#AskLITM is back!

So today on twitter I am going to be answering some frequently asked questions!



I try and do this a couple of times a year, as a lot of you have similar questions regarding studying law, work experience, advocacy and lots more topics.

I do always respond individually to emails, tweets and DMs.  So if you have a question then drop me a line and I can try and help as best I can.

I will be using the hashtag #AskLITM just for ease o you can go back and find the questions and answers.

Have a brilliant Wednesday afternoon!

For those of you that don’t already follow me on Twitter, then you can find me by clicking @lawyer_inmaking.

Has Montgomery Administered the Last Rites to Therapeutic Privilege?

Has Montgomery Administered the Last Rites to Therapeutic Privilege? A Diagnosis and a Prognosis

You might be wondering why I have shared this rather lengthy title with you, and you also might be thinking that it looks very much like a lecture title, that is because it is!

The UCL run  amazing law events open to the public, and these include a full lecture and seminar programme, and I regularly attend them when  I can.

When I saw this particular topic shared back in November I knew I had to book on (plus they are all free).

This is a particular area of law I am interested in and if you would like more information you can check out the website with all the relevant info here.   This event is on Thursday 19th January 2017, it starts at 6pm and is scheduled to end at 7pm.  You can book online.

This particular session is part of UCL Law’s “Current Legal Problems” series and they have some brilisnt topics coming up.   The Rt. Honorable Baroness Hale is running a session in February.  For a full list of topics that are being covered in this series, click here.

I will be live tweeting the event on Thursday (subject to phone signal/wifi) so keep an eye out for that!

It’s Gateway Day!

If you have been on twitter the last few days you will have seen so many tweets from current and prospective BPTC students, as well as LLB students, GDL students and those who have been already called – waiting for the Pupillage Gateway to open.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Pupillage Gateway it is a platform that you use to apply for some of your Pupillage choices/applications.

(It is a bit like UCAS but for aspiring barristers, however quite a lot more onerous!).

Not every chambers uses the Gateway and you can only apply for 12 on the Gateway, and as many outside of the Gateway as you want.

Some chambers that are out of the Gateway have already had their deadlines for 2018 Pupillage (and these deadlines were as early as September/October 2016).

There are some standard questions which populate themselves (name, address, education etc.) but every Chambers adds their own questions.  Don’t forget that you can always go on and generate the answers to the standard (non-chamber specific questions) well in advance of the application window opening!

Some are as you would expect, Why this area of law? Why this Chambers? but some are slightly more unusual. Describe certain words, choose an area of law you would change and why etc.

The Bar Council has put together a guide on how to use it, which you can check out here.

Good luck to everyone applying!

SourcedBox | January 2017

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (@rebeccaalice91) you will know just how much I love receiving my SourcedBox box each month.



What is sourcedbox?

SourcedBox is a subscription box jam packed full of healthy food and snacks.  A complete mix of sweet and savoury, tea bags, breakfasts, supplements etc.

Every month is different and if you like healthy snacks then this is a great way to try new brands, and if you currently don’t eat so healthily then maybe this is a good way to get started.

why do i love receiving my sourcedbox each month?

It’s really nice to receive something in the post that you look forward to receiving.  It’s great to try new products and there is always something I like or look forward to trying.  Obviously there are some things I don’t like and that is to be expected, but normally there is someone I can pass the product on to.

You can buy a one-off or you can subscribe to receive a box each month, and if you click this link you can receive 15% your first product.

Honestly I wouldn’t share anything I didn’t either purchase or recommend myself as you know, and I really do like receiving the SourcedBox every month.

Do check it out their website if you are interested, but remember to use the link above if you want to receive 15% off.
