Five Things You Should Do When You Start Law School

Now that you are a law student, there are a few things you can do to give yourself the best start possible!

1. The great thing about studying law, as with most subjects, is that the more organised you are the more likely you are to stay on top of your workload. Pick up a planner like the one pictured below – This will help you stay organized throughout the year, plus we are lucky enough to get it for free. You can pick one up from the Undergraduate office on the second floor in Mithras house.

2. If you don’t have a Facebook – make one! You are going to need it to stay in the loop with events,  interact with the different societies, job opportunities, and even find house mates. It is also a good way of keeping in touch with the people you meet during your time at university.

3. I was lucky enough in my first year to have two great second-year law students who really helped me with my essays and exam stress. So get involved with the Law Society, it is a great way to meet people who have been in your shoes – and we can give you help and advice during your course.

4. When I came to university I had a really bad CV, but after working with the University I went from my bad CV to always being invited to interviews! Go and visit the careers service for help and advice for your CV, and don’t forget to contact ‘active student’ for any volunteering opportunities.

5. Last but not least, it is very important to prepare for and attend all your lectures seminars! There is a reason you have an hour, and you can use this and any other time to go over topics with your lecturers, and it is an opportunity to ask questions about anything you don’t understand.

Good luck with your studies!
