Green Army 2016 | Charity Bike Ride Successfully Completed

So on Saturday evening the Green Army 2016 team successfully completed their bike ride raising money for Blood Wise UK when they arrived at the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

4 days of intense cycling, tired legs, long distances, mountains and climbs that the Tour De France teams will be cycling in July and a whole lot of laughs later they finished and I was able to go and meet them as I was still in Barcelona.

I can’t wait to hear more stories, of the highs, lows and what they got up to!  I know that they all work hard to support each other on these rides, and it isn’t a competition, it is all about ensuring the whole team successfully completes the challenge and raises as much money as they can for charity.

My conference finished on Friday and I was invited to join the Green Army team and the other participants of the Discover Adventure bike ride for dinner on the Saturday.

Luckily the Green Army team shared lots of photos on their twitter feed during the course of the bike ride and you can check them out here – whilst you are there please give them a follow!

Before they went out, I did ask my dad to let the person that manages the website know to put a twitter feed on the site – so that people that didn’t have twitter could still see the photos!  Do check the photos out, they even include photos of the beautiful scenery, team photos, and even a quick sit on a snowmobile (yes, they were that high in the mountains!).

Their JustGiving page is still open and I would be very grateful if you could donate to Bloodwise – no matter how big or small the amount! You can donate by clicking here.

Uniqlo | Women Ultra Light Down Jacket

So you may all be wondering why I am sharing with you a link to a jacket, but a lot of you have asked me where my jacket was from that I took to San Francisco last summer… and it was from Uniqlo.  You can check it out here.

I was looking for a small jacket that would fold away nicely in my bag in case it was slightly chillier in San Francisco but I didn’t want a bulky coat as I was heading to Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas after!  As it turns out this jacket is amazing, I have the blue one, and it was great when on the boat trips in San Francisco and visiting Alcatraz!

San Francisco wasn’t overly cold, and I found it to be quite sunny and warm but it was windy at times and a coat was definitely needed.

This coat was recommended to me by Monica from The Travel Hack and it was definitely a great buy! I even wear it in London and it has also become a staple for being left in the car for spring/summer/autumn times!  It is perfect for city breaks too!

It keeps you nice and warm and it has a high neck – and it folds away nicely! Plus it looks good with jeans and is a great extra layer for a plane ride!  Here are a couple of photos of it:

I highly recommend it!

Law Student Survey

So it seems from the messages that I receive from law students all over the UK (and abroad) that there is not enough engagement with tutors or on their VLE’s in terms of skills, resources, news, updates etc. They even say that not enough happens on social media!

So I created a very quick survey – which will take you minutes to complete – and if you are a Law Student in the UK please complete it by clicking here.  If you could share it with your friends that would be great too!

Prior to creating this form I was already writing lots of posts on student engagement, and I try (and have tried the last 5 years) to share with you some information on legal events, current news, skills and tips etc.

I also have plans to create something quite exciting and develop Lawyer In The Making for you – so watch this space!

Thank you in advance!

I am a sponsor for the Green Army ride 2016!

Yes that’s right.. Lawyer In The Making is properly sponsoring the ride, and that’s not just me putting money onto the just giving site for my dad and the rest of his teammates.

My blog is actually acting as a proper sponsor for them, and in return I get a logo on their 2016 shirt which is rather exciting, and I know my logo will be amongst many other companies who are doing the same.

The Green Army have been undertaking charity cycle rides for a number of years now, and they really do raise a considerable amount of money to help the charity Blood Wise UK and I am so pleased to be able to sponsor them.

If you would like to sponsor them please head over to their Just Giving site https://www.justgiving.com/greenarmy2016 – any amount of money, no matter how big or small really does make a huge difference.

I will be sharing a photo of their team shirt shortly – so keep an eye out for that!

Do follow the team on Twitter @greenarmy2015 as they will be sharing lots of updates during the challenging cycle ride at the end of the month!
