Hi I'm Phil, otherwise known as The Neurodivergent Lawyer. I am an aspiring lawyer qualifying via CILEX, and an autism and neurodiversity advocate. I'll be sharing my experiences of life as a paralegal and qualifying via an alternative route to the training contract, things that I think are worth knowing at the junior stage, as well as promoting greater acceptance, understanding, empowerment and inclusion of autistic and neurodivergent lawyers at all career stages. I hope that whoever you are you can take something away from my blogs here!
Hi everyone! My name is Savannah and I’m an aspiring solicitor. I’m currently a second-year university student at the University of Manchester. I’ve become a LCN blogger to share my legal journey and experiences so far, in hopes to be able to help those going down a similar career path. I hope you find my blogs of use, and if you do, please do check out my legal instagram too: (@themanchesterlawstudent).
My name is Marie, I am an international student in the second year of my law degree at UCL, and I hope to become a solicitor! In my blog, I will be giving you breakdowns of general commercial law concepts, advice, and as someone who enjoys literature, I will discuss law-related novels!
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 Syndy, an international first-year law student studying at the University of Bristol.

Looking forward to receiving your opinions on my blogs!
