Lying in bed typing this while the law group chat is blowing up...feel like sleep is the last thing I should be doing.

How many hours of sleep did you get on average (exam & non-exam season) as a law undergraduate across the years? I understand it varies between individuals but I’m still curious.

Your work-life balance doesn't sound too great, if I'm being honest.

I used to get a normal night's sleep. I treated my degree like a job, and did roughly 9-5 for five days a week. Some weeks a bit more, some weeks a bit less depending on the workload and other commitments during the week like games and so forth. I never worked in the evenings, and certainly didn't feel 'bad' for not working every minute of the day.

# of hours of sleep is the worst way of measuring anything

4-6 hours when it was hot.

It is a bad move, though. You need your sleep to make sure you're at peak performance. And you need to do other things to make sure you look at your work with fresh eyes, and generally for your mental well-being.

Lol, not even going to argue with that. I think it's mostly my commitments that are draining me out, really overestimated myself. Came back from a meeting at 9:30pm and everyone else's basically halfway through the reading.

Thank you for making me smile at 12am. We were warned by 2 lecturers about it today, is it really that bad?

Are you a first-year law student?

Edit: There's nothing wrong with being a creepy sex-deprived law student who latches onto anyone who's even remotely attractive x

Some people actually like it. It’s very ‘boxy’ if you know what I mean. In other words, it’s boring as fūck. But we all have to do it. It’s often a good time to have a little sleep behind your hair (mainly girls only) or get that Ocado shop finished.

First yr in UK, 2nd yr back at my old uni.

And u are absolutely correct, law students are humans too. Who am I to judge.

Aye, found 80% of land incredibly boring. Easements, leases, covenants were all pretty straightforward.

Mortgages, adverse and constructive trusts are bad, bad, bad. Nope. I didn't touch CT for equity either.

constructive trusts are literally the sexiest bit in equity tho

(said Johan the r*tard as he realised that he was reading some article on CTs at 2:23 am on the Monday before term had even begun)

The fact it was on about wives contributing to family homes (as an intro) was enough to put me off.

I did a little about the wider role of unconscionability which included CT, but tbh I don't think I even read the CT chapter in me textbook

tbf I didn't do any theory on my first run through equity so it was just a matter of knowing what the law said and where it was a wee bit uncertain

now I'm regretting it

**** Birks btw

Aye, I think that "facts" to principle approach wastes too much time. Should be all principle. I personally never did too much of unjust, until master's -- probably should go over that (and CT) before I lose me westlaw sub.
