So I thought I would send an update (which I am sure many of you will read sometime over the next few days!). I can’t believe I set up my blog two years ago to the day! I hope you all have a lovely New Year’s Eve.
I have been up to quite a lot of exciting things this year, and in particular the last few months, and I thought I would share a bit about them, and also mention that I have blog posts scheduled on these sometime in January.
If you have been following my blog you will know that I have been supporting The Penalty film, and part of the reason I found out about that film was because of attending Amicus training (I have a blog post ready and waiting to be uploaded in the next week or so on this)
I was very fortunate to attend a training session with Dominic Byrne (former Radio 1 Breakfast News Read, and voice over etc) which I will definitely be uploading a blog post on in the New Year
I also went to my first big formal grown up legal training session with Tanfield Chambers
I can’t forget the UK Blog Awards nominations and being shortlisted for the finals
I have been on lots of interesting legal courses and events, such as the Pearson Law Express Day, and many other Inns of Court sessions
Networking with so many of you
Forming a lot of friendships through twitter – who knew twitter would be great for networking!
Final year at Uni – I can’t believe I have just finished my last ever term at Hertfordshire Uni and the LLB.
Representing Hertfordshire University in advocacy competitions again in the summer
Scholarship for BPTC to Middle Temple (as many of you know I want to be a Barrister so a few months ago I submitted my scholarship application to Middle Temple in preparation for the BPTC and Pupillage)
Starting my dissertation – after wanting to write a dissertation since before Uni started I am so glad to be writing one in my final year (I will all let you know more about it over the next few months)
Attending lots of great networking events
Being in a really good job right in the heart of London and the legal field
Lots of opportunities with my blog with book publishers etc and writing book reviews and articles for other websites
I have probably missed loads of legal related bits and pieces off here!
Have a great evening whatever you are up to this New Year’s Eve and I also hope you have a wonderful 2015!
