A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | 24 Hour Discount

A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | 24 Hour Discount

A Brief Guide To Being A Law Student | 24 Hour Discount.  In the spirit of Christmas and just because today is the 7th December, I thought I would run a 24 hour discount making the ebook £7.99 instead of £12.99.  There are set instructions on how to purchase the ebook at this reduced discount and you can find those instructions here.

The special offer closes at 11:59pm GMT on Thursday 7th December.  After that you can still purchase the ebook but at the price of £12.99 via the usual methods.

For those of you that haven’t heard about my ebook, here is a quick summary! 

As you will know I have created an ebook for law students.  The reason behind making creating the ebook instead of a paperback/hardback was so that it could be interactive.  I wanted to be able to link out to blog posts, videos,  legal websites, news resources, other law blogs etc.

Now I know that an ebook isn’t for everyone so you can print the ebook if you would prefer, it is over 180 pages though and very colourful.  You do of course then lose the interactive features.

What is in the ebook?

The ebook covers many topics from social media, advocacy, general study tips, work experience, CVs, Cover Letters, Interviews, recommended reading and much more.  This ebook can be read from cover to cover or alternatively you can just dip in and out at the sections most useful to you.

As always though, please remember that the lists and top tips aren’t exhaustive, and I and others have plenty more tips/recommendations for you, but it is impossible to share them all.  I also haven’t written absolutely everything I could have on each topic, if I had the book would never have been published and I would have written even more.  Stay tuned for future editions towards the end of 2018/2019 though.

I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I loved writing it!

So if you are considering purchasing my ebook, then why not grab it on the reduced price? Click here to find out how to get the discount!

P.S. please do share this ebook and the special offer with your friends

P.P.S. as a reminder this ebook isn’t just for students in the UK (studying law in England and Wales) it is for any law student all over the world, there is just the odd reference or section

Things to remember

  1. If you don’t follow the above steps you won’t be eligible to receive the ebook at the discounted price. 
  2. It is my ebook and I have self-published it.  It is impossible to cover everything I would like to cover, especially in the first version.  I could have written so much more! So version 2 (which is being released towards the end of 2018) will cover some of the smaller ebook topics in more depth! 
  3. There is a small chapter targeted to law students in the UK (England and Wales) in terms of career paths and studying the LLB.  The rest of the ebook content is suited to law students all over the world! 
  4. The ebook is completely interactive, clickable links to resources, books, videos, blog posts and more.  
  5. The ebook will be sent as a download and therefore an epub version and should open on your phone/tablet/laptop as a download or in your ‘reader’ app, the epub version means you get to enjoy all the interactive features a little bit easier.  If you are unable to open the ebook, I can send over a PDF version.
  6. You can print the ebook, it is a big file though and you won’t have access to all of the interactive features. 
  7. The usual disclaimers apply to this ebook which can be found at the start of the ebook.
  8. This ebook is not be shared by you in any way.  Legal action can and may be taken against you if it is found that you are sharing the publication. 

 

Facebook Live | Law Student Group

Facebook Live | Law Student Group

I jumped on Facebook Live to talk all about my new Law Student Group.

Have you read any of my recent email newsletters? Have you been on my Lawyer In The Making Facebook page recently? Then you will have definitely seen me talk about the free Facebook Group I have created for law students.

Facebook Live | Law Student Group

Law Student Group

Yesterday went live on Facebook quickly on the Lawyer In The Making page to talk a bit more about the group.  The video included useful information regarding who the group is for.  As well as how to get involved and also what you can expect from the group.

The group isn’t just for me to share content and start discussions (though I will be doing that a lot).  It is a space for everyone to engage with other students.  Law Students from all over the world, studying different legal topics and areas and living in countries where laws are different.

Where can I watch the Facebook Live?

Check out the video here.

I will also be going ‘live’ a lot in this group.  Covering topics such as CVs and Cover Letters through to study tips, how to get work experience, what you should be doing whilst studying and lots more.

Don’t forget to request to join the Facebook group, plus the link is in the comments section of the video.

I am really excited to grow the Law Student Group and create a platform where we can share, discuss,  ask questions and support one another.

How can you help me grow the Law Student Group?

