God bless online lectures
With first term now well underway, one Hertfordshire law student shares 11 things that only those who study there will understand.
1. The queue at Café Moot Starbucks is a legit reason for being late to lectures
I was waiting in line for my frappuccino, okay?
2. Repeatedly underestimating how tense the online MCQs are
Time is running out.
3. Boasting to other law students that your uni has its own ‘real’ court
It even has a public gallery.
4. But never actually going into the ‘real’ court…
5. Using half your loan to buy ‘essential textbooks’ then realising e-law resources is free
Textbooks are overrated.
6. Feeling important AF flashing your student card to the library security, on the rare occasion you actually enter the LRC
You’re practically a VIP.
7. Finally attending one of your four workshops a week and feeling like student of the year
Science students just can’t grasp your contact hours arrangement, yet you still struggle to make it in.
8. ‘Do you know where ____ is on College Lane?’
‘No never been — only for the Forum’
9. Wishing you’d paid more attention in RES lectures when it’s time to reference your coursework
Author’s surname first? Or is it date of publication?
10. Scanning your student card every time you pass a scanner just because it makes you feel important
11. Your housemates are super jealous that most of your lectures get uploaded online
Goodbye 9am lectures! (Not that you ever went anyway…)
