Scrolling through my camera roll and completely forgot to mention a virtual talk I attended hosted by u_law. • This was all about the future skills law students will need when transitioning into practising lawyers. This really gave an insight into how technology is constantly challenging law firms and how these firms need to update their databases - but also how can one firm stand out from the other in order to pick up a higher clientele list, now moving into a generation where methods n processes will all be the same. • A very interesting talk and I’m so glad I attended. Keep an eye out for free virtual talks n events happening - it really helps develop an insight & gives you more things to put on your CV !! • Hoping everyone is well and safe 🤍 ———— #lawstudent #lawlife #legalprofession #womeninthelaw #universityoflaw #lawyers

All dressed up and somewhere virtually to go..👈🏼👈🏼👈🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Loved having an excuse to wear some of my workwear this week (even if it was hot!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am glad to have attended the legal cheek virtual vacation scheme as it has helped me learn about different areas of law I didn’t necessarily know were an option, and then made me think about these new areas as potential future career aspirations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It had been great to have made some real connections with peers on the same journey to professionals in the field of work I admire. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For anyone that attended and we are now connected, hey hi hello my dms are always open for support, and to anyone that didn’t attend, brightnetwork also have a virtual internship event coming up in July so check it out, I will be attending that too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #law#lawstudent#lawblogger#lawtech#aspiringsolicitor#maturestudent#studygram#lawdegree#studying#motivation#revision#vacationscheme#lawyer#lawyersofinstagram#lawyerlifestyle#trainee#degreelife#study#positivity#instalawyer#intern#legal#ulaw#legalcheek#instagood#bestoftheday#commercial#virtuallegalcheek#university

The Legal Cheek Virtual Vacation Scheme has officially come to a close! This week has been so eye opening. At the start of this week I had never seen any law-related presentations, done any case studies, didn’t know anyone in the field, and hadn’t yet been accepted onto my law conversion masters. Over the course of this week I’ve now heard from lawyers in the fields of litigation, pro bono and legal aid, environmental law, employment, insolvency, legal tech, and more. It was also very inspiring to see women established in their fields taking part in providing these presentations as well. I also became involved in the creation of the VirLaw Network (virlawnetwork) at the start of this week and now have friends in the field and no longer feel so lost when it comes to who I can talk to about law. The support from them has been so heart-warming, especially their congratulations when I received a conditional place to study the MA Law partway through this week. Hopefully this is just the start of my legal journey, and the vac scheme was a great way to briefly look at different aspects of the law. I filmed this whole week, so that shall be going up on my youtube channel at some point over the next few weeks! Thank you to legalcheek and u_law for running this scheme - it has been invaluable in helping me navigate the legal world as a non-law student.
