Who are Law Mind Maps?

Law Mind Maps produce Mind Maps which cover the 7 core subjects on the LLB/GDL.  Students can also pick up Mind Maps for the core subjects on the LPC and the BPTC.  The company is based in London and provide Mind Maps to students all over England and Wales.

They believe that Mind Maps aren’t just for revising and exams but perfect to help you study throughout your course.  I know from Instagram that lots of you create your own mind maps, so these would be a great addition to your learning!

Lawyer In The Making | My 2017 Mission

my 2017 mission

There are a lot of exciting plans and goals for 2017 including a new website design later this year.

However, the one that I am so excited to kick start is helping law schools produce more online content!

law schools let’s do this

So if you are a law school then 2017 is the year that it is time to make better use of that blog or news page on your website.  Not only is it a great marketing platform for prospective students but it is also a great way to create an online ‘digital’ time capsule for some of the events you have put on, student experiences etc.

Creating content really doesn’t have to be time consuming and I want to help you and your law students!

You have a bank of academics and students who could easily write some blog or news posts for your website, so why aren’t you?

I am looking forward to working with as many law schools as I can this year, and globally!

So I am here to help you, and below are just a few of the ways I will be helping:

  • sharing blogging tips
  • uploading videos
  • running law school training sessions
  • helping you create schedules
  • showing you that it really doesn’t have to be time consuming
  • showing you how to get your students writing

I can’t wait to see what we can all achieve in 2017!

So are you in?

I will be sharing blog posts and videos with blogging tips for all of you. So make sure you subscribe to my weekly newsletter here, and my Youtube channel here. That way you won’t miss a post or video.

YouTube Video | How to follow up with people from events

I recently filmed a video with some top tips on how to follow up with people that you meet at legal events.

Maybe they gave you a business card and you just want to ask them some questions. Perhaps they asked you to contact them regarding work experience or job opportunities.  Maybe they asked for you to keep them in the loop about your career.  Whatever the reason this video contains some basic tips to help you reach out to them.

Follow up

3 quick ways to assist you with following up with people after an event.

  1. Jot down some notes on their business card or a notebook. Note down who they were and most importantly WHY you need to contact them (if there was a reason of course).  For example, if you need to send them your CV to look over make sure you write that down and you do it.
  2. Don’t be afraid to remind people (politely) where you met them. For example, it was really great to sit next to you at X.
  3. Spelling and grammar is important. Misspelling someone’s name is poor form, especially when you have it on a business card in front of you.

I hope you find it useful and if you did, please head on over and subscribe to my YouTube channel here.  I am uploading weekly videos and plan to create even more content this year for you on YouTube.

wishing you all a wonderful Christmas

So Lawyer In The Making has its first ever company Christmas Card and some went in the post last week.  I had the pleasure of playing Santa and hand delivering them to a few people in London.  I dropped a card into to a few clients, law firms, barristers, chambers and organisations.  Sadly I couldn’t send one to everyone I know, but I wish I could.

A special Christmas email went out this morning, so subscribers to my weekly newsletter have a Christmassy email in their inbox!

If you don’t subscribe to my email, feel free to make my Christmas by subscribing here.

Have a brilliant Christmas!

Library Skills – essential for law students for studying, coursework and future legal careers!

Background

So you may remember that earlier this year I mentioned that I was writing a series of blog posts for Thomson Reuters, if not have a quick read of the blog post here.

LIBRARY skills

I really enjoyed writing this blog post for Thomson Reuters, as using a law library (whether online or the physical books) is such an important skill for law students.

The librarians are able to help you get to grips with finding journal articles online, or important information from the physical Law Reports or textbooks.

Some of the questions I cover include:

  • Where to start if you haven’t used your law library yet
  • Who you can get help from
  • Some online training to help improve your skills!
