My name is Rebecca and I have been blogging all things law for 14 years.
I am an aspiring Barrister (after successfully completing my LLB) ands also plan on sitting the New York Bar exam in February 2021 (subject to Covid!). You can also call me a bit of a law geek!
Though everyone says this, from a very young age I knew that I wanted to study law and eventually become a barrister.
If you follow me online you will now I have a love for:
Crime dramas and documentaries;
Hot Chocolate (and ideally one with marshmallows);
Crime dramas and documentaries;
and... spending time chatting to law students!
What is Lawyer In The Making?
Lawyer In The Making is my blog which I started at the very end of December 2012 (31st December to be precise!). It started as a basic Wordpress blog, but after growing in popularity very quickly I made the decision to make it a little more professional and so Lawyer In The Making was created (don't worry, I copied all my old blog posts across!).
Technically I have been blogging about all things law and my studies/career since 2009/2010 in various forms. It is not all law though, it is study tips, technology, events, travel, books, TV programmes, lifestyle tips and more!
You can check out my older Lawyer In The Making video here, which explains a little more about what it is.
Whilst growing up it was near on impossible to undertake work experience with barristers, so I spent a lot of summers working with solicitors and gaining experience from them, though all of that still has not changed my mind on my final career path, and I endeavour to be a barrister in the next 5 years.
Over the past 10 years I have been fortunate enough to undertake a number of mini pupillages which have been extremely beneficial in gaining insight into the career as well as tips and knowledge that I will be able to develop for myself in the years to come.
Getting shortlisted in the UK Blog Awards 2015, and making it into the Top 10 in two categories was amazing (and very surreal). Then to be nominated as a Top 10 Rising Star in Law in 2017 was very surreal - but I met some lovely people along the way!
I really hope to use the tools and knowledge I have picked up from these, as well as legal events and advocacy training to help some of you!
I am so grateful to each and everyone of you that reads my blog posts, shares them, engages with me, you really make blogging an absolute pleasure.
Why not check out my YouTube Q&A video to hear a little bit more about me, but also a lot more about my blog?
