Happy New Year!

Happy New year

Not only do I want to wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2017, I want to say a huge thank you for your continued support with Lawyer In The Making.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

As of today I have been running Lawyer In The Making full time for a year now.  2016 saw me attend some superb conferences, visit some amazing places and meet so many of you.

Time has also been spent running training sessions for lawyers around the world, writing content for companies and also being a ghost writer. I have helped people in the legal profession with LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogging, Website Content and much more.

2016 was a year of firsts for me, from running a company to speaking at conferences.

A huge 2016 highlight for me included doing what I love and that is visiting law students at law school. Whether I have been running training sessions, speaking at events or just meeting you! I will continue to do so in 2017.

2017 Lawyer int the making plans

I have a lot planned for 2017, including a new website layout. I will be sharing more information regarding various Lawyer In The Making plans over the coming weeks.

Content wise, the same types of blog posts will still be here, that is one thing that isn’t changing.

I will be producing more Youtube videos in 2017. After filming my Q&A video back in 2015, and sharing it with you at the start of 2016, I received a great response. So many of you asked for more videos to compliment blog posts, and I said I would try it for a while.

I have been producing more and more videos as the months have gone on, and that will continue into 2017. So make sure that you hit the subscribe button on Youtube so that you never miss a video.

2017 personal plans

For someone that is quite shy, I very publicly share information about my studies and career online.  I don’t mind doing so, because I think it helps the relationship I have with all of you.  So 2017 could be an extremely exciting year for me personally. If everything goes to plan, 2017 is the year I complete the BPTC and get Called to the Bar.

How can you stay up to date?

Whether you are looking for legal news, study tips, or just want to be nosey about my career stay up to date on all the blog posts I share by subscribing to my weekly newsletter (I promise not to spam your inbox).

Have a wonderful 2017!

It’s Christmas Day!

Christmas Day

Christmas Day is here again. Is it just me, or has this year flown by?

I know that you will all be very busy right now with family and friends enjoying Christmas Day. So this post is a quick one just to wish you a wonderful Christmas break.

Lawyer In The Making | Christmas Card

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!

Lawyer In The Making is heading to Hong Kong

If you follow me on twitter or have liked my Facebook Page, then you will have just seen that I have announced that I have rebooked my trip to Hong Kong!

I was meant to go earlier in the year, but was unable to do so, so I am very excited to have managed to squeeze in a quick trip for work before 2016 is out.

Why Hong kong?

I have been approached by a few people to pop out and chat about work, plus as you know I am such a law geek, so I plan to visit some Universities and courts, and also attend some legal events (as well as sight see, and admire the beautiful Hong Kong Skyline *photo was taken from google*)

Hong Kong

I can’t share too much about the work I may or may not be doing right now but what I can tell you is that I will be visiting the Hong Kong Bar Association and the Hong Kong Law Society whilst I am there.  There will be diary entry posts when I am in Hong Kong and of course I will be tweeting and sharing photos on Facebook and Instagram too.  So if you aren’t following me on these platforms now is the time to do so.

I will also be visiting a couple of courts (yes I am that much of a law geek), and will definitely be sitting in on 2 sessions at the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal, and I am fortunate that there is a criminal and civil procedure matter happening whilst I am over there.  I am also looking forward to visiting the High Court and the Competition Tribunal.

I am really excited to be heading to Hong Kong and to be going for work stills feels extremely surreal.  This year has felt like I have taken Lawyer In The Making and my digital marketing consultancy business on tour!

Thank you for your continued support of my blog, encouraging law students and prospective students on pursuing a legal career, and supporting lawyers with their digital marketing would never have happened if it wasn’t for your support!

Have you been to Hong Kong? Do you work or study there? Maybe you have some sight seeing recommendations? Let me know!

Sourced Box : Referral Code

So if you have checked out my Snapchat or Instagram recently you will know that I purchased a SourcedBox.  I do love healthy food and also chocolate etc.  I thought by purchasing a SourcedBox I would be able to find some other healthy snacks to try.   Get the referral link to receive 15% off your first order below.

I had read some great reviews on SourcedBox so thought I would give it a go, you can either purchase a one-off month, or have a subscription.  You can cancel the subscription at any time, so long as you do it before the next shipment date as per the website terms.

This isn’t a sponsored post, just to make that clear.  I thought I would just share the referral code with you, incase you wanted to check them out.  They would make a great addition to your month, with new snacks.  Great for students, lawyers, legal professionals, academics etc.

SourcedBox July 2016

SourcedBox July 2016

Check out the healthy snacks in #SourcedBox & get 15% off of your first box via my referral link!

I really enjoyed the products that arrived, especially as I was worried I wouldn’t try half of it, but I seemed to have a lucky hit with the July box.  There was only one thing that I won’t be trying and that was the Beetroot and Horseradish crisp things.

Make sure you check out SourcedBox if it is the sort of thing you would like to try.

Rather than explain and list all of the prices and subscriptions I thought I would share a graphic from their website.
