Second Year Law Student Shadelle Dickson-Morris, The Lawyer Portal’s rep for Derby Law School, writes a brief introduction to TLP outlining its benefits and why you should get involved!
What is TLP?
Hi, I’m Shadelle. I am a current second year student and the brand ambassador for TLP.
I am here to give you some information into what The Lawyer Portal is and how it will help us as law students.
First, great news … it is free to join so sign up to gain all the great benefits!
It is a great way to keep up to date with current events such as law fairs, training contract application tips and vacation schemes.
It is a fantastic source to help build on your commercial awareness which I have personally found very useful. As a second year student I’ve found several different sources to help build my commercial awareness and this has to be my favourite.
TLP also provides quizzes such as ‘how much do you know about criminal law?’, and which ‘which fictional law are you?’. The quizzes are really light headed and a great way of checking knowledge of the legal world.
My personal opinion of the TLP, “there are so many different website to sign up to that offer assistance with our legal journeys. I have a few that I check on a regular basis and I have to say that The Lawyer Portal is one of my favourites. This is the main reason I applied to be the brand ambassador as TLP are on all platforms not just their website, which is so handy for me as I’m always on Instagram. So to join their Q&A on a Tuesday is great for me. Also the application tips they post have helped me work on my current training contract application forms. Plus the advise is from Bird & Bird who TLP are in partnership with, and who better to get application tips from than a huge law firm. I find it great to use and very diverse!”
