Well this is going to be a boring race. Probably easy to win. Only I really don't want to spam for two pages alone now. Maybe I should go to sleep and win this tomorrow morning.

I’m going to stay up and spam so I win.

Actually who am I kidding I’m going to bed right now as I’m so looking forward to my 4/5 hours of sleep.

The AC season is over anyway, right?

It is, but that’s not the point. The annoying thing is that this flat cost a shitton of money And things keep breaking down And I keep putting more money into it. Not cool. :/

No-one's. (She left her possessions to Him of Many Faces ;) )

No but seriously it wasn't a will for an actual person, just an activity we did using a set of details our professor assigned. The LPC side of the course is not so much academic as the practical elements of a legal career - drafting legal documents, litigation procedure, solicitors accounts etc. I love it so much. You know Paula talks about the high she gets from a good legal brief? Well that's me!

I'm also lucky to have the opportunity to do lots of research as my course also entails writing g a dissertation/project, which I need to write my proposal for by next month. Much excitement on my end

I still don't understand when you start talking legal, but good for you that you have found you really like it. ;)

I am more of a Heather. I'm a student. I just signed up to do an extra program this year - as an addition to the MA I already have - that I expect to be quite boring, but it will at least qualify me to start applying for teaching jobs, preferably abroad. I am sick of not having a job and being in a field where there are almost no reliable long-term contracts ... pfffff. I hope that at least this program will lead to something, but it is one year more ... (adding to my PhD program, of course).

So your program is on a MA level, or how does this work now?

Yes it's on the MA level. Combines the straight LPC (which is a specialist course which is necessary to allow me to practice as a solicitor) with an LLM (which is the Masters side of the course)

Buck, her course is a year long, post grad, specialist one to then allow her to practice law, it’s intense and not easy and I wish her the best of luck with it :).

And it's more intense because I have the Dissertation work to do :P but it's the only way to get student finance for the course and I enjoy that academic side too so I'm happy

Wow that’s very complicated. Here people just go to a law school for 5 years and they get to practice whatever they want after that. Well, good luck with your course @HelenaExMachina

And @Buckwheat you are truly the real life manifestation of Heather’s “I’m a student”. Another course? :eek: how do you not get tired of studying stuff? Very impressive and very admirable skills there.

All that studying, and still can’t represent some one in Crown Court.....:P.

Only, very very mildly teasing Helena, wishing you the absolute best of luck with your LPC, from big and mini Sith :D.

For what it’s worth I think you’ll make a great solicitor.

I think here it is the same. I don't really know, but I am sure it is simpler than Helena's thing ...

Well, I am going to be the first one to tell you that I don't actually want to do this course and that I am going into it purely on the thought that it might actually help me get a real job somewhere. Not the one I actually dream of. I am ... settling for it. But on the off chance that it gets me out of my parents' home before I am 30, it is worth it.

And I can only wish to be as cool as Heather. She even managed to start living alone permanently. I have not. :(

It's not much different really, 3 years undergraduate law degree, 1 year LPC or alternatively a pupillage if you want to be a Barrister, like our gracious empress. You need to do a training contract after your LPC too but that's basically just your 'learn on the job' period

That means a lot, thank you :)

Barrister never appealed to me for some reason. Not least that I never really understood the Inns of Court, dinners stuff :p

I am back at talking to the Supernatural Entity and he is saying ALL THE RIGHT STUFF and I just want to hop on the next bus and go north to my other home and!

Oh also, during the summer course last week, I had a minor relapse in my sadness that I didn't feel most of the time since the breakup, so it basically came back to haunt me after being pushed away for like half a year almost.

I am a mess. :angry:

I had to go to 12 of them!, some of them were quite interesting and involved too much wine!, but really they're great for networking.

I think it just appealed to me because I can be an argumentative,stubborn bitch :P, but I won't be going back to it any time soon, if ever, I have an apprentice to raise :D.

Well you’re Still putting time and effort into it, no matter for what reason. I would never ever have the patience for that :/

Yeah, that sounds a little simpler than what I thought so far. I don’t know anything about law so that probably adds a lot to it why it still sounds complicated.

 

:stillsick: it’s 30C and I’m sitting at some stupid tax office. I know nothing about these things. I guess I should just get an accountant... I mean I just cannot deal with this and getting rid of the stress is probably worth the fortune I’d pay an accountant. Stupid stupid stupid entrepreneurship.
