Lawyer In The Making is going to the National Justice Museum

I am going to the National Justice Museum next week. Excited is an understatement.  It is no secret that I am a massive law geek and whilst I love sunny holidays and also city breaks. I also love going to crime and justice related places.  That include museums, castles, prisons etc.

Whenever I go on business trips I always try and find something law related to go and see or do.  I even managed to do that when I went to California for 3 weeks on a sight seeing type holiday.

I have an ever-growing list of crime and law related places I want to visit, both here in the UK and abroad.

So on Monday I will be in Nottingham, and I am heading to the National Justice Museum.  It has been on the list of places to visit for a while, as I have heard great reviews.

The weather isn’t meant to be amazing Monday/Tuesday in Nottingham, so it will be good to kill a few hours.

Plus I have heard that the pub/bar in a church is next door so that is always handy.

What is at the National Justice Museum?

So what is at the National Justice Museum? A series of cells to check out, various methods of punishment and lots of history (as well as more modern topics).

Our impressive collection is made up of over 40 000 objects and archives. It is the UK’s largest collection relating to  to law, justice, crime and punishment.

I am really looking forward to checking out some of the Great Train Robbery evidence as well as the dock from Bow Street Magistrates Court, which was used in notorious cases such as the trials of Oscar Wilde, Roger Casement and the Krays

I am going to keep this blog post short and then fill you in on my thoughts once I have visited.

Have you visited the national justice musuem? let me know on social media!

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!

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!

Are you coming to the Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference 2016?

I am so excited to be heading back to the Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference 2016 in a few weeks time.  I had a great time last year, the sessions were really good, the exhibition was great and I got to meet some old friends and make some new ones.

Details

Saturday 15th October 2016 at the Westminster Park Plaza, London.

prices

There were early bird prices for quite some time but I am not sure if they still apply.  They might possibly still apply for students but not lawyers.  Check this out online though. (Click the image below to be taken straight to the page for all the necessary information).

So, are you coming to the Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference?

If you haven’t booked a ticket yet or are considering whether you should attend then maybe check out some of my old blog posts about it from last year.

I met with lots of barristers and pupils whilst at the conference, and had some amazing conversations – so I definitely recommend it to barristers.

I would highly recommend students attending (whether you are LLB, GDL, LLM, BPTC), I personally had a great day, and I attended the sessions most suited to me, and they weren’t all the Young Bar related ones.

Bar Council Annual Bar Conference

I am going to be tweeting all of my conference notes and general engagement tweets during the day (I don’t make notes any more at conferences I just tweet them all), so I am sorry if you get a bombardment of tweets from me on the 15th October.

If you are attending drop me a tweet, my twitter is @lawyer_inmaking (You can follow me by clicking here) and we can say hi etc.

I am really excited to be attending the Annual Bar Conference and Young Bar Conference and really hope it is going to be as good as last year was!
