Live Prospectus - by the people who know us best, our students

Forgot to show you my valentine's gifts. . I'm conflicted. . It's like he wants me to take on the world, but at the same time not leave the house. . The snuggle game is real. #unlawyerly_lawyer #aspiringsolicitor #aspiringlawyer #trainingcontract #law #lpc #ulaw

💝// Good evening bees. And happy Valentine’s Day. Whether you spent the day with your special one (I did and didn’t want it to end!) or you’re learning to love yourself, I hope it’s been a good Sunday and weekend for you! I got spoilt from my boyfriend. I got flowers AND a terrarium! I’ve never had a terrarium before but want to look after it as best as I can and water it when I need it to. Next week I’m hoping will be a productive week again like this week. I have my final session of university on Wednesday for business law and then in three weeks will be the exam. Still a bit nervous for it but very grateful it’s an open book exam☺️. Enjoy your night and I shall post soon!🌼// #valentinesday #flowers #bouqeut #terrarium #boyfriend #beige #lawstudent #lawblog #inlove #study #student #lawyer #solicitor #ulaw #universityoflaw #chocolate #weekend #studygram #studyblr #exams #examseason #lpcllm #lawdegree #undergrad #postgrad #llb #gdl

🥰Happy Valentines🥰 roses make me happy but also doing the prep for the LAST workshops 😝 how fast has that gone! Revision is daunting but I also find it so exciting haha . . Have a lovely day xxx

The Lunar New Year festivities in China include having feasts with the family over two days with specific dishes each of which carries a prosperous message. The children receive red packets (or “Lai see”, shown here at the bottom right corner of the image) which are gift money as a new year’s blessing. A very common greeting would be "Kung Hei Fat Choi" which translates as “wishing you a good fortune”. It’s a standard phrase before getting your Lai See. There you have it! Wishing all of you good fortune over the year! May all your dreams and wishes come true <3 #chinesenewyear #ulaw #lawstudent

🌨// Snow is honestly so pretty when it’s not been touched, but I’m looking forward to warmer weather! It’s a Monday and another snowy day here at home. I’ve been working from home and am until 4:50pm (earlier finish for a change due to working a bit earlier). Then I’m going to get some business law prep done! I’m trying to do revision for the business law exam at the same time, but there’s so so much to revise on!😅 Pictures are from a snowy walk with my boyfriend on Saturday. Best company as always❤️ I will post soon - I will be posting how I keep organised during the LPC! #snow #snowday #snowperson #views #landscape #walks #hike #winter #law #lawblog #student #lawstudent #studyblog #studygram #studyblr #lawstudygram #university #ulaw #universityoflaw #snowflakes #monday #instalaw #alevels #lpc #llb #gdl #exams #solicitor #workingfromhome

✨🌟MY LPC CERTIFICATE ARRIVED🌟✨ ⁣ ⁣ I’m so excited to have finally received my LPC certificate from u_law!! Studying the LPC full time alongside working 2 jobs (completely my choice) and then all electives during the lockdown meant it was one of the most challenging years of my life! ⁣ ⁣ I don’t know if I’ve shared this before, but when I started my LPC, I still had my paralegal job and I decided to move home to save money to a new house in a new place I’d never lived in🏡 (my parents moved in my 3rd year of undergrad) and I got another job working in bar to try and help make some new friends. Pretty much everyone told me I’d taken on too much - a woman at work who’d completed her LPC actually put bets on in the office that I’d either quit the LPC or my jobs by the end of October!! At the time it upset me and I definitely stressed that I’d bitten off more than I could chew BUT are after a lot of early mornings and late nights, huge amounts of organisation and dedication, I not only passed, didn’t quit anything but with also got a DISTINCTION!!💫🥂⁣ ⁣ If someone tells you that you can’t do something - don’t let it get you down but instead have the determination to prove them wrong!!💪🏻😜💜 ⁣ ⁣ Lots of you are studying the LPC - here are my top tips:⁣ 📍Key to success is in the preparation. Work hard but work smart. Create useful tables and checklists ready for the open book exams. ⁣ 📍Pay attention and make good workshop notes. ⁣ 📍Do the reading and properly prepare for every workshop. ⁣ 📍Show up. I juggled a million things and still didn’t miss a single workshop. ⁣ 📍Enjoy it. I found it so much more interesting that my LLB. ⁣ ⁣ Off to go put this on the wall underneath my Law degree💓 - a little reminder everyday that I achieved THAT!💫💛💛 ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #lpc #LPC #ulaw #postgrad #law #lawstudent #achievement #lawdegree #futuretrainee

January exams completed.... now for some pizza and bubbles before it all starts again next week! 🥂🍕📝

NOT FEELING IT Bed was calling, raining was pouring, going outside didn’t sound appealing... But, I gave myself 15 mins... did the slowest jog around the block and it’s DONE✅ Sometimes it’s ok to say nah and chill, other times you gotta suck it up because you know you’ll feel a million times better for it✨ #happywednesday . . . . . . #morningrun #habit #motivation #productivity #fitness #studentfitness #unilife📚 #trainingcontract #lawlife #lawyerlife #lawstudent #lawstudies🎓 #lawschool #lawschoollife #lawstudentblog #studentblog #studentblogger #studygram #studygramuk #productivitytips #productivitytip #studentlife #gradjob #gradlife #graduate #lpc #universityoflaw #studentlife #runnersofinstagram #runningcommunity

✨ The Taste of Success ✨ Such a lovely little message to receive in the post this morning. I cannot wait to start studying the LPC with u_law next year! 📚🎉 #universityoflaw #lpc #studying #studygram #thetasteofsuccess #tea #law #legal #student #lawstudent #lawcareer #acceptance #lawstudentblog

👯 ♀️Making New Friends Covid👯 September time means a lot of people on here will be starting new courses and degrees! It’s great to meet new people and make new friends but how do you do this when everything is online??? - My recommendation is to take the plunge and suggest a Zoom call with your classmates! I know it sounds a bit daunting to suggest in a group chat and you don’t want to be ‘that’ person who looks too keen, but at the end of the day WHO CARES. Everyone wants to make friends - especially with their future colleagues. Suggesting a zoom call is the equivalent of asking if anyone wants to go to the pub after class and we all have to adapt in Covid times. - This picture was taken this morning and we’ve been having around 12+ people join every week now. Our LPC is split into 2 groups so it’s great to make friends with people in the other group who I wouldn’t normally cross paths with. When we all start our TC in September I won’t have to go through the whole nervously making friends thing again because of these calls! If I’m struggling one day as a trainee I’ll know I have a group of other trainees I can rely on which is a great feeling. - Take the plunge and make new friends!

Celebrating an overall distinction in my Msc in law, business and management 🍾🍸 - After finishing the LPC, I received the opportunity to interview for a client secondment through my future firm (as my Training Contract doesn't start until 2021). - After I had a phone interview with the client, and I commenced work the last week of July. - Even though I didn't expect to start my legal career working from home, I am so grateful to have this opportunity and I hope to make the most of it. This is why I haven't been as active as I wish I could be. - Adapting to the graduate life and working from home can be overwhelming but I know I am not alone. So that's why I would like to start sharing what life after the lpc is like for me as I start my first legal role and get ready to commence my TC. - Hope you find this new series helpful and hopeful that you can achieve anything you want 😊 #lpclife #lawyer #lawyerblog #master #ulaw #lawblog #lawtina #solicitor #trainingcontract #paralegal #workfromhome #studygram #studying #grateful #internationalstudent #class2020
