Angelica Olawepo

London School of Economics (LSE) law student Angelica Olawepo is the latest vlogger to take to YouTube to share her legal tips and tricks.

Her growing channel, Angeliculture, which has over 1,000 subscribers and has received more than 56,000 views, features videos about careers and study advice, as well as vlogs documenting her university experience.

In her most popular video (embedded below), with over 12,000 views, Olawepo recalls her A-Level results day experience. She explains that rather than posting her live reaction on the day itself, she chose to wait two years before making the video. This was so that her story could resonate among viewers — rather than looking speculatively towards the future, Olawepo was able to cast her mind back and evaluate the progress she has made so far.

Olawepo has since released a string of videos aimed at aspiring law students. In one clip (below), Olawepo, who received offers from a number of Russell Group universities, instructs viewers on how to write a “phenomenal” personal statement when applying to law school. Another sees her outline five tips that helped her to achieve A*, A*, A at A-Level.

Her channel also offers insight into life as an LSE law student. One clip reveals how Olawepo takes effective notes — a tip she picked up at Oxford, where she completed the Lady Margaret Hall Foundation Year prior to joining LSE. For example, her approach to tackling reading lists is through formatting notes in tables, rather than lists.

The 2019 LPC Most List

In her series, ‘LSEVlogs’, viewers get to see Olawepo’s journey to date: starting from moving into university accommodation to getting ready for a university Christmas ball. When asked about how she manages her academic studies with her YouTube channel, Olawepo tells Legal Cheek that she produces videos in bulk. “Right now, I have about nine videos which have been filmed, edited and scheduled in advance, so that I can focus on preparing for my January exams,” she explains.

Olawepo, who hopes to become a solicitor, also shares with Legal Cheek that she started her channel with the intention of raising awareness of social mobility schemes designed to widen access into the legal profession. Many of which Olawepo, “a working-class student from a single parent home, living in an area of extreme deprivation”, benefited from herself.

Looking to the future, Olawepo is set to release a video on how she managed to build her experience in the legal industry. “Honestly, I have a whole notebook full of my ideas and in 2019 I plan to create a LOT of content about law!” she says.

Keep up with Olawepo’s journey by following her YouTube channel, as well as her Twitter and Instagram pages.

Great article LC. I think I speak for all LC readers when I say we LOVE hearing about YouTube personalities that definitely didn’t pay you any money to post about them on your website.

I mean just look at how much adoration Eve got on her last FOUR articles. It’s clear you’re onto a winner here, keep up this string of top-tier journalism! Plus, if it doesn’t go your way you can always just delete the comments you don’t like!

🙂

LC has always been a bit of an unfunny joke when it comes to creating ‘content but it is taking the piss out of its readership with these type of articles.

As correctly identified above, the response to Eve Cornwell’s plugs meant this article was always going to be negatively received. LC knew this but recognised the number of comments they would receive results in traffic to the website.

They don’t care about good or bad comments with articles like this because it’s all about the numbers.

You are seriously going to feature a Youtube channel with 1,000 subs

That’s 1000 more people looking up to her than you will ever have looking up to you.

Well, we all have to start somewhere. The people who now have millions of subscribers literally started with just 1.

Okay now Eve Cornwell was featured 4 times if you don’t feature Angelica 3 more times, we will accuse legal cheek of unconscious bias.

CPM on YouTube plummets from its December peak to January low. LC is terribly late to the party.

Not angelica, not eve

Corrr the haters and jealousy on here. The ugliest thing about law is the characters of the people attracted to it. These people are even worse once you start work, unfortunately.

LC will rightly continue to publish whatever the fuck they like, including features on student bloggers.

Go and read the FT if you’re looking for gravity. Better still, get a life.

Hattie

The hate here is literally disgusting. You’re jealous that other people are brave enough to bring ideas into action.

Angelica’s channel has probably helped more people than you salty people ever can, and maybe you wouldn’t be so miserable with your life of you took some of her advice.

It’s another example of the blind leading the blind. People telling you how to become a top lawyer when they aren’t even qualified and worked full time in a law firm for a number of years to be in a position to give an accurate explanation of real life in a firm.

Where did she ever give advice on how to be a top lawyer?

Again, where did she give or say she was giving advice on how to be a “top lawyer”?
She’s giving advice on how to get to where she is – getting work experience etc – which she definitely has Already done. If you checked her LinkedIn and credentials, you’d know this… but of course some people would rather hate because of their own insecurity, but that’s none of my business 😊😊😊

Another pointless and unfounded comment by someone trying to play the moral hero. Take a moment to actually read the comments – with the exception of one that queries why she is featured with a relatively low number of subscribers, and the other that queries why she waited two years to do an ‘A-Level reactions video’, something I think everyone is slightly baffled by.
The vast majority of comments are, quite understandably, confused as to why a topic (i.e. Youtube promoters), that evidently has little – absolutely no interest from the readership is so constant. Any self-respecting publication publishes content which is 1) unbiased, and 2) relative to its readership. The fact that this stuff is featured so regularly is evident that LC is lacking both 1 and 2.
Get off your high horse and take a moment to read the comments you’re so quick to criticise.

Omg so true. This article about a law student, who blogs about law and study tips, is sooo irrelevant to the readership :/ does LC think its website is frequented by a bunch of law students??? Lmao. Thank you for railing against this gross injustice xx

Painfully obvious that, from about 1pm onward, Angelica’s idiot followers have now been called in to defend her honour.

Or, ordinary people dismayed by vitriolic comments read them and chose to respond. You can’t disagree with something before it’s been said, genius.

If you are so upset, fuck off then??? The internet is a big place, suggest you move on. The article isn’t going to be taken down, you whining is pointless.

It’s still *you’re

Very obvious; I assume they are the ones using excessive question marks, capital letters and swearing. A great advert.
