It’s that time of the year again

It’s that time of the year again

  Everything is so hectic right now with essay deadlines just around the corner and exams in mid-May.   A small insight into exam life at Leicester:   Okay. So… I was going to write about how annoyingly packed the library is and how important snacks are, but no one wants to hear about that. […]

Being mindful in how we use language

  Today’s blog post is simultaneously a PSA and a personal vendetta against people who don’t use Oxford commas. Just kidding!   This week, I wanted to write about our use of language. I never truly understood just how much of an impact words can have, written or spoken, until I started studying law. I suddenly found myself […]

Don’t be a Lame Duck

Don’t be a Lame Duck

  A common misconception is that you have to know someone for a really long time for them to become really close to you.   It’s true, when you go through a lot with someone you can grow closer. You learn more about them because you’re faced with so many different situations. In university you […]

So…I didn’t get Chairperson!

  I wasn’t really sure about posting this blog post, because of how personal it is, but here I go!   On 17th March 2017, we found out about the Law Society election results. I skimmed through the post on Facebook with eager/nervous anticipation; I had no idea who was going to end up being […]

Revision tips, Pt. I

This is my case law chart. I made one for each topic that I revised.

  It’s that time of year – it’s REVISION TIME. In the midst of all the chaos, I wanted to give you some insight on how I study for my exams.   It’s completely okay that you’re not revising and you are, in fact, still learning. It’s okay that you haven’t caught up with all your lectures. […]

Challenge accepted!

  Back in November, I wrote a post about being overwhelmed. Well, guess what? It’s that time of year again! It’s nearing the end of term, and not only are deadlines being thrown at you, but big events are happening: namely, the Law Review Launch Event and mooting finals. On top of that, revision period and exams […]
