I know it's been a long time but life is busy...

I know that this has been the longest period of inactivity on this blog for a very long time and I am sure that the miniscule readership that I previously had has now disappeared but with a bit of spare ime on my hands I thought it would be good to post this short message as a way of getting the ball rolling again and posting more often.

The BVC has been harder than I expected not in terms of complexity but purely in the absolutely mind blowing amount of work that is required by BPP. I must admit that there have been a few wobbles this term about whether or not this was a wise choice, however three VCs and an Outstanding in the recent round of assessments has helped. This has given me a new vigour and enthusiasm for the course, and with missing out on an outstanding in advocacy by very few marks (2% to be exact), I am determined to go the extra mile in the next assessments.

The big surprise of these marks was the outstanding for Legal Research which I was sure was going to be a pile of crap and score a low competent if that. Wonders never cease. Before I sign off I just wanted to let you know that the next post will be on the two recent cases involving mothers helping their children to die. I may also post on my impressions of the Chilcot inquiry.

All the best
