I hope this finds you well. I'm Kim, the author of most of the blogs on this site, and very pleased that you're reading this material. I'm a recent gradate of the University of Sheffield, having studied Law (with French Law) LLB for four years, including a year abroad in Aix-en-Provence. I currently study a fast-track LPC at the University of Law, Moorgate and am due to start work as a trainee solicitor for a London-based Magic Circle firm (provided all the exams go to plan!) in March 2020.
University has given me opportunities to study and research internationally, engage in pro bono work, develop legal writing and academic interests. I've regularly undergone experience at corporate firms, from A-level schemes throughout university, completing first-year schemes, a campus representative role, and a vacation scheme in recent years.
I'm a coffee-loving Christian who's free time is spent reading, writing, cooking language-learning, travelling, taking photos, eating, and catching up with friends and family. No day passes me by without coffee, to-do lists, and texting my mum! I won't deny I'm a bit of a geek, and quite happy that way!
I've only very recently moved down to London, a big switch from my north-Nottinghamshire roots and country-girl background! It's retained it's glean of novelty thus far, to the extent that even being packed in a tube like sardines feels like a reminder that I'm actually in London, which still makes me smile! I love the city, the bustle, the food markets, the views, and the history, and am excited for many weekends of exploring amid the frantic revision over coming weeks and months!
Given my love of writing and an enthusiasm to improve corporate awareness and connections with universities and students, I've decided to write this blog! I sincerely hope it's useful and engaging, at least at some level, feedback is ever-welcome so please feel free to comment however you find publications!
Thanks for reading,
