It is almost over!
It feels like this semester just started but somehow I find myself a month or so away from the end of teaching, how on earth did that happen? I have my doubts as to whether we will be able to cover all the material in our syllabus for some of my modules though. I almost feel as though we have not done enough...strange but true.
It is however a time when I start to think seriously about doing an LLM and where it has gotten me. I truly do feel that this LLM brought me closer to what I want to do and the areas of law that actually interest me. HOWEVER (you know there has to be one because I am a law student after all), I find myself in a strange twilight-zone in relation to the job market. Now that I have gotten to such a high level in my study of law in such a specific area I feel like there are certain jobs I will do and others where I would just feel over-qualified. Does that make sense, or is that just me over-thinking and over-reaching as to just how much more qualified I am?
The timing of an LLM is also a weirdly vital issue. I will not get my results until sometime in November it seems and this is unhelpful for deadlines and pursuing further study. As happy as I am with my choice to do an LLM and especially the modules I picked, I feel strangely unsatisfied and unsettled, as if this course has left me in a more precarious situation than when I started????
Anyway, if I have time to over think everything this much, I have time to study more and hopefully ace these deceptively fast-approaching exams. Not to mention that I have to relearn French and possibly a whole other language to boost my self-esteem. I met someone who spoke 4 languages the other day, 4! Just English as a language doesn't cut the mustard anymore!
Oh and I should probably mention that London Fashion Week is going on right next door to King's Strand Campus, can you say distraction?
