10. TheLegalDiaries

A Keele Uni second year charts the ups and downs of her law degree.

It has been a crazy day. Thankyou to @legalcheek for sharing this page! (Although, without asking me first…but it's cool. We cleared that up earlier!) However, it has raised my attention to the importance of ensuring that your personal information is secure online. Especially in light of details that I had left available on this account. This page will remain anonymous from now on. At present with 2 sarcastic and legally motivated admins! 🙂 Also, in a slightly happier note (but still so so relevant!) – This gives you a good chance to check out the new Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act 2014. It was an exciting summer and the law on the sanctity of personal information has just gotten better!! (Thanks for reading) -S #lawfeels #DRIP2014 #dataretention #Lawstudent #lovelaw #anonymous #law #lawschool #hardworking #workaholic #sorrynotsorry