Please do share this post with your fellow law students and also tag them in the comments on the video above so that they like the Lawyer In The Making Facebook Page (and don’t forget to join the Law Student Group).

Excited to have you be part of the Law Student Group and keen to get to know you better!

YouTube | Where have I been?

Where have I been?

So, where have I been? Here, there and everywhere it feels like.  But, I’m not talking about destinations in this post, I have been so quiet over on YouTube and I wanted to let you know that’s all about to change.

I filmed this quick video to explain where I have been, and what you can expect going forward!

What can you expect on my Lawyer In The Making YouTube channel?

If you watch my video you will see that I do want to keep the content tailored to both audiences.  So content for law students, but also content for lawyers and those working in the legal profession.  I am hoping that some videos will sit nicely between the two, but I am also very aware that not all the content will do that.

What can you do?

So of course I would love it if you subscribe to my YouTube channel, it just means that you will never miss a video!  You can subscribe by going onto my YouTube and hitting the subscribe button.  Equally, likes and comments are always appreciated on my videos.  Plus if you like what you see on my YouTube channel, then share a link from it to social media or with people you think will like it.

More important than that though, I would love to know what you want me to film and share.  I have a big list of topics and things I want to talk about and share, and this list I have generated myself and from conversations an discussions with people in person and online – but, I want to know what you want!

So make sure that you send me messages on social media, that you comment on my videos or that you email me with what you want.

I want to be producing content that is of interest to you, but also a benefit – so what do you want to see or learn about?

5 Must Read Books For Law Students

I have lost track of how many times I have been asked “What are the ‘5 must read books for law students’?”

5 Must Read Books For Law Students

5 Must Read Books For Law Students

I have written blog posts with lists of books I recommend for lawyers and law students, I have mentioned them in videos, on my social media and also on email/face to face.

I am a massive law geek (we all know that!) and I do genuinely have an ever-growing law library at home.

So whilst I already have content on my blog covering ‘must read books’ and I recently did a twitter series containing a few of my favourites, here are 5 I want to share with you today!

I just shared the 5 books on my Facebook page, ‘Lawyer In The Making‘ so head on over there now if you want to see the list quickly! Check out the post containing the links here.

5 Must Read Books For Law Students 

Now don’t get me wrong, there are so so many books I could have listed today! Picking just five is not easy. So expect a few more posts like this.  I might turn it into a little series, a bit like my monthly twitter “who to follow” posts!

The 5 Must Read Books For Law Students  I am sharing today are: 

* Glanville Williams – Learning The Law http://amzn.to/2pOFFnc

Rising Star Law Award | Shortlisted

So I have been shortlisted for a Rising Star Law Award. Whilst I am sure I won’t win, I would love your vote. If you just want to vote then click here, select “law” in the drop down and then my name, Rebecca Morgan.

Rising Star Law Award

The Rising Star Awards (something I had not really heard about before) acknowledge people who they deem are doing amazing things in their sector.  I am named alongside some remarkable women in the legal sector (which is an honour in itself).  Please check out everyone that has been nominated in the legal shortlist here.

Sponsoring the law award is Reed Smith LLP, and it is in memory of the remarkable Lynne Freeman.

I still can’t quite believe it. Not only have I been nominated by someone, but I have been shortlisted by a panel of judges.

The process of the Rising Star Law Award

So as mentioned above, I had never heard of the Rising Star Awards.  I had however heard of We Are The City and the work that they do.

Quite few months ago I received an email from We Are The City/Rising Star saying someone had nominated me for an award in the legal sector.  I filled out a form with some more information and had to wait to see if the judges would shortlist me.

As always I never expect to be shortlisted, and I am still shocked someone has taken the time to nominate me. Then on Monday, I was walking around The Justice Museum in Nottingham (being a law geek) and my phone notifications went crazy.

It was via twitter that I realised I had been shortlisted for the law awards.  There is a public vote for some of it and I would appreciate your support.

Vote for me in the Rising Star Law Award

If you would like to vote for me (before the 9th June 2017) then follow these simple instructions.  Click this link, fill in your details, select law from the dropdown and then my name, Rebecca Morgan.

Thank you all so much for your ongoing support with my blog, but also the votes for these awards. I never expect to win these things, but really appreciate you voting for me.  Please do share with friends and family, or on social media.
