Alumnus Matt Barnett has been a barrister since 2019 after completing his BPC part-time and obtaining pupillage with Ropewalk Chambers:

"For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to be a barrister. Unfortunately, due to non-academic reasons, I was forced to defer the third year of my law degree.
"I entered the banking profession and had a very successful career, culminating in my role as Operations and Control Manager for Santander where I was responsible for helping to develop practices and procedures for fighting fraud and other forms of financial crime.

It’s the final week of Stress Awareness Month, and this year it’s all about 🤏

We’ve been sharing advice from our Wellbeing Advisors each week, here are a few more of their top tips to start your journey.

I always try to have my lunch break away from my desk, either eating lunch while watching a Netflix series or even popping to the gym. It can be tempting to not use your lunch break when you’re busy but I find taking it actually makes me more productive throughout the day. It can also be something to look forward to when you’re having a busy morning. (Tiana- Wellbeing Advisor for the Online campus)

Something I’ve done to improve my wellbeing is starting a ‘one line a day’ journal. It’s a very small effort every day but provides a moment of calm and reflection to think about my day and how I’m feeling. It’s great to be able to look back on entries in previous months/years and see what’s changed and reflect on how I’ve changed as well. (Nathalie- Student Wellbeing Advisor for the Nottingham and Sheffield campuses)

Congratulations to Aruna Verma, Dean of our Moorgate Campus who was sworn as a Judge of The Sikh Court on 20 April. 👏

The ceremony took place at The Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn and was officiated by The Hon. Judge Manpreet Singh of the United States of America. Aruna is now one of 14 judges appointed to serve in the Sikh Court UK.

The Sikh Court is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) based on a ‘Med-Arb’ framework, a forum created by Sikh and non-Sikh lawyers and judges from across the world to resolve disputes within the Sikh community.

On being sworn in Aruna says “This is an initiative to support the Judicial system and work in tandem in dealing with disputes that currently clog up the ever growing burdened judicial system. With lengthy delays in listing, the courts of this country are simply understaffed and under resourced. The Sikh Court is not only an ADR forum for Sikhs but a civic duty to do our part in supporting society. I am honoured to have a chance to serve my community".

A careers fair is a great way for you to find graduate jobs, work placements and internships. It’s important to prepare carefully so you can make the most of the opportunities on offer. Ahead of our Careers Fair at our Moorgate campus on 18 April, we're sharing some tips on how to make the most of your time 👇

💻 Research who will be attending
Most fairs will give a rundown of the organisations attending. Make a list of the top businesses you’d like to network with and check for any free services you can take advantage of, such as a CV check or careers advice.

💭 Memorise your introduction
Prepare a short introduction, stating your name, what you’re studying and the kind of experience or role you’re looking for. Keep your shoulders back, maintain eye contact and practice active listening to show confidence and attentiveness.

❔ Prepare questions to ask
This could be enquiring about skills they’re looking for, the company culture and any relevant experience needed.
PRO TIP: use the insight you gained in your research to tailor your questions. It will show genuine interest in the role and help the conversation flow better.

✍️ Make notes
Once you leave a stand, take a few minutes to record your thoughts. Write down the key details like submission deadlines for applications, the entry requirements and their contact details. Also, note down your overall impressions: Did you feel comfortable with the employer? Did the company culture seem welcoming? Did the everyday routine of the role seem interesting? You can refer back to these notes later too if you are offered an interview 😀

📲 Contact them
Employers will talk to many students throughout the day, so it's key to follow up. Promptly reach out after the fair by connecting and messaging them on LinkedIn or sending a quick email. Thank them for their time, reintroduce yourself and reinforce your interest in their relevant opportunities.

It is week three of Stress Awareness Month, and this year it's all about 🤏

We've been sharing advice from our Wellbeing Advisors each week, here are a few more of their top tips to start your journey.

"A small habit of mine that I swear by is technology breaks. Given so much of our life takes place on screens, from our mobile phones to laptops, to the social media we access them on, to even how we work and learn, I try to spend 1-2 hours a week where I am not with my phone or an evening without watching TV. I will often put my phone on charge in another room, so there isn’t that temptation, and will instead reach for a board game or venture out for a walk. I also try to take regular breaks away from the computer during my workday – even if it’s to stretch or to grab a cuppa. It sounds so simple, but I’ve really found it increases my mental clarity, provides room for new hobbies and interests that reduce stress, and just generally allows my mind to reset." 🧠(Victoria Reese- Senior Wellbeing Advisor based in our Wellbeing Advice team.)

"A tiny habit I’ve been taking on is making sure I spend some time outdoors every day. This is especially important for me on days I’m working from home or don’t have any social plans. This might just be by walking to the shops, getting a coffee or a walk around the park as it helps me switch off from work and stresses at home." 🌲 (Jack- Wellbeing Advisor based at our London Bloomsbury Campus.)

