Dear Freshers,

Welcome to the Freshers Edition of Advocate Magazine. I would first like to congratulate you on gaining a place at the University of Nottingham Law School and embarking on an exciting chapter of your life. Rest assured that these three – or four, if you are thinking of doing an exchange abroad – years will be the most fulfilling years of your life as you explore the plethora of opportunities that university has to offer. The Freshers Edition is written precisely to get you a head-start on exploring what law school has to offer.

In this edition you will find introductions to the various law modules and how best to approach the academic rigour that is law. You will also find an introduction to the various law societies and how to get involved, as well as insights on other aspects of legal education.

Here at Advocate we seek to engage the diversity of student voice on wider issues of law. We believe that a fulfilling legal education must be well informed by an interplay of societal and economic understanding and an awareness of how law is connected to current events. We welcome your opinions and we have accepted articles from all students on a wide range of topics. If you would like to write an article on a particular topic, or attend an event and write about it, we encourage you to communicate with us and we will aid you if at all possible.

If you are wondering how you can contribute to Advocate, both as a writer and a team member, please contact us at [email protected].

Finally, we would like to thank all our contributors for their support. We look forward to your contribution!

Best wishes for the upcoming academic year.

Best Regards,

Trina Tan
