*Adds Photoshop skills to LinkedIn*
Before COVID-19, legal dissertations amounted to semester-long sentences, to be served in the law library.
For the many hard working, sleep-deprived and caffeine addicted students, hope could be found in the celebratory dissertation picture. Those struggling to battle their whopping word count, could find momentary strength in day-dreams of witty captions containing diss puns and ideal selfie-spots on campus.
But now under a different kind of lockdown, law students have had to abandon their pre-pandemic plans of viral diss pics as lectures, exams and dissertation hand-ins move online.
And yet, despite the challenges of the ‘new normal’, celebrating law students have instead taken an inventive approach to their virtual dissertation snaps — while showing off their kitchens, living rooms, back gardens and impressive photoshop skills.
To celebrate their valiant efforts, Legal Cheek have rounded up the best legal dissertation pictures from lockdown.
