As some may remember from a previous post I applied to a certain MC firm for a summer placement. Well I have received an email inviting me to attend an interview.

I know that there will be those out there that are shaking their heads over this betrayal of my quest carrying on, but I am feeling quite proud having got this far in what is a massively competitive process.

I shall of course let you all know how it went in January after the interview. All the best,

A Merry Christmas one and all.

Hi everyone. I seem to be starting most of my posts with these words but again I apologise for the lack of entries recently. There is not much of a reason for this other than a little bit of laziness coupled with working on other things. I am at this moment working on a formative coursework for contract law. This is particularly important as the contract law assessment for my second year will be 100% coursework so this will give me a good indication.

Two small points:
You may have noticed that I have put Christmas at the top of this post which is entirely intentional. It annoys me no end that it is now in some areas being called 'wintermass' or 'frost festival' or whatever other nonsense that somebody makes up because someone, somewhere, might be offended. Although of course with the Law as it is it's not really that surprising when offending people is quickly becoming a criminal act. So I repeat Merry Christmas everybody.

Secondly I went busking yesterday for 3 and 1/2 hours in the city and made £45 which was a nice little bonus before Christmas. Might do it again tomorrow.

Hope everyone has a good time over the Christmas period and I will see you all again in the New Year.

Semi Final Success

The mooting competition continues for BoB as last night my learned friend and I were victorious in the semi final. It was very close but we won by the huge margin of one point!

I have learnt that I need to work a bit more on my opening, and to not use colloquial English, such as TV rather than television. But these are all good points which I can work on for the final next year, which will be in front of a judge and in gowns, which will be great fun, although nerve racking.

In other news I attended court and was able to get in front if the DJ three times, although everything was sorted outside so most of the time all I had to do was nod at the right time and smile sweetly.

Well that is a very quick round up of the past couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to Christmas, but will be doing work over the holiday, reading cases, a little bit of catching up and refreshing myself of what I have learnt so far.
