A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | 24 Hour Discount Extended

You may have read my blog post yesterday or seen the email I sent out.  Due to time zone differences some of you that wanted the ebook couldn’t email me in time for the discount so I have made the decision to extend it, but not just for another 24 hours…

If you want a copy of my ebook for law students at the discounted rate of £7.99 instead of £12.99 then you have until 11:59pm GMT on Sunday 10th December 2017.  The instructions are still the same:

  1. Send an email to rebecca@lawyerinthemaking.co.uk with the subject “Ebook December Special Discount”.
  2. I will (within 48 hours of the discount ending) send you a Paypal link for £7.99
  3. Once payment has been received I will then send you across the epub file of my ebook within 48 hours.
  4. You then be able to read my ebook. Whether you choose to read it from cover to cover or more likely dipping in and out as and when you need help/support etc. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.

Thanks so much and please do share this post with your friends and fellow law students!

Things to remember

  1. If you don’t follow the above steps you won’t be eligible to receive the ebook at the discounted price. 
  2. It is my ebook and I have self-published it.  It is impossible to cover everything I would like to cover, especially in the first version.  I could have written so much more! So version 2 (which is being released towards the end of 2018) will cover some of the smaller ebook topics in more depth! 
  3. There is a small chapter targeted to law students in the UK (England and Wales) in terms of career paths and studying the LLB.  The rest of the ebook content is suited to law students all over the world! 
  4. The ebook is completely interactive, clickable links to resources, books, videos, blog posts and more.  
  5. The ebook will be sent as a download and therefore an epub version and should open on your phone/tablet/laptop as a download or in your ‘reader’ app, the epub version means you get to enjoy all the interactive features a little bit easier.  If you are unable to open the ebook, I can send over a PDF version.
  6. You can print the ebook, it is a big file though and you won’t have access to all of the interactive features. 
  7. The usual disclaimers apply to this ebook which can be found at the start of the ebook.
  8. This ebook is not be shared by you in any way.  Legal action can and may be taken against you if it is found that you are sharing the publication. 

A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | 24 Hour Discount

A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | 24 Hour Discount

A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | 24 Hour Discount.  In the spirit of Christmas and just because today is the 7th December, I thought I would run a 24 hour discount making the ebook £7.99 instead of £12.99.  There are set instructions on how to purchase the ebook at this reduced discount and you can find those instructions here.

The special offer closes at 11:59pm GMT on Thursday 7th December.  After that you can still purchase the ebook but at the price of £12.99 via the usual methods.

For those of you that haven’t heard about my ebook, here is a quick summary! 

As you will know I have created an ebook for law students.  The reason behind making creating the ebook instead of a paperback/hardback was so that it could be interactive.  I wanted to be able to link out to blog posts, videos,  legal websites, news resources, other law blogs etc.

Now I know that an ebook isn’t for everyone so you can print the ebook if you would prefer, it is over 180 pages though and very colourful.  You do of course then lose the interactive features.

What is in the ebook?

The ebook covers many topics from social media, advocacy, general study tips, work experience, CVs, Cover Letters, Interviews, recommended reading and much more.  This ebook can be read from cover to cover or alternatively you can just dip in and out at the sections most useful to you.

As always though, please remember that the lists and top tips aren’t exhaustive, and I and others have plenty more tips/recommendations for you, but it is impossible to share them all.  I also haven’t written absolutely everything I could have on each topic, if I had the book would never have been published and I would have written even more.  Stay tuned for future editions towards the end of 2018/2019 though.

I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I loved writing it!

So if you are considering purchasing my ebook, then why not grab it on the reduced price? Click here to find out how to get the discount!

A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | Sneak Peek

So I thought it would be a good idea to share with you a couple of pages from my ebook, A brief guide to being a law student.  That way you can get a flavour for the layout of the book and how I have set things out.

As you can see from the images below, I have covered various topics, and have tried to keep the information in short question and answer or top tips format.  Don’t worry there are some longer pages and paragraphs though.

I really wanted this ebook to be a guide, a place to turn to if you need some information or guidance on specific areas of being a law student, as opposed to pages and pages of long paragraphs.  Don’t get me wrong, I love all of those types of “how to be a law student” books, I just wanted to create something a little different!

You can also check out the contents page here for an overview of all of the topics covered in the ebook.  The section marked up General Law Student Tips, covers asking questions in class, whether to do a dissertation or not, how not to annoy your fellow law students etc.

p.s. for a short time only there is a discount on my ebook and you can get it for the price of £7.99 instead of £12.99.  To do so, click here and follow the instructions.  This special offer closes on Sunday 10th December at 11:59pm GMT.

A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | Contents

So over the last few months I have been sharing bits and pieces on my ebook, A brief guide to being a law student, and more importantly what topics it covers.

I thought it would be easier to just upload the Contents page as that should help some of you.  As I have mentioned previously, this ebook can be read from cover to cover but

At the start of the book I share 9 top tips to help you get in the lawyer mindset.

The Law School In The UK section looks at studying the LLB or GDL, and then post-graduate courses such as an LLM, PhD or even the BCL.  Whilst this might not be application to some of you (those that are abroad) you may still find snippets of it useful, especially if you are considering studying in the UK.  The same applies to the Career Routes section, this does follow more of a UK based career path in terms of law, but does cover topics such as “being a paralegal” etc.

A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | Contents

A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | Contents

The ebook can be purchased for £12.99 – and is applicable to students all over the world (there is only just a handful of references to those studying law in the UK, well specifically England and Wales) the rest is content beneficial to everyone.

As you will see I have tried to really help you when it comes to topics such as Advocacy, Work Experience, Social Media, CVs etc.

In the General Tips On Being A Law Student chapter, I talk about:

  • Why it is okay to ask for help?
  • Whether or not to do a dissertation?
  • How to not annoy your fellow class mates in lectures and tutorials/seminars?
  • and lots more.

I really hope you love reading this as much as I have enjoyed writing it!

25 Days Of Crime/Thriller/Psychological Suspense Writers

You all know that I love all things crime/psychological suspense related, so criminal dramas, documentaries, podcasts and books.  So when I decided to start interviewing some crime authors, I was rather excited.

There are however, hundreds and hundreds of authors I could feature and would love to feature, so it has been really hard picking just a handful to feature this time.  You have absolutely no idea how excited I am for this mini-series and because of how many authors there are that I would love to feature on my blog, I am already planning on extending into next year.  Maybe not everyday, but a couple a month!

In the run up to Christmas I thought I would interview some of the crime writers both here in the UK and abroad.  Some are long-standing authors, others are just about to be published – I wanted to understand more about why they write crime novels.

I also wanted to chat about their writing routines (as some of them still work full time jobs), their previous experiences (some have a background in the police or psychology), their love of crime, how much they research, where they get their inspiration from as well as being nosey and asking they who their favourite authors are.

I will also be sharing links to their books, which would make great Christmas presents or stocking fillers, even a secret santa present.  Books really do make great presents, not only do they give people the chance to relax, but they are a great way of escaping the day to day challenges and stresses we all face!

I can’t wait for you to check out this series, and hope you enjoy delving into the minds of some amazing authors in the run up to Christmas!

p.s. For ease I am going to be using the hashtag #25daysofcrime on Twitter as #25daysofcrimethrillersandpsychologicalsuspenseauthors is just a little bit too long!
