Welcome to Leadenhall Market, alleged and acclaimed as the inspiration for Diagon Alley in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. In the heart of the City, nestled between the Walkie Talkie and the Gherkin, sits London’s answer to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. It’s charming, and unsurprising that it inspired Rowling to create her magical high street, hidden in central London. In Rowling’s world, unicorns are elusive, magical creatures. In the City of London, they are…

It’s that time of the year again when social media feeds become saturated with holiday photos. Over the past fortnight I’ve scrolled passed bikini-clad tanners, backpackers in South-America, amblers in the Lake District, surfers in Cornwall, adventurers in Kenya, a multitude of family holidays and several North American road trips. Daily there are swarms of children and families everywhere, slowing me down but (mostly) making me smile as they picnic or play, running around with…
Before the true corporate commentary begins, I feel I should introduce myself and catch you up on my life so far, since I’ll be the narrator for most of the publications on this site. At least, you should probably be aware of my ongoing efforts to become a lawyer, where I’ve come from, where I am currently, and where I’m working towards. Let’s start with present day… It’s July; the sun is high and hot.…
It’s Spring of the academic year, full of fresh starts and new life. Campuses around the UK are flooded with flyers, freebies and freshers’ flu. Familiar faces, tanned from their summer adventures, catch up over coffee, drinks or dinner whilst newcomers linger in huddles, fervently sociable to anyone and everyone they can find. Whether you’re starting afresh, or returning, it’s back to law school. If you’re new to university, you’ve probably mastered the classic ‘name…

Don’t think that if you studied law then a legal career is your only option, that if you didn’t study law you’ve missed the boat, or that you have to plough straight into a training contract after university. Let me introduce you to a few almost-colleagues who will mostly take the mantle of blogging this time around! We’ve all got Training Contracts…
