A non-drinker in a drinking world

  Before I came to England, I knew the drinking culture was going to be a big thing. When I actually got to England, I realised drinking culture was a big thing. I was shocked at how much people were drinking, and I thought to myself, ‘well, they say if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em’… and […]

Things I like to do in Leicester

  As a student, it’s extremely important to plan to relax and spend time with people. It’s easy to isolate yourself so you can get things done, and as productive as that may be academically, that doesn’t do well for your personal wellbeing. So, here are some things I like to do to relax!   […]

Uni is what you make of it

  Recently, I was working an Open Day as a Law School Student Ambassador and a parent asked me what kinds of networking opportunities there are available for law students. I rattled off my usual list: Law Society competitions and moot winners receive work experiences or offers to shadow lawyers/judges, barristers and solicitors come in […]

Law Ball: A magical night

Law Ball: A magical night

  So, every year, the biggest night to look forward to is the Law Ball – it’s the biggest social event of the year for both law students and law academics alike. Each year is a different theme, which is purely for the entertainment and decor (no fancy dress allowed!). In my first year, it […]

Friendships at university

  University is a strange time because we live in such a bubble. It’s a strange isolation from the real world that will never be replicated at any other time in your life. Time seems to go at a different speed to the rest of the world – slow and quick all at the same […]

Leicester Hot Spot: Madison’s

Leicester Hot Spot: Madison’s

  So, last time I did a ‘Hot Spot’, I wrote about another coffee shop. I’ve realised that a lot of my time is spent in coffee shops, and I’m this close to doing a research-based Master’s to discover what about coffee shops is so appealing on every level for me.   But anyway, today’s spotlight […]

What’s stopping me from pursuing what I want to do?

  This is a question that weighs me down, and has for a while. If you’ve been following my blogs, you’ll know that I’ve written many a blog post on my career path in trying to figure out what it is what I want to do. Over the summer, I’ve had chats with a few […]

Actus reus of technical assault

Case law vs statute law

  Before I begin the actual blog post: I’ve posted some of my old notes from first and second year, which you can find at the bottom of the page. But, if you’re curious as to what I have to say about the difference between case law and statute law and what that has to […]

My friend and I got matching smoothie bowls, which were so delicious. She had a turmeric latte (the cat) and I had a rose latte, which sounds weird but is so lovely.

Leicester Hot Spot: Saints of Mokha

  I’m a huge fan of coffee shops. I can study in one for hours just because I love the ambiance and the smell of coffee. My favourite one is called 200 Degrees, but today’s spotlight falls on another one that I went to a few days before I left Leicester for Christmas holiday.   […]

My November went extremely downhill…

  Back in November of second year, I wrote a blog post about being overwhelmed by deadlines and I dubbed it ‘Novdeadber’ because that’s what it feels like. Luckily, in Law, we don’t have midterms or tests during term. Instead, we’ve got competitions, moots, and non-assessed essays, and application deadlines for training contracts/pupillages, vacation schemes, Open […]
