Resourceful student crafts his own private study area from books and sheet combination


Ever felt that you just needed to get away from it all for a quiet catch-up on some contract law reading? Well, one student appears to have gone to extreme measures to do just that.

Appearing on the Facebook page Trust Me I’m a Lawyer — which is popular with law students across Europe — the image shows a resourceful chap in shorts tucked up in a personal revision hideaway.

Having erected several pillars using books, the student has then attached what appears to be a bed sheet to the ceiling of the library, producing a structure that wouldn’t look out place on the fields of Glastonbury.

Legal Cheek has so far been unsuccessful in identifying the building pictured and therefore it remains unclear as to whether the library camper is indeed a law student.

However, wannabe lawyers do have previous when it comes to den building.

Earlier this year, bar professional training course students at BPP Law School in London built a fort out of discarded copies of Archbold Criminal Pleading, Evidence and Practice.

Law student or not, Legal Cheek salutes you anonymous tent building man.
