Kyle Rittenhouse has been found not guilty on all charges today (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/nov/19/kyle-rittenhouse-trial-key-takeaways). Big difference between England and the USA is that us English still wear the ‘wig and gown’ during trials. Excellent outcome for the guy. Not so lucky for Oscar Pistorius’ trial which saw him convicted for murder. The case went on being popular for a number of years…
There is a lot happening, I should explain. Firstly, my conference assessment is coming up in December. I also have a mock assessment in a few weeks. This is major milestone 1. I have also just received some areas of research which will be required for in my mock drafting assessment. I think the drafting assessment is March, so plenty of practice time… I hope I am right about this. I’ve enjoyed the conferencing up to now. It will be in a criminal context, usually advising a client before a first court appearance in the Magistrates court. The real assessment will feature actors… let’s hope they send someone interesting.
My female ball python slithered behind the toilet last Saturday and behind the wall. So, she is literally in the wall and I haven’t managed to get her out yet. It’s frustrating to say the least… she keeps popping her head out but nowhere near enough to get her out yet. She is so strong, oh yeah, she is also called Gemini. Not that it is anything to do with the star sign… = quality is mutable. Hmmm, interesting.
Last Friday, 12th November from 7pm to 10:30pm I attended an Inner Temple Manchester dinner hosted in the wonderful Kimpton Clocktower Hotel. I was going to post about this but felt as if it was not worthy of a single post all to itself. See pictures below!# I also took part in conferences with real barristers chambers the same week, both cases I observed were relating to personal injury where the claim expected was in case 1 : £1,500,000 and case 2 up to: £3,000,000-5,000,000.
I have an interview on Tuesday. This particular company has been in contact with me before and a few times I had to say I couldn’t work because of my course. I am going to go though because it said come along to ‘discuss roles available’. It doesn’t sound too important if it turns out I can’t work for them because they aren’t flexible. Why they don’t just take me on part time I don’t know. The role I applied for was conveyancing paralegal. I’ve applied for this role before at the same company (see explanation above). Property law is of interest to me, as is property in general.
I’m exposing myself too much on this site and deep down I know it doesn’t matter in the end.
I also took on my first legal advice case this Wednesday. Concerning an employment issues. Unfair treatment, discrimination etc. Anyway, the interview with client was conducted with solicitor and myself. I took a comprehensive note and today sent that note to the pro bono department. Hard to believe I’ll get a masters from this.
Thanks for reading this post and have an average day.
I feel average most of the time. The other day someone asked me how I was feeling…
… I said 4 out of 10, but I’ve felt lower.
That is the end. Oh yes, one more thing. Last night I rewatched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder. I enjoyed it as I haven’t watched that movie for many years, it is also incredible how much you miss when you watch something. It turns out to be quite a dark film, eccentric!
