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.

Thomson Reuters | Library Skills

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

Thomson Reuters | Library Skills

Thomson Reuters | Library Skills

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!

Check the blog post out here. Please do hit the share button and share with your friends!

Bookmas Day 2 : The Rule of Law

It is Day 2 of Bookmas 2016 and I am sharing a book (which despite already having a copy) comes up on my Amazon all the time.

if you haven’t checked out what Bookmas is, click here!

Tom Bingham | The Rule of Law

This book was quoted by the Independent as “A gem of a book … Inspiring and timely. Everyone should read it”.

I completely agree, and you can purchase this book on Amazon here for £6.99 which is such a bargain!

 

Tom Bingham | The Rule Of Law

Tom Bingham | The Rule Of Law

This book was published back in 2011 but I still think it its a great read.  It really helps you understand about the ‘rule of law’, how things work, why we do certain things and much more.  If you like history and politics this is a must read also.

I know lots of people have ended up losing their afternoon or evening, and just read it in one go.

Add it to your Christmas list, have it as a stocking filler or even just purchase it before (or after) Christmas, you won’t regret it.

A brief guide to being a law student

I am so excited to announce that my e-book ‘A brief guide to being a law student’ will be available to purchase very very soon.

It has been an amazing project to work on, and I will explain all about why I made the decision to write the e-book as well as why there has been a slight delay in launching it.

Here is the front cover Of a brief guide to being a law student

A brief guide to being a law student.

A brief guide to being a law student.

I have been very lucky to work with We Are Mogul on this, and it is handy because they get me, and what Lawyer In The Making is and stands for, and they have brilliant ideas and know all of the tech based stuff too!

I can’t wait for you to see a lot more of it and I will be sharing sneak peaks over the coming weeks.  As soon as I have a launch date I will let you know but in the meantime make sure you subscribe to my weekly newsletter as I will be sharing a discount code to all of my followers.   Here is a copy of the launch email that I sent to my subscribers and you can subscribe via this link, as well as on the blog itself.

I hope you find the ebook useful, informative and a resource you can use throughout your legal studies.  I have tried to make it different to the standard ‘how to be a law student’ books on the market, and I really hope you enjoy giving it a read.

ebook twitter account – a brief guide to being a law student

I have set up a separate twitter profile for the ebook and you can find it here.  Do follow for ebook launch updates, sneak peaks and lots more information, and if you can retweet and share with friends, family, colleagues and fellow law students I would be extremely grateful.
