From across the pond, Darren Sylvester of Interalialegal.com is featured in today’s Postcard from the Bar Exam.
I was Called to the Bar in 2003, after graduating from University of Essex (LL.B.) and the Inns of Court School of Law, City University, London. While I had a good time at law school, it was also lots of reading and many things to prepare for the next day (advocacy exercises, opinions, etc…) In regards to preparing for the Bar, I mostly remember I used to work until late in the evenings, get by on a few hours sleep and start all over again, and again, and again… that and highlight and summarise key points and then revise them thoroughly. I went through lots of highlighter pens (I lost count)!
