Get to know me!

Whilst I share a lot of information about what I am up to in my legal career and studies online, my personal/private life I do tend to keep private, I like it that way.  However, one of the things I want my blog to be is personal but professional.  with that in mind I thought you should get

So here is an opportunity to get to know me a little better!

  1. My name is Rebecca.  No one really shortens it, I think I always wanted it to be Rebecca at school, as I knew I wanted to do it law.  Well I say no one really shortens it, that’s true, apart from my little sisters.  Being the oldest, when they both came along they struggled to say Rebecca, so they tend to call me Bec.
  2. I have grown up in London.  I feel so lucky to have grown up in a city that I want to work in.  I love London, and it is every aspiring lawyers dream, so I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else.  I do also love the fact that I am surrounded by amazing cities, plus the countryside and seaside.
  3.  I am ridiculously shy.  No one ever believes me, but I am.  I have always been shy and I am lucky that I know a few ways to hide the nerves when speaking at events or out and about.
  4.  I love holidays.  Ideally the kind where you just lounge around in the sun for days, but I’m not adverse to a city break either.
  5. Costa Hot Chocolate with marshmallows is the one.  If you follow me on my social media platforms you will know it is my go to drink.
  6. My closest friends are all guys. I don’t know why, it just happened that way.  There are a handful of them that I would be lost without.  Obviously, I have some girls that I am friends with as well!
  7. I have a 12 year age gap between my youngest sister and I. I was in Year 7 when she born, and I remember the day as if it was yesterday.  Now she is taller than me, far more head strong than I ever was at her age and it is a constant reminder of how much the world has changed since I was her age.
  8. When I was born there were 5 generations.  I love looking at a picture we have of my Great-Great Grandad, my Great-Granny, my Grandad, my Mum and then me as a tiny baby!
  9. I am actually brown belt in karate.  When I was younger I would go along to classes twice a week, and I would hate the thought of going, but love it once I was there (I am sure my parents hated me for this).  I gave it up when I started secondary school.
  10. My family have a house in Scotland, in the middle of nowhere, with hills and beaches nearby.  It is perfect, and the perfect escape from London.

So there you have it, 10 things you may or may not have known about me.

IBA Annual Bar Conference 2017

Annual Bar Conference

It’s time to start thinking about the Annual Bar Conference 2017. As you will have no doubt scene across all my platforms and blogs, last year I attended a lot of the IBA Conferences.  I also attended the IBA Annual Conference in Washington DC in September last year.

What is the Annual Bar Conference?

Every year the IBA (International Bar Association) run lots of conferences on different topics.  Once a year they run their huge annual conference, where 1000s of lawyers from around the world gather to discuss everything law related, and have some fun!

With over 200 sessions, an exhibition and more drinks receptions and parties than you can imagine.  It really is a great event. I found it a struggle working out what sessions I wanted to attend.  Not because there were a lack of interesting ones, but the ones I liked the sound of most were always on at similar times.

If you’d like to check out some of my thoughts on other IBA events I have attended, then read about my trip to The Hague last year.

When and where is the Conference taking place?

This year the Annual Bar Conference is taking place between the 8th and13th October, at the International Conference Centre.

The ICC is in Sydney , and you can check out the Sydney promo video here.  The IBA website page for the conference is also jam packed full of information surrounding the conference itself, but also visiting Sydney.  From hotels, to transport, to famous landmarks.  That’s not forgetting that the IBA and some of the committees do arrange some excursions during the conference.

So are you going to be attending? Let me know!
