I shall be populating this page with some of the Twitter accounts I think might be useful to law students making the transition into legal practice.
Do you have any particular favourite accounts? If you do, let me know and I might add them to the list. This is about creating a learning and sharing community, and we can all contribute.
If you're not following this account, you're missing out on videos, blogs, articles, and hints and tips galore on how to go about securing a training contract and what to expect in practice. They have won awards for their ability to engage with law students about law careers (www.duncangibbons.co.uk/academy-home/).
For me, Sarah is the perfect mentor for law students making the transition into practice. Sarah's website (www.fromstudenttosolicitor.com) is jam packed with hints and tips and advice. There is nothing artifical about Sarah. She is the real deal. Very engaging, and passionate about helping students reach their goal.
There's a lot I like about Bridget (www.bridgetclapham.co.uk). For starters, Bridget knows about exams and confidence, and knows that these two elements are related and feature heavily in the lives of students. What's even better about Bridget is she promotes the quiet inner confidence that I like. It's not the 'look at me, I'm uber-confident', which sometimes comes with the over-confidence I'm less keen on.