We'll be sharing advice from our Wellbeing Advisors each week, and today we'll be looking at their tips to start your journey 🧑‍🔧

📝 Use your old habits as a guide 📝
"A tip I would give to someone looking to implement a new habit is to try to build the new habits around existing activities, for example, if you’re looking to start moving more you could do some simple exercises or stretches when you’re waiting for the kettle to boil, or when brushing your teeth." - Ruth (Student Wellbeing Advisor at our Leeds and Newcastle campuses)

🔁 Consistency is Key 🔁
"Stay consistent. Sometimes it takes a while to see results so try to commit to the habit for a least a week or two." - Tiana (Wellbeing Advisor for the Online campus)

Today marks the start of Stress Awareness Month, and this year it's all about 🤏

We'll be sharing advice from our Wellbeing Advisors each week, starting today with tips to build tiny habits 🧑‍🔧

⏲️ The five-minute rule ⏲️
“If you want to start a new hobby or lifestyle change, then begin with just five minutes. If you enjoy it and you notice positive benefits, increase the time you take each time. The idea is making it regular, and sometimes short, sweet, and often is the key to success.” - Victoria (Senior Wellbeing Advisor, London campuses)

💗 Do what you love 💗
“Try to build habits that incorporate things you enjoy or make you feel positive. For example, listening to music that you love can help improve your wellbeing as it can help uplift your mood and distract you from any stresses. By integrating things you love, such as music, into your daily habits you can make the habit-building process more enjoyable and sustainable.”- Jack (Wellbeing Advisor, London Bloomsbury campus)

🌱Start small 🌱
“Although implementing change can be a bit daunting, committing to making the effort every day does pay off in the long term. It’s really rewarding to see the results - you just have to be prepared for it to take time. The times you don’t feel like doing your positive self-care habits may be the times you need to do them the most.” - Nathalie (Wellbeing Advisor, Nottingham and Sheffield campuses)

As we come to the end of Neurodiversity Celebration Week, we spoke to some of our neurodivergent faculty to understand more about their personal experiences.

Read on to hear from Rachel Ryan (Senior Law Lecturer at our Online campus), Dan Lovesey (Disability and Inclusion Advisor at our Manchester campus) and Jason Luxemburg (Disability and Inclusion Advisor at our Manchester campus).

Q: When did you first realise you might be neurodivergent?
A: Rachel ⬇️
I first realised that I might be neurodivergent when I was researching ADHD in relation to one of my children 3 years ago. Initially, after reading medical and academic articles, I ruled it out because I didn’t recognise myself in the deficit narrative that I was reading.
It was only when I started to listen to podcasts and social media posts featuring women with lived experiences of ADHD that I had a light bulb moment of “that’s me”.

Q: What advice would you give students who think they’re neurodivergent but don’t know what to do about it?
A: Dan ⬇️
Research and think about what your neurodivergence means for you.
Whilst getting a formal diagnosis can be an important step in accessing more support, self-identification can be an important part of the diagnostic process. It can also be a positive step for your mental health and wellbeing.

Q: Should students make the University aware of their neurodiversity when they study with us?
A: Jason ⬇️
If you do choose to make the University aware of your neurodiversity, we can support and advise you. Many colleagues at the University are neurodivergent and can offer advice that comes from a place of lived experience, whether it’s personal or professional.

The latest business survival rates show that 29% of business founded in 2020 haven’t made it past the two-year mark 📉

Of all businesses set up in 2020, 93% made it through their first year. While this statistic appears encouraging at first, the number drops to 71% in year two. It is often said the early years of business are the most challenging and these numbers certainly support that theory.

There is also a breakdown by region of success, with Scotland leading the way at 74.2% survival rate for 2020-2022. Read the press release to see the full list of regional business survival rates for this time period 🔗 https://ow.ly/PLfP50QYKAV

Professor Marco Mongiello, our Pro Vice-Chancellor, Business and Science, shares his advice for early-stage businesses to succeed:

1️⃣ Be “judiciously passionate” - having passion in your product or offering will put you in good stead for success [but] try not to be so in love with your product that you end up with blinkers on, creating an inability to see flaws or opportunities.

2️⃣ Don’t live in a spreadsheet - this can be an efficient way to manage profit and loss and maintain solid margins, however it shouldn’t be your only way... you need to analyse what the rest of your market is doing. Numbers will only tell part of the story, the key is to balance the analysis with external information and your entrepreneurial instinct, too.

3️⃣ Be ready to adapt - things have changed significantly since 2020. This means that while your business plan and outlook may have looked a certain way back then, there is a good chance something will have to change now in order to keep up.

Our Rich Heritage

The University of Law is one of the UK's longest-established specialist providers of legal education. Our origins can be traced back to 1876 with the formation of the leading tutorial firm Gibson & Weldon, and later on, with the establishment of The Law Society School of Law. In 1962 the two were amalgamated to establish The College of Law. We were the first-ever independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers and not long after, in 2012 we gained university title.

We’re at the heart of legal education as the acknowledged leader in innovative, professional legal education for prospective lawyers and professional development training for those already qualified. Over the years, we have worked with virtually every UK law firm to help meet their training and development needs, with many firms sending their trainees exclusively to us.

We made history in 2006 by becoming the first independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers by the Privy Council, leading to the development of our professionally-focused Bachelor and Master of Laws degree programmes.

With a rich heritage and a reputation for innovation and contemporary teaching practices, we continuously focus on developing the best legal minds.
