Sleigh bells ring…

… are you listening? With just over a week to go, we know it's all about the festivities and rampant consumerism. To fully immerse ourselves in the holiday spirit, LC.N Weekly will be taking a short break, returning on 6 January 2015. Before you head off, stuff your stocking full of our festive delights and adorn your Xmas tree of knowledge with our baubles of insight, including tips from the Oracle on how to make the most of the holidays in your quest to become a lawyer, a Xmas dinner-shaped LC.N Says and the funniest (only?) feature on law fair freebies you'll read this year. Comedy reindeer antlers aloft? Then settle in for some yuletide teachings. Happy holidays, one and all!
