The photo I sent to Scarlett after I found out the concert was sold out and burst into tears

John Mayer Day

  So, on 11th May 2017, I saw John Mayer in concert at The O2 in London. I wanted to write a blog post about it the next day, and here’s what I came up with:   As you may have read in Scarlett’s latest blog, we went to London to see John Mayer in […]

Learn from me and don’t take the easy way out

  As many of my friends are aware, I ‘have a degree in Music’ from the Canadian university I attended before coming to Leicester. We’ll get to that.   In law, we get the rare treat of being able to selectively revise for our exams. Naturally, it’s not recommended, but it’s the most strategic way […]

Take everything you see with a grain of salt

  In the tumultuous time that is revision and exams (1 down, 2 to go!!), I was having a spontaneous late-night chat with my housemate the other night. We chatted about various things, but the last thing she said really stuck with me. She told me that, in reading through my blog posts, she felt […]

Don’t give up!

  It’s the last week of revision, before exams start, so everyone is in panic mode. But, have no fear – I’m here to help! Thought of the day: take good care of yourself and revision will fall into place. All you have to do is suffer through these next few weeks, and then summer officially […]

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 […]

So…I didn’t get Chairperson!

  After a tough Hustings and a week and a bit of campaigning for the new Law Society elected committee positions, on 17th March 2017, we found out the results. I skimmed through the post on Facebook with eager/nervous anticipation. My thought process was as follows (or something like it):   Okay, here we go. […]

Revision tips, Pt. II

  This is part 2 of Mama Lucie’s revision tips! Let’s just get on with it!   IN THE EXAM I listen to music on my way to the exam and don’t chat to anyone before the exam, because when people cram right before going in, it terrifies me into thinking that I haven’t learned everything. […]

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

Revision tips, Pt. I

  It’s that time of year – it’s REVISION TIME. Cue the apocalyptic scenery and music. In the midst of all the chaos, I wanted to give you some insight on how I study for my exams. Don’t forget to check out the examples/photos I’ve posted at the end of this blog post!   Revising content […]

Challenge accepted!

  Back in November, I wrote a blog post about being overwhelmed by uni. 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 […]

Law Society campaign week!

  This week is all about campaigning and selling myself! I’m running to be Chairperson of the Law Society next year so hopefully in a few months, I’ll be taking over from Scarlett. She’s done an incredible job this year and has successfully rebuilt the Law Society from the ground up. We’ve been nominated for […]
