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

Good afternoon βœ¨πŸ’“ . Weeew, what a week. Well, what a week I’ve had away from this account haha! . Had some serious downs this week, a little bit of insta reality incoming today... I had a session last week that left me in (basically) tears, I felt that I was terrible at everything law-related and that taking the bar was a mistake, and I specifically remember wondering if I had wasted the last 6 years studying law. . I think it’s important to be aware, before studying law, that not every day will be a good day. In fact, I would say a slight minority of the total days, are good days. Law is something which we often get wrong at first, and have to be corrected and critiqued on before we get ahold of it. It’s hard, as usually people who go to law school are used to being above-average in some way, to finally get to law school, and suddenly you are not that great - especially compared to your peers. After having my (slight) breakdown, I did some research into law and mental health - namely, whether being a lawyer or a law student has any effect on mental health. And wow, what I found was incredibly worrying... so I think that will probably be my next post πŸ™ . I’m okay now, picked myself up and have been focusing on work, even with mental health issues and personal life problems coming to a head. I have a love-hate relationship with law, because while it has sometimes been the absolute bane of my life, it’s also always there, emotionless, a crutch to focus on while everything else in my head is falling apart πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Happy Tuesday 🀷🏼 β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ . . . . . . . . . #law #lawstudent #lawyer #barrister #solicitor #lpc #btc #bar #crime #criminal #civil #exam #study #student #london #legal #suits #formal #revise #studying #uni #lawschool #university #bpp #ulaw #paralegal #clerk #parliament #corona #mentalhealth
