Chilly mornings ❄️

Hey guys! Merry Christmas! It feels great to be out of uni for Christmas. My coursework has been released now and I feel okay about it, it all seems doable, so I am relieved How are you feeling?

The start of the month signals a time of reflection for me. New month= new goals They definitely don’t have to be all about law! Instead reflect on how you have been coping with change/life and what it is you want. Then think of actionable things that will help you get closer to that. For me, the start of the LPC has been really engaging but has left me feeling like I’ve lost a sense of routine! Late nights and the realisation there is always more to do can be all consuming! Therefore… My goals are: 1. A consistent evening routine 2. Adapt my weekly plan/schedule to accommodate for the way the LPC works 3. Take breaks that incorporate healthy habits/things that make me happy 😊 Starting today- this is a photo of me on a dog walk! I am always happiest out in nature- wherever I can find it 🍁 What are your goals for October? . . . #octobergoals #ulaw #lawyersofinstagram #lawlifebalance #mindfulness

🍃// Good morning bees. Happy Thursday! The other weekend, I went hiking with my boyfriend. We haven’t hiked in a few months so it was really good to get out and breathe in the fresh air. It got very humid at times! Today I have work until 4:30pm then got bootcamp this evening. I’ve been slowly getting through the prep work for Dispute Resolution, I’m so happy that university is from next Wednesday and can actually go into campus. Is anyone else going into ULaw’s Manchester campus from next Wednesday? Feel free to let me know and would love to meet you and say hello! I will be preparing for the next Knowledge Hive Series which is around LPAs v Deputies. Please let me know if you have an idea for next week’s Knowledge Hive post🌼 #law #hike #hikers #nature #forest #reservoir #greenery #floral #berries #autumn #humid #cloudy #lawstudent #ulaw #lpc #solicitor #traineesolicitor #paralegal #lawblog #study #studygram #lawstudygram #exams #finalyear #campus #freshers #undergrad #postgrad #mastersinlaw #lpcllm

Prep work for my very first workshop! Pretty basic stuff tbh- IPP (introduction to professional practice) on interviewing and advising clients does not require lots of detailed note-taking. On the other hand, there is lots of reading to cover so manage your time accordingly. Btw once I figure out my style of prepping for workshops and consolidating notes, I’ll be sharing details with you all soon! #ulaw #lpc #lawstudy #lawstudygram #notetaking #studylaw #lawyering #studymotivation #llb #motivation #futurelawyer #lawenforcement #lawupdates #lawschoolproblems #lawyerstyle #covid #legalknowledge #lawstudentproblems #business #studying #lawcollege #instalawyer #lawyerbae

How to study when you are ill: 1. Don’t! I always struggle to accept this, but if you aren’t well, you have to just let go of expectations of a “super productive week” and let yourself recover! 2. Re prioritise the work you had planned and see if you were wasting time on things that weren’t helping you anyway 🤷🏻 ♀️ 3. Take some time to do things you don’t usually have time for! 📺 4. If you are starting to feel a bit better, start off light- perhaps listening to lectures where the brain power required is not as high as workshop tasks like drafting a particulars of claim! Take regular breaks and stop if you’re struggling! Remember if your body is fighting off flu/cold you won’t be able to study at the same pace or with the same attention span as usual! 5. Remember to have perspective- this feeling won’t last forever and you will have more than enough time to catch up on what you missed. I hope this helps ☀️ 🤒 📚 do you have any tips? . . . #lawstudent #legalpracticecourse #ulaw #studytips

I find that with no lessons for almost 10 days it’s easy to fall out of routine when you need it most! Here are some things I’m finding useful: 1. Start the day with something you enjoy- it is a reading week after all! Do what you don’t usually have time for ☕️ 🍁 2. Create your own “commute”- you might still enjoy a walk around the block if that’s what you’re used to before getting your head stuck in books 3. Write out your non negotiable tasks for the day alongside all non work tasks/things you’d like to do. Fit these in during breaks when you need them, instead of trying to write an hour by hour plan! 4. Choose something that “signals” the end of the day! For me this is turning off my laptop and putting all my books away on a shelf rather than have them staring at me while I try to chill and watch TV… 📺 #lpc #lawstudent #studygram #ulaw #bristollawstudents #coffeetime

🦋// Happy Sunday. The weather has been so nice lately, and yet we’re in mid-September! I saw a beautiful butterfly on Friday when I was putting the washing out. Nature really is beautiful. There were also some honeybees and a bumblebee who came to say hello. Today I’m sorting my room and then prepping ready for Wednesday. I’ve got to finish off Dispute Resolution then prepare for Solicitor’s Accounts. I get more books tomorrow even though they should have come on Friday. I didn’t realise that we had to order them as I was given them when we first did online streaming last year (No idea what to do with the other books! Got way too many for the shelf!). As posted on the Instagram story, the knowledge hive series this week has been postponed til next week and that’s due to putting law work first and therefore not having the time to prep the posts for what should have been this week’s topic - LPAs (Lasting Powers of Attorny) v Deputies. These roles are so similar to one another but differ slightly. If you want to know why, check out my page next Sunday!👀 It looks like we may be having another sunny day, enjoy it if you can!☺️💕 // #law #butterfly #bee #honeybee #bumblebee #flowers #garden #sun #hot #sunshine #study #university #ulaw #instalawyer #lawyer #solicitor #lawfirm #lawschool #lawstudent #lawstudy #lawstudygram #studygram #paralegal #exams #freshers #llb #lpc #llm #mastersinlaw #sundayfunday
