A magic circle trainee’s ultra-sassy tweets have been exposed for all the legal world to see

‘Bruv I’ve been up 20 hours’

A magic circle trainee has been given a lesson in social media etiquette after her brilliantly candid tweets about lawyer life appeared on the pages of a legal blog.

The “first seat trainee” made the decision to set up the tell-all Twitter account in her real name. Offering a unique insight into life at a top City firm, it would appear our loose-lipped newbie’s first day on the job was action-packed.

Fortunately, RollOnFriday, a weekly legal blog that first spotted and subsequently republished the tweets, has chosen not to name her. And probably just as well — her comments aren’t going to appear in the firm’s graduate recruitment brochure anytime soon…

This tweet shows she is fluent in legalease and street slang:

Our trainee really hates Excel.

Our anonymous lawyer should have checked out our law firm average arrive and leave the office times article.

Magic circle outfits only recruit the best graduates, right?

Cringe.

Our budding lawyer — who appears to have now deleted, or at least made private, her account — has also revealed titbits from her own personal life. First up, a vagina that smells like a Mexican restaurant.

Next, a vagina with alopecia.

Dildos and Brexit, what a combo.

Having been approached for comment, the trainee told the legal blog the account was intended “to be tongue in cheek”. Social media lessons aside, you can’t deny the tweets are pretty funny.

What she posted is pretty hilarious to be fair. Cannot blame her for having a personality. In any case, it is defo a good form that her details were covered up.

She meant a vulva with alopecia, not a vagina.

Sols unable to identify their own intimate body parts. Just like their inability to identify any relevant facts or arguments. Idiots, the whole fucking lot of them.

Legal cheek writers are as bored as me today then – flitting, pathetically, between ROF and LC.

Ahh, law – the promised land. Good all those years of education were worth it.

I hope not. I think most clients would find the tweets hilarious. I don’t think there’s been any harm done.

To use your own name and portray yourself so openly online indicates a deep level of stupidity.

It’s also fairly easy to find out her identity

I don’t know if I should be hopeful that they are handing out training contracts to just about anybody! Or be resentful that this chav has got one and I don’t…

If you do discover her identity , she’s anything but a chav – may behave like one though

Difficult being posh and thick in today’s world. Still stand a good chance of gaming the system but it’s not guaranteed anymore. Diddums.

Can you recommend some books for starters for a non-law student intending to do the conversion course and pursue a career as a solicitor?
