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

Did you even finish the LPC if you haven’t taken a pic with all your books and folders?! Another year and another degree in the bag - finally finished my LPC and Masters on Monday 🤩 16 exams and assessments all done ✅ It has easily been one of the most difficult years but so worth it! Excited to see what the future holds 🥂 u_law #ulaw

Setting Boundaries with People: I am a big fan of podcasts and one of the things that is common across the podcasts I listen to is setting boundaries with the people around you. Here is a few things I have learnt and implemented to better myself! #studygram #law #lawstudent #lawstudentsofinstagram #thelawyersstudygram #reflection #boundaries #people #organisation #study #coffee #studymotivation #gdl #ULaw

✨ Paying Attention To Your Own Journey ✨ So today I did my first ever solo IG live, which I’d say was pretty successful! I am so happy that you guys want to see me babble on answering your questions it really does mean a lot! But anyway, this post is dedicated to paying attention to your own journey and focusing on yourself rather than others! Whether this is through your studies or career targets, it’s so important not to get caught up with what everyone else is doing and questioning why you aren’t doing it! I’ve listed a few tips below to help if you ever feel deflated: ▪️ You are on your own path, no one can take that from you and you should focus on yourself rather than others to push you further! ▫️Be happy for people! Yes it can be disheartening if others seem to be way ahead of you, but just be happy and content for them and leave it at that, don’t start questioning yourself! ▪️Understand that you ARE worthy enough to be where you want to be. You just need to put the ground work in and push yourself as much as you can to smash your goals🙌🏼. ▫️ Finally, rather than focusing on what you haven’t got, focus on appreciating what you HAVE got! Although you may not think it, people will also be thinking the same about you in relation to how far you are, so be grateful for your journey so far😁! 🌟 How do you focus on yourself? 🌟 #studygram #lawdegree #lawstudy #lawblog #lawblogger #llb #revision #lawstudent #lawstudies #futurelawyer #lawschool #studylaw #llblaw #studymotivation #studytips #studyspo #studystudy #studyblog #studyinspo #studygramcommunity #studyaccount #studyblr #studynotes #studywithme #studying #ulaw #studyblogger #studygrammer #studylife #studyinspiration

My peaceful me time 💫 🍄 I had a much better day today after last nights panic about the near future. 🍄 I made this little video of the walk I took myself on today which made me feel so relaxed and at peace after such a long while. 🍄 Since last night I have booked an appointment with my uni employability service for the coming Thursday where I want to discuss vacation schemes, training contracts and all things application related! 🍄 I am also researching firms which I have a genuine interest in working for as applying to lots of firms just for the sake of it will be a waste of effort and time. 🍄 Even though I thought I had my heart set on being a criminal barrister I am somewhat shifting to other interests such as being an intellectual property solicitor so I am trying to expand my thoughts and really have a hard think about what my heart truly wants me to do. 🍄 I do want to say a huge thank you to everyone who replied to my story last night as I really was feeling overwhelmed and left in the dark. Your sweet words will stick with me and I hope that I can be there to help you when you need it most in the future too :). 🍄 #london #londonstudent #londonunistudent #uni #unistudent study #studygram #law #lawschool #lawstudent #lawlondonstudent #ulaw u_law

Happy Sunday 🤍 . Working from bed today✌️ I’m absolutely shattered this week! Sounds silly but I feel like it’s such an achievement that I managed to attend every class and do absolutely all prep work over 24 hours in advance 😂 as well as working part time and attending a Lincolns inn event☺️ on Thursday evening we got to meet the benchers at Lincoln’s inn and we had a really nice chat about reduction in the number of jurors for criminal cases in order to try and get through case backlogs. . I’ve given myself Friday and Saturday off of BTC work so I just focused on actual work and keeping my space tidy/clean. Woke up today at 9.30 and feel motivated as I have 0 chores to do and a supply of creme eggs 😂 . I also realised that tomorrow we get our results from December exams/assessments! I’m having a mild panic attack whenever I think about it😅 . Have a restful Sunday & good luck with any work you’re doing today ☺️🤍 . . . . . . . #student #law #lawstudent #lawschool #bpp #btc #lpc #ulaw #city #london #university #study #revise #pink #feminist #legallyblonde #lawyer #attorney #ellewoods #feminism #women #work #court #legal #barrister #solicitor #coffee #fashion #womensupportingwomen #money

