inter collegiate LLM meet up (London)


amt233

Hi,

I was thinking it may be a fun idea to get together before our respective courses start. Hopefully, this will give us an opportunity to meet people attending other unis and help us settle in a bit socially. I was thinking sometime during the week of 20 Sept, which is the week before the start of term for most of us.

Please let me know if you're interested in attending, so I can get a provisional sense of numbers. Also let me know if you have any preferences for specific dates so I can try to accommodate while planning.

I also think this would be a fine! It could be a great opportunity to meet other people. And for me, the week of 20 Sept would be perfect. Maybe you could arrange something? That would be great!

Count me (and my fiancee) in. I'll also spread the word about and see if people'd like to jump in on it!

Great. Just trying to get a sense of how many people may be interested.

I am leaning towards midweek, to avoid weekend crowds. But everything is still up in the air and I will try to plan around people's schedules. Do any weekdays work for you, Tabmas08?

amt233, I will be in Northern Ireland from the 17th to the 23rd and that's why I suggested the weekend.
I guess we could try for the week of Monday the 27th?

We've got induction week starting on the 27th at UCL... and KCL will start classes on that same day (induction week will have already finished)... so any date from the 25th onwards I reckon will be kind of hard to accommodate... but anyway, let's see if people are really willing to come with like us... I've sent some PMs around but got no answer.

OK, noted. Just trying to get a sense of what works for different people in this thread. The week of the 27th is the beginning of term for most courses, which would be a significant caveat, but a manageable one. What does everyone else think?

Unfortunately, response has been a bit slow -- there's been a big drop in activity on LLM Guide in the past few months.

Yeah... and I'll probably slow down a little too 'cause it's my last day at work today and I am unlikely to login everyday now... I will try to stay away from computers over my holidays. But I will check up on the Guide every now and then.

Details!

Where: The Melton Mowbray pub on High Holborn (nearest tube: Chancery Lane)

When: Tuesday, 21 September at 7PM

Try to wear an article of clothing that says something about you or your past, like a cap or t-shirt from your past employer or school you attended. This will make it easier to identify the group. I hope it will also serve as an ice breaker and show what a diverse group we are.

Here's a link to the facebook event page. Please RSVP there if possible.
