You may have noticed that we’ve recently featured two of our newest BLS student bloggers on the site with Karim Maksood’s post on the UK’s relationship with the ECtHR and Aimee Denholm’s piece on the Stephen Lawrence case.
From a careers perspective, blogging is a fantastic strategy for getting noticed by potential employers and having something of interest to add to a CV.
Law graduates are competing in an over-saturated market with thousands of others who have very similar CVs and skill sets to show to legal recruiters. Gone are the days when a couple of weeks work experience in a law firm would be enough to set you apart from other candidates.
Showcasing your ability to write coherently, delivering a well-structured argument demonstrates not only your intellectual abilities but also that you have an active interest in current legal issues and are able to discuss them articulately. This is of great interest to your potential employer and makes you stand out from the sea of faces.
If you’re feeling reticent about putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) then your academic tutors can support you with this. Contact Dr Dimitrios Giannoulopoulos to find out which tutor can help you in the area you’re interested in writing about.
Stand out and get blogging!
