I am Rebecca, author of A brief guide to being a law student and founder of Lawyer In The Making. I am a Law Graduate and current part time BPTC student.
I am quite the law geek, having an ever-growing collection of legal related books in my makeshift library at home (bookshelves, bookcases and plastic boxes). I have also undertaken lots of paid work and work experience in the legal sector.
I spend a lot of my time creating content in the form of blog posts, allowing me to document my legal career so far, as well as share news articles, legal updates, study tips, points of debate and lots more.
I made the decision to write this book because, whilst I love some of the 'how to be a law student' books which are available, a lot of them are very text heavy. This is more of a brief guide, a useful resource to have on your phone, tablet or laptop, jam packed full of hints and tips to help you succeed in various areas of your legal studies (but I highly recommend you read some of the more text based books too!).