• LPC Exam Preparation • I personally found a big jump from LLB to LPC. For me, it seems a lot more pressured regarding getting work done and also exam periods. Here are some of my tips for preparing: • Tabs 📑 : There are a lot of open book exams in the LPC so get tabbing! Have a folder and colour code, e.g. pink = structures, green = examplars, so within topics you can easily find what you are looking for. • Practice makes perfect 🔁 : Unlike some exams (particularly GCSE and A-Levels) there aren’t loads of past exam papers, so become familiar with the specimen and tasks completed in the workshop. NB: the textbook also has examples that you can work through, completed with answers. • Ask for help ❓ : Make a revision buddy or ask your lecturers on areas you don't understand, they are there to help you. • Timings ⏰ : LPC exams are definitely tight on time, also some of the timings have changed recently, so make sure you are familiar with the time allowed. Also give some thought to how you’ll best structure the time for the questions. Remember in the exam, it is better to attempt every question, instead of doing e.g. 3 out of 4 questions completely, as you'll potentially pick up more marks. • Give yourself a break ☕ : Everyone wants to do well, and especially with the pandemic, it is easy to put too much pressure on yourself, particularly with fewer distractions. However, I promise it will be detrimental in the long run. Relax, you deserve it! Go for a walk, have a cup of tea, chill out, watch Netflix, read a book, have a nap - whatever you fancy, do it. Finally, remember... You can do it! #lpc #ulawsma #ulaw #ulawbristol #liveprospectus #ulawlpc #ulawstudent #lpcstudent #postgrad #postgraduate #bristol #bristolstudent #studygram #desksetup #daffodills #notes #writing #revisiontips #revision #studytips #tips #revision #studying #exams # examtips u_law

A light at the end of the tunnel💡 ♡ After the PM’s announcement last night about the roadmap out of lockdown, it’s weirdly made me feel more motivated to get work done today🤷🏻 ♀️ ♡ Has anyone else felt like this? Or am I just weird?😂 ♡ Have a great day and stay safe♥️ • • #Law #Criminology #LawStudent #Student #Ulaw #TheUniversityOfLaw #Study #Studygram #Studying #SecondYear #2ndYear #SecondYearStudent #UKStudent #UK #UKLawStudent #Leeds #LeedsStudent#Lockdown #UKLockdown #Motivated #Light #Roadmap #StaySafe #2021

Avoiding Network Nightmares: Over the last year I have dramatically increased the amount of networking I do. This is the first in a three part series which has developed from trial and error and utilising jkellyhoey guidance on buildyourdreamnetwork and the networking masterclass that I did last year when I felt like a headless chicken! #studygram #law #lawstudent #lawstudentsofinstagram #thelawyersstudygram #reflection #people #organisation #study #coffee #studymotivation #gdl #ULaw #networking #nightmare #social #linkedin #twitter #bydn

💻 WORKSHOPS 💻 Firstly, MORE apologies for lack of content. I promise I genuinely haven’t had the time this week (and was v stressed on one day). Anyway, quick description of workshops: these are our small group sessions (I believe some unis call them seminars) and are where we apply what we learnt in the corresponding lecture. This may be more u_law orientated but hopefully you can apply them to your own studies. Here’s how to smash them: 🔲 PREPARE - again, preparation is key. You’ll be set prep reading (which we access online) and preparatory tasks. It is so much easier if you do them! For one of my workshops I didn’t do all the prep reading for, I felt a bit lost as cases and Statute references were being mentioned and I didn’t know what was being talked about! 🔲 CONSOLIDATE - make sure you consolidate your lecture notes so you have clear understandable notes for the workshop tasks. Remember to consolidate afterwards as well, so you have a template from your tasks to apply to practice questions. 🔲 INTERACT!! I feel this is the most important one. I get Covid makes it more difficult as things are online, but that’s even more reason to take part. Make sure you contribute to the group tasks, and speak with your tutor. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, an opportunity you don’t have with a pre-recorded session. I’ll be back with another post soon. Hope you all have a good evening! ✨ #llb #law #ulaw #liveprospectus #stopfordianlaw #2ndyear #lawstudent #workshops #seminars #familylaw #universitylife #consolidate

Advocacy done✅ Can you tell by my mood I think it went well??😅So glad it's over now!🙌🏻 I have to admit the LPC has helped me so much with my fear of public speaking and presenting. I would always get very anxious in workshops when asked to answer or present and started to doubt whether I could be a good lawyer if I can't do speak up or present! 👩🏼 ⚖️ Since my interviewing and advocacy workshops + mocks everything changed! Both the advocacy mock and the real exam today went really well! (don't want to jinx anything🤞🏻) If I could give one tip is ask for feedback‼️ During my advocacy workshop I stayed back and asked my tutor for feedback on my presentation even though it was a short submission and she said she would mark me competent and that was a confidence boost for me! 💫 I definitely did my best to prepare for the exam but believe me when you start your submissions you feel the adrenaline and determination to win for your client even if it's a fake one😄 Let's hope my result is as good as my mood after the exam!! 📑 To anyone who is taking the advocacy now or soon good luck you've got this🙌🏻 . . #law#exam#lawstudent#ulaw#advocacy#examseason#study#studygram#lawblog#lawschool#futurelawyer#lawyersofinstagram #instadaily#motivation
