I finished law school back in May and took my exams in June. It feels like it was an age ago already which probably means I’m doing too much. No long hot summer for me!
Law school was one of my favourite periods of education; I always knew I wanted to practice law and as much as I loved my law degree (I really did), Law school was so much more practical and I felt like I was getting one step closer to my dream.Exam results came out just a week ago and I can now proudly stay I’ve not only taken that step closer but I passed with DISTINCTION!!! I got a distinction in every single module so it almost makes up for just missing out on a first in my undergrad degree.
The nine months I spent at law school weren’t just great because I found my thing – they were also great because it was my first real taste of living/working in London.Ok, so I still commuted from Hertfordshire, but I spent 5 days a week there! I had a fab time meeting new people, meeting uni friends for dinner, trying out awesome new bars and having some amazing nights out.
I also spent an awful lot of time checking out the food scene. If I wasn’t meeting friends for dinner, I was trying out various street food vendors and I spent plenty of time checking out the various places to grab lunch within walking distance of my law school.Holborn has some great places to eat if you’re willing to take yourself off of the main road and down the back streets – they’re not scary I promise!
I did manage to get a few of my foodie visits turned into reviews but I couldn’t try all of these places without properly sharing what I found, so after maybe the 5th or so lunch eaten out I decided I had to put them on a map and so the Lawyer Does Lunch Map was born!With accelerated LPC students having started at BPP a few weeks ago, and FT LPC students starting in September I thought now would be a good time to share. This map is also great for anyone working in the many offices in the area. And for those starting at UAL, just up the road, there’s no excuse to ever have a boring lunch again!
