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 […]

Sunshine, Rainbows and Everything Wonderful

Sunshine, Rainbows and Everything Wonderful

  University is stressful – especially at this time of year with assessed essays and exams looming.   What annoys me to no end is everyone moaning, comparing knowledge for no reason other than to make themselves feel better – leaving others feeling worse, and people sharing an endless supply of dismal posts about not doing […]

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. 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 […]

Three-year or two-year program?

  As you may or may not have noticed, there are a lot of Canadians at Leicester (including me!). A large majority of us come here to study law and that’s thanks to Ben Reed, the Student Recruitment Administrator, and Gemma Turton, the Deputy Undergraduate Admissions Tutor in Law, who travel around Canadian universities speaking about Leicester Law. Their goal is to recruit […]

Let’s talk about anxiety

  Now that term one of this year is over, I’ve been reflecting on this past term and I can confidently say that it has been one of the hardest few months of my life (side note: this is my fifth year of uni, so that’s saying something! Yeah, yeah, I know I’m old, blah blah blah). […]

Learning to Fail

Learning to Fail

  This week I thought I would share with you a very significant life lesson learned in my law degree at Leicester.   Now one thing any student is scared of is that dreaded word… failure.   One thing I have come to realise, though, is that actually failure is a good thing. Strange concept, […]

How I stay organised and manage my time

  Does anyone else have that feeling that they’ve already been in Leicester for ages even though it’s only been one week? I just got here last Sunday (25th September), and I’m writing this on Sunday (2nd October), and so many things have happened this week that I feel like I’ve already been here for weeks! And how is […]

The Ultimate Checklist

  So, term starts a few days from today and at this point, you’re probably thinking, “Well, this is it, there’s no turning back because I’m about to be launched into the sky for a few hours and when my feet are back on the ground, I’ll be on a different continent.”   “UNLESS they […]
