Hello! I’m currently studying at University of Sheffield, although I have also studied law with the Open University so I will be imparting some distance learning insight too. I’m figuring out university as a mature student and will be sharing some of my experiences juggling life, work and education.
January can be a slow month; it’s cold, it’s dark and some of us have exams, coursework and applications to worry about. This article explores what you can do to make the most of the new year and accelerate your legal career.
On 30 November 2018 I was at the beautiful County Hall in London, attending the highlight of the LawCareers bloggers calendar, LawCareersNetLIVE.
I recently volunteered at Legal Technology North in Sheffield. It was the first conference of its kind in the north and brought together students, lawyers and tech specialists for an interesting and engaging day focusing on legal technologies.
Law students know how important work experience is, but sometimes it seems impossible to get. Speculative applications can be a good way to get some experience under your belt and bolster your CV for the next vacation scheme application cycle.
If you've never had a LinkedIn profile at any point in your legal journey, then now's the time to get online and make one. At a busy conference or law fair, it can be difficult to get contact details from everyone you speak to; however, you can almost always find them on LinkedIn afterwards.
