📚💻LPC LLM…let’s talk! I am officially 3 weeks into studying the LPC LLM part-time, online with ULaw. It’s been tough to adapt to studying and working a 9-5 job at the same time but I think I’ve settled into a good routine and have already picked up some great tips and habits which I thought I could share. 🗓️PLAN YOUR WEEK🗓️ I think one of the best things I utilised straight away was the power of “to-do lists” and weekly planning. By having a weekly planner and creating a to-do list at the start of the week I can visually see what tasks I need to do, when I have the time to do them and then can allocate slots to each task. By knowing exactly what I need to do for each unit I feel a sense of accomplishment when I can tick an element off, even if it is just as small as reading the relevant legislation. ⏰TIMINGS⏰ I have used the app ‘Flora’ since my A-Levels and it is a LIFESAVER. Flora is a concept where you set a study timer to ‘grow different trees’ and you can’t go on your phone whilst its growing or you will ‘kill’ it. It also lets me see how long I spend studying each week which is really helpful. 🖍️TABBING & HIGHLIGHTING🖍️ I was told before I started my LPC to by plastic tabs, fine line permanent markers, plastic post it notes and many many highlighters. These stationary items have been such a blessing for all the extensive reading and to add feedback/comments into the textbooks. Don’t make notes on the reading, there is too much. Instead, tab and highlight with a key that makes sense to you. If anyone wants a separate post on how I tab/annotate my textbooks let me know! 📖LPC Buddy📖 Purchasing the LPCBuddy has made consolidating so much easier and ensures I have examplars, links to the textbook pages, and everything I need. I cannot recommend it enough! 😴RELAX😴 One of the best tips I received before starting was from a friend of mine who said to have a designated personal day each week. If you study ever day, you will get burnt out, so every Sunday I close all my textbooks, and my laptop screen and take it as a recharging personal day!

The second half of the LPC LLM is fully underway!!😳 I took the time after exams and for Christmas to really give myself some down time and space to enjoy spending time with my family. Now I’m back and ready to complete the final year of this course. This term is solicitors accounts, real estate and dispute resolution which is intense but hopefully I can get straight back into it!! #lpc #legalpracticecourse #solicitor #womeninthelawuk #criminallaw #realestate #disputeresolution #solicitoraccounts #ulaw #youngprofessionals

✨SFL -LEGAL WRITING⚖️📖 Let’s start with the idea that long words do not impress the examiner! This briefly means that in our writing, we must be concise and straightforward. Yesterday, I drafted my first legal letter. Thankfully, it went well as a first attempt. However, I still need to improve the consistency of my presentation style. I bought the LPC Answered Core Module Guide, which provides a straightforward and condensed understanding of the topic, and I love it. Let's keep on working on that! Cindy.

A study date with myself - drinking what I love, reading what I love, at a museum that I love. Excited but also super nervous about my exams next week. I think I need to do some 瞑想 and watch one of my favourite animes. Might just do that tonight ✨🎐 / Rona • • • • #lawstudent #stockholm #studygram #lawstudy #studydiary #ulaw #sweden #museum #studydate #studyreel #studywithme #studyvlog #studyreel #graduatediplomainlaw #lawreel #aspiringbarrister #englishstudent #contractlaw #englishlaw #futurelawyer #kurdishgirl #kurdish #ストックホルム #学生 #カフェ #勉強 #美術館

So how is the LPC *really* going… I think I was quite naive starting the LPC thinking it would be a breeze🥲 Nope. I was wrong. The LPC might just be the most intense part of my education journey I’ve ever faced (but I suppose if it was easy, everyone would be doing it). I think the content itself is fine, it’s the READING and the TASKS and the ALL ROUND WORKLOAD that is hard to juggle! I would class myself as a pretty organised person, so I like to try and get a week ahead for upcoming workshops But, some weeks it’s physically impossible when they’re asking for 2467 pages of reading and 36 tasks by Monday 🥹. That being said, I’m very thankful that it’s just a 9 month course because if the degree was like this I dunno how long I would have lasted😂… Anyway, this Saturday morning we’re onto business law prep for Monday (first official day back at uni)! #lawstudent #lawdegree #lawschool #lawblog #lpc #legal #legalpracticecourse #law #student #degree #school #masters #college #studying #studylaw #lawstudy #study #lawyerlife #lawyer #lawyertobe #lawstudents #lawlife #ulaw #university #college #uni

10 days left until my final exams, and I have definitely been trying my best to breathe better, relax better, and take a break whenever my body needs it. Today the sun peeked through the window while I was reading, and that too was well-needed. ありがとうね、太陽さん♡ / Rona • • • • #lawstudent #stockholm #studygram #studydiary #ulaw #gdlstudent #sweden #cafevibes #cafestudying #cafe #studyreel #studywithme #graduatediplomainlaw #lincolnsinn #studyvlog #shortreel #lawstudy #aspiringbarrister #englishstudent #tortlaw #contractlaw #englishlaw #futurelawyer #kurdishgirl #kurdish #ストックホルム #学生 #カフェ #勉強

More Seoulful study diary entries 〜 This trip made me feel like I was a Korean law student, until I visited the Hongik University Law Library and it said ”students only” lol. -snap back to reality Rona- Oh well, I still got Lincoln’s Inn library waiting around the corner in London.
