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

๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿฆ  Amongst this coronavirus chaos letโ€™s talk about something positive ๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿฆ  โฃโฃ โฃโฃ FULL TIME LPC STUDENTS. โฃโฃ โฃโฃ CAN YOU BELIEVE, WE ARE HALF WAY THROUGH THE COURSE? โฃโฃ โฃโฃ Not only that, we got stage 1 of our results today. Please do not be put down by anybody who posts what they got. Iโ€™ve been there. When I was at university studying law a lot of people would post their results and exactly what they got. Thatโ€™s of course completely fine! You should be so proud and showcase what you achieved through your own hard work BUT just remember, you are completely different to whoever has posted what, and, the danger is you start drawing comparatives ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป โ™€๏ธโฃโฃ โฃโฃ ๐‘๐ž๐ฆ๐ž๐ฆ๐›๐ž๐ซ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฆ๐จ๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐๐ซ๐š๐ฐ ๐œ๐จ๐ฆ๐ฉ๐š๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž๐ฌ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎโ€™๐ซ๐ž ๐๐š๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ž๐ง๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐จ๐ฐ๐ง ๐ฐ๐จ๐ซ๐ญ๐ก. โฃโฃ โฃโฃ Donโ€™t forget how far youโ€™ve come. No matter how hard it gets. โฃโฃ โฃ On another note and related to the picture - ITS ELECTIVE TIME! So exciting! I did my prep for my workshops this week and I was SO happy. Bit stressed because itโ€™s something new BUT they are things Iโ€™ve chosen โค๏ธ And theyโ€™re only three exams as opposed to those deathly written exams AND MCQโ€™s for BLP, RE and DISPUTE. โฃ โฃโฃ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐‹๐„๐†๐€๐‹๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ๐ฑ

Electives time!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Stage 1 of the LPC grades are out and congratulations to everyone who received their results today๐Ÿฅณ to those who didnโ€™t do as well as they wanted, please keep your head up! remember youโ€™ve done your best and you get to improve and have another smash it again its not the end at all. I am really excited to get into my electives because they are areas of interest and I think this had made the prep and reading a lot less of a chore๐Ÿ˜‚ however staying productive without the library has started off a little rocky but I think ill make a schedule for the days im not at work. My electives are: -Family, Employment and Immigration. Hope everyone is doing well , stay safe and dont stress โค๏ธ

โœ๐Ÿผ EXAM RESULTS โœ๐Ÿผ - Today I received my exam results for the exams I sat over November, December and January and I received competent (C) for all the competent/not competent graded modules and distinctions for all the percentage graded modules!!๐ŸŽ‰ - Interviewing - Competent Legal Writing - Competent Practical Legal Research - Competent Solicitorsโ€™ Accounts - 75% Distinction Wills - 71% Distinction - Iโ€™m really happy with these grades, especially practical legal research as that was the one I was probably most worried about to be honest! - I thought solicitorsโ€™ accounts went slightly better than the grade I got, but itโ€™s still a distinction and Iโ€™m more than happy with that! Especially as Iโ€™m juggling the LPC full time whilst working as a paralegal part time...Iโ€™d say Iโ€™ve pretty much smashed it! - Feeling proud! Thanks u_law โ˜‘๏ธ

First LPC results came out today and I could not be happier. Competent in all my competency based subjects, 71% Distinction in Wills and 90% Distinction in Solicitors Accounts! _ Maths was never a natural ability of mine, so this is a particularly massive achievement for me. All the hard work pays off! _ Thank you u_law !! _ #lpc #results #futuresolicitor #ulaw #law #lawstudent #lawschool

~STUDY FROM HOME~ I must admit, although very selfishly, this is not what I imagined my experience of the LPC would be when I first applied this time last year. Here I am trying desperately to adjust to my new reality and itโ€™s rather taking a toll on my mental health! Something I have often spoken about is my mental health, and I have to say studying the LPC (more specifically meeting new people and frequently socialising) has really helped my mental health, and I became the happiest I had been in years. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” This new reality is very difficult and saddening for a lot of us, as Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™m not the only one who feels this way, and certainly there are those of you who have perhaps had a worse deal with this virus and had to directly deal with it! This adjustment is one the will take a lot of time. But I am adamant that as a community we can all help each other get through this ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” It is upsetting that after I had a lovely holiday away I have to come back and see the awful effects these events have had on everyone, and certainly that I have to post anything but an upbeat post (we like to pave positive here on elle.pc), but as I said we can all help each other through this ๐Ÿค โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” Please feel free to reach out if you are feeling the effects of the situation, I know moral and motivation is low right now (Iโ€™m certainly struggling to get myself into gear for the electives term) but we have got this ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ #lpc #ulaw #law #lawyer #lawyergram #legal #paralegal #womeninlaw #traineelawyer #futurelawyer #study #studygram #lawstudying

Happy Thursday my friends! I hope you are all keeping safe and sound. Iโ€™ve been spending my days at home, except for when I need some essentials. My uni has closed its doors. But teaching will continue online. This means that all workshop material will be made available and virtual classrooms will begin by next week. Ive studied a little bit this week so Iโ€™m planning to step it up by this weekend. I want to take advantage of this time to write up my notes properly and build up my exam binders. Stay positive and message me if you need to chat Xoxo #lawstudent #unioflaw #studygram #lawschool #studymotivation #homework #studywithme #law

