16 signs that you’re a basic law student

By on
18

How unoriginal are you?

Basic

1. R v Brown is your favourite case

And the only judgment you have read in full

rvbrown

2. Harvey Specter from Suits is your idol

Lead

3. You never leave the house without a law firm branded pen on your person…

And a pack of mints… and a highlighter… and a tote bag… the list goes on.

?????????????

4. You believe you’re the only person in the world with a coffee addiction

5. And a Red Bull addiction

6. You classify yourself as an expert in all legal and political news stories…

Despite having only had one lecture on the topic. Commenting on political manifestos around election-time is one of your particularly favourite past times.

7. You feel totally in the know about tort law disputes…

Ever since you skim read a case summary of Donoghue v Stevenson in your first term of law school.

8. You have no idea what commercial awareness is…

(But you like to pretend that you do.)

9. You are outstanding at assessment centre team-building exercises

Basic

10. Your method of legal research rarely extends beyond Google and Wikipedia…

And maybe e-lawresources at a push.

wiki

11. Despite your lazy techniques, you find it impossible to believe anyone has as much work to do as you

appliedmaths

12. You are very protective over your collection of highlighters…

And post-it notes and gel pens and paperclips and biros.

Leads

13. You would never dream of attending a law fair without bringing your business cards

Leads

14. You hate land law

land

15. But insist on dealing with all disputes you and your housemates have with your landlord, ‘for the good of the house’

igotthis

16. And dealing with all other disputes for that matter…

Whether it’s an argument about being refused entry into a club or a row over a taxi fare, you’ll make sure you’re right in the middle of it all — letting everybody know you are a “future lawyer”.

I-Am-A-Law-Student

Sorry…

Who invests in business cards to hand out to recruiters at law fairs?! I’m a trainee and I am still waiting for business cards…

Who on earth makes business cards as a student? Would hate to work with that kind of person.

Look at that subtle off-way colouring, the tasteful thickness of it… Oh my god, it even has a watermark.

Also I want to meet insufferable people who use the “I’m a law student” line to get in to a night club. Because that’ll work.

I’ve seen a partner in a city firm yell “I’ll have you know I am a lawyer!” in an attempt to negotiate entry to a gay bar.

Oh so it’s unoriginal but having seen a version of this article before and after I did the GDL, I can tell you that almost all of that is true. Minus the red bull and the crappy pens.
