The Law Student’s Creed
Updated: Jun 10
Should you choose to be a law student,
May your university experiences be not unreasonable
May you sleep well, eat well and socialise too!
And may you manage to get acceptable grades.
May your highlighters be numerous and overflowing
May you have the funds to purchase, and the strength to carry your textbooks.
May your templates be perfectly crafted and comprehensible
And may your word counts be met, but not exceeded.
May your coffee be potent and plentiful
May your SWOTVACs be long and productive
May you abide by IRAC and survive time limits and hand cramps
And may your hurried handwriting be legible.
May your family and friends not exhaust your legal knowledge
May you exercise your advocacy skills in moot
May you master the AGLC by the time you graduate
And may your clerkship opportunities be not in shortage.
May your prospects of graduation be beyond reasonable doubt
May you be prepared to account for six-minute intervals in your days
May you have the opportunity to argue in the High Court
Or better still, may you one day sit on the bench.
