The legal profession loves Instagram.

Whether you’re a social media savvy student taking aesthetically pleasing snaps of your contract revision notes, or a Ryan Gosling look-alike with an incredible collection of suits, the legal profession is embracing Insta now more than ever.

And Legal Cheek is no different. Since joining the platform in 2012, we have been searching for and sharing some of the best law-themed memes the world wide web has to offer. Occasionally, we also (humblebrag alert!) produce our own viral hits, one of which was name-checked in the FT.

In recognition of our online endeavours and to celebrate surpassing 40,000 followers, here is a rundown of some of our favourite memes from the past year.

Enjoy!

To be fair it is not easy to be a poster boy / girl, especially the one with tens of thousands of viewers. I sometimes feel bad when I need speak to young students on career events / conferences. Trying to be honest with them but many really have no clue about real life in the City firms and just refuse to listen.

Rumours are true: she’s been on the receiving end of an absolute rogering, apparently also due to partners by now all knowing about her “Legal Blog”. They want to make sure she’s ‘properly utilised’.

R v Brown is the only one remotely funny. Expectedly, it has the fewest likes because LC fans are insipid morons.

I do not relate to any meme, as I do not have a brain or attention span of a 7 year old.
