We've got a crack team of bloggers reporting back from the front line of legal study and work. You'll hear straight from the horses' mouths how they juggle their studies, job search, work, finances and social life.

Hello, I’m Demi, or alternatively known as 'The Abled Lawyer' on Instagram. I am currently studying the LPC/LLM part-time at BPP University, Birmingham. I work as a diversity assistant at Freeths LLP. I am also a committee member of the Lawyers with Disabilities Division of The Law Society of England and Wales in my spare time. By documenting my journey as a disabled student, this blog aims to raise awareness of disabilities in the legal profession and give practical advice to disabled aspiring solicitors, which I wish I had received at the beginning of my career. Finally, I have interests in employment law and technology law, so my blogs may also touch upon these subjects too. Enjoy!
Hi! I’m Harriet, an international relations graduate from the University of Birmingham and a part-time PGDL student at BPP Bristol. By documenting my journey as an LGBT aspiring solicitor, this blog aims to empower readers to stay true to their authentic selves and harness their USPs in pursuit of their professional goals. Beyond all things legal, I hope to share my interests in the energy sector, emerging technology and volunteering.
Hi! I'm Bethany, a current LPC student and future trainee solicitor at Addleshaw Goddard. Through this blog, I hope to share my experiences and give a voice to those students wanting to work outside of London (it isn't always for everyone, you know!). You can find out more about me, my writing and my legal journey through Instagram or Twitter (@bethanyblaw).
I’m Chantal and I am currently an undergraduate at the University of Leicester studying English and History, entering the final year of my degree! I am beginning my applications to undertake the GDL after graduating and working towards gaining a training contract in the near future. I am keen to help other non-law students and hope that I can achieve this by sharing my experience whilst navigating the legal world without a law degree!
