Anonymous said: To be fair to the other anon, the "fine print" you speak of doesn't show up in your current blog theme. I can only see part of it, and only if I hover over your name in my dashboard. So you might want to fix that.

But isn’t the whole point of fine print is to make it obnoxiously hard to find and read? 

I do concede your point about my theme though. Too bad I can’t be arsed to change it at the moment.

Having recently drafted my own will and wills for my close family and friends, there are many succession issues to be considered here…

Do they have a will? Are there any problems with the will? What have they actually left you in the will? Does the estate have debts? Are there any family provision claims to be made by the ex-wife/mistress/illegitimate love child/cousin twice removed under the Family Provision Act?

Interacting with Judges outside of the Court environment and realising just how quirky, witty and human they are continues to be a shock to the law student in me.

I mean, these are people who make the law and who I had to write essays about… But are now complimenting me on my shoes and commenting on how hot some of the lawyers at the ceremony looked tonight.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

Giving legal advice to friends...

  • Friend: Are you sure I won't be sued even through I signed the contract????
  • Me: Just chill. There was a revocation. The contract has basically ended...
  • Friend: BUT...!! *Insert panicked rant*
  • (20 mins later)
  • Me: Look here, unless you are a secret millionaire, in which case I don't know why you're looking for free legal advice, you're not WORTH suing. People will always sue the deepest pockets. You are an unemployed grad! YOU ARE NOT WORTH THE TIME AND MONEY IT TAKES TO SUE YOU.