After an emotional weekend, and struggling to self-motivate after an intense exam season, I am back on track. ๐Ÿ™… . It is important to rest and recuperate, for your mental and physical health. โ˜‰ In an uncertain time, self-isolation and social distancing is allowing us time to relax somewhat, do those tasks we have been meaning to do for some time and do our bit to stop the dreaded virus from spreading. ๐Ÿ˜ท I hope you're staying safe at home! . This week, I decided not to travel into the city for classes and work from home. Thankfully, for Ulaw students, a lot of our prep and teaching material is on our portal already so next week, when we go 100% online, will be a new approach to our course. I am concerned about completing workshop tasks alone as I prefer working in groups. So myself and a fellow colleague and friend, have decided to Skype each other to go through the workshop tasks together.โ˜บ Needs must! . I am also planning for my MSc case study due on 22 April which I also have to prepare a presentation for, as well as another interview for a training contract! Its all pretty full on and hectic at the moment, but we must make the most of our situation. ๐Ÿ‘ . Stay safe, stay in and wash your hands people! ๐Ÿ‘ . #studyfromhome #workfromhome #lawblog #blogger #studentblogger #lpcstudent #lpcmsc #myjourneyintolaw #lawstudent #lawschool #covid19 #pandemic #ulaw #ulawstudents

Please all keep positive and keep focus on your goals in this uncertain time .... ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ I work in Education and today been told not to go into work from next week .... ๐Ÿ˜ต Thinking of all people around the world , keep safe .. uncertain times ahead .. #focus #gdl #gdlstudent #law #uni #motivate #lawstudent #lawyer #lawerlife #lovelaw #ulaw

Good Morning๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿค— Hope you have a productive day. I've been on a run this morning and now I'm about to start my prep for next week. It's been hard trying to focus on uni whilst everything is going on around us. _______ However, now that all my classes are going to be online for the next two weeks and two weeks of Easter break I feel like there's some sense of normality again. _________ Tomorrow is Results day. So I'm trying my best to keep busy and keep my mind out of it. Wish me luck ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ’š #lawtina #lawyertobe #motivation #lpclife #ulaw #aspiringsolicitor #studying #motivation #studyfromhome

Been waiting for this for SO long. โฃ โฃ I study at Ulaw and the electives I have chosen are:โฃ โฃ 1. Advanced real estate โฃ 2. Commercial law and practice โฃ 3. Intellectual property law โฃ โฃ I chose real estate because I really enjoy it. Itโ€™s technical and you always have something new to learn. And itโ€™s tangible, you can actually see the end result with a property whether itโ€™s a development, acquisition etc. โฃ โฃ Commercial law and intellectual property go hand in hand. Iโ€™ve been fortunate enough to gain experience in both of these areas whilst I was on secondment. I think itโ€™s really important to have a good base contract knowledge for any area of law as ultimately all practice areas are effectively based off a contract. โฃ โฃ Covid-19 has basically caused hysteria (understandably) and Ulaw has sensibly closed campuses and moved learning online. The future of face to face workshops are uncertain at the moment and that makes me REALLY NERVOUS. It seems online workshops are more work and actually, I learn so much from face to face workshops. I find I learn amazingly from my peers and doing the group work so weโ€™ll see how it goes. โฃ โฃ How are you all feeling about Covid-19 and what electives did you choose? โฃ โฃ ๐“๐ก๐ž๐‹๐„๐†๐€๐‹๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ๐ฑ

Happy Tuesday TLP'ers! โ˜‰ . Firstly, I would like to congratulate all full-time LPC students for completing term 1 and all of our 11 exams and assessments! Its been a challenge, but we did it! ๐Ÿพ . Over the last week I have struggled with motivating and organising myself when completing my reading and prep for this week. Completing lengthy tasks has felt like a burden rather than a challenege I usually enjoy. So, I have rested and recuperated over the weekend. ๐Ÿ›Œ . I soon came to the conclusion that I am fatigued from exams because I wasn't eating and drinking regularly enough which affected me. It is SO important to eat a good balanced diet during exams with plenty of water (with little treats too when revising). ๐Ÿฝโ˜• . Moral of the story - eat well, drink lots and do not deprive yourself during exam season! ๐Ÿ . This week is a busy one for me, I go back to uni for classes, but I have decided to work from home (thankfully our material for teaching is online anyway - thank you Ulaw) to avoid this nasty virus! โŒ . My university has decided to stop teaching today going forward, and it is shut for 1 month from 23rd March. ๐Ÿ™ˆ . Stay safe and wash your hands as much as possible! ๐Ÿ‘ . #TLPTakeover by Kirsty Henton (kirstytakesonlaw), #LPC student at the University of Law . #lawschool #lawcareers #law #lawstudents #lawstudentlife #solicitor #ulaw #exams

H A P P Y T U E S D A Y.. Coffee and tort all day today. โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ“– I am actually enjoying tort a lot more than I thought I would. Anyone else with me on that? Or do you guys think Iโ€™m crazy?๐Ÿ˜‚

M O N D A Y A G A I N... Feels like everything is slowing down at the moment with the current situation, so I am going to embrace it and create some positivity from it! Planning to get ahead with my uni work, finally get my to do list down, heyyy might even get my fitness regime up to a scratch too, we will see... ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

EU law catch up; This is about 30mins just re-reading my notes and making sure Iโ€™ve understood them. This is what studying law looks like ๐Ÿ“š Study Tip: talking out loud to yourself, teaching yourself or others is the best way to really understand the material you are studying! While this is good for learning and understanding, itโ€™s also good for active recall and testing your memory ๐Ÿ‘Œ . . . #studygram #studymotivation #study #studywithme #law #lawstudent #liveprospectus #ulaw
