Meet the Instagrammers making law revision look glam

By on

If you don’t snap your studies, are you even revising?

Exam season, or better known as ‘cram season’, is upon us. For law students, tasked with the monotonous process of committing cases and statutes to memory, it’s a dull time to say the least.

To brighten up your study sesh, Legal Cheek has selected its favourite legally minded edu-influencers using Instagram to share their study secrets with the masses.

Leading the way is mysterious life hack law student turned social media influencer, WaysToStudy, who boasts 231,000 Insta-followers and just over 437,000 subscribers on YouTube. Shrouded in secrecy, this anonymous Instagrammer, who goes by the name ‘Rose’, hides her true identity to prevent jeopardising her future legal career. But, clearly following the superhero mantra, ‘with great power, comes great responsibility’, Rose (see below) uses her platform to share her revision routine, productivity tips and her aesthetically pleasing study snaps to help and inspire other law students.

Also going for the chic study set up is popular Instagrammer legallystudies, who appears to champion the work-from-home tactic (see below). In addition to sharing snaps of her eye-catching revision dōjō with her 70,000 insta-followers, this study sensei makes use of Instagram’s highlights feature to offer her top revision tips for law.

Next up is studylawwithme, who according to her bio, is a first year law student chasing a TC. As seen from the post below, this Instagrammer shows us the importance of timekeeping, organisation and that there’s no such thing as too much highlighter.

For law students committed to the cram, leaving the ‘open 24/7’ library is a luxury to be enjoyed only by the exam-less. But as Instagrammer, studylikealawstudent, shows us in the snap below, sunlight and revision can go hand in hand.

But for those of you reluctant to indulge Mother Nature’s green gifts for fear of distraction, as shown by law.lavender below, you can always bring the garden — or at least a green plant — to your study space.

When the stress has left you surviving on a diet of sugary snacks, coffee and Pro-Plus caffeine pills, it can be easy to say ‘no’ to decent nutrition. But why not get creative in how you fuel up? Setting the example is Instagrammer lucydoeslaw who shows off her smart snacking with her tastebud tingling banana and peanut butter canapés.

There may be points during the peaks of your revision related despair that you’re ready to give it all up — who needs a law degree anyway, am I right? Wrong, you can do this! Believe in yourself! You’re nearly there! But if I, the Legal Cheek journo contributing to your procrastination cannot help you cross that finish line, perhaps follow on from lawstudyblog‘s use of inspirational quotes.

Often there’s a correlation between those who spend more time taking pictures of their perfectly presented work, and those who end up with a Pass.



And a correlation between the people who write with huge handwriting, use 100 different colours to highlight, etc.



Hoping to have Kirkland NQ grace us with his presence again.

Sorry was busy on a call with the head of a PE fund who was trying to recruit me yet again. The managing partner here keeps upping my salary to keep me so here I am.



I crammed and got by. It can be done.


JD Trainee

Tell me about it…



I said crammed, not rammed.



Pictures of books on tables.



I’ll take my pile of food and drink packaging next to a grotty library PC with the distinct whiff of ritalin-derived diarrhoea in the air any day over this.



The majority of my “studying” was spent in the pub procrastinating and them cramming with an all nighter before the exam. I say that if I could do it all over I wouldn’t do the same, but who am I kidding?






Which uni did you go?


Rebecca Jane

And @BloggingMyWayThroughTheLLB !!

Unfortunately we’re not allowed to take photos at work. I would share a snap from my lambo as I drive into work but I’ll most likely be too busy smashing a multi billion dollar PE deal on speakerphone next to my model girlfriend.





legend detector






Kirkland NQ

Ok lads, thanks, I do know that I’m a legend

(please don’t stop)


Stephen Lucas K&E Partner

Get back to work, peasant.


Kirkland NQ

When you get your drawings you’ll be so grateful you’ll be cleaning my Lambo with your silk shirt.


Library girl

I get my big cup of coffee and put it slightly to the right of where my books are. I then decant my cutesy pencil case and carefully arrange my differently coloured highlighters in a row to my left. I then position my post-it notes just next to my differently coloured biros. Usually, I then take a picture of this scene. Then I cry.



I sometimes toss my pen on top of my book in such a natural way, as I’ve just put it down from doing loads and loads of writing. It always lands so perfectly to show that I still have loads of writing left to do.

Then I stare into the mirror, vacuously, for several hours.. unblinking..



we’re all gonna make it, zeezbruh



Adam why don’t you do a story on lawyers on Bumble for your next piece? Just swipe, screenshot and load. You’re clearly running low on material.



Low? He’s done Twitter and now Instagram. There must be other social media he uses whilst on the shitter that he can quickly cobble something together from.



Well, nothing can outclass his piece on Kim Kardashian at law school, none of which I read. I do however, enjoy posting feedback in the comments.


Alpha M

I wonder why.



Oh, you again. YAWN.



Must be sad to be such a one trick pony when that trick is so dull. He thinks he is witty. Everyone he works with hates him, but hates his “sense of humour” even more.



Seems like the type who would wear a novelty tie and call themselves “the office clown”



Don’t forget to like and subscribe.



sounds like a great way to get a 2:1



Sounds good doesn’t work. These pictures look cute and all but let’s not repentend they don’t waste a good hour or two just to take these pictures. If you need a nice desk to be motivated to study then perhaps you shouldn’t study that course at all.



Hi David.
