Introduce yourself here- March edition
It’s March and high time for a new introductions thread. Each month we create a new post to help members new and old get to know each other with some simple questions. They're designed to take less than 5 minutes to answer. Personally, I always find the answers very informative. Help us break the ice and get to know you a little better:1. What is one fiction book that you recommend everyone adds to their reading list? 2. If all goes to plan-where do you see yourself in 5 years time? 3. Everyone is talking about AI these days. Do you think AI will be a help or a hindrance to the legal profession?
Introduce yourself here-February 2023 edition
As is tradition- each month I ask members new and old to introduce themselves by answering a few simple questions. Here’s our questions for February: How long have you been working in the legal sector and what inspired you to start? What historical case would you see in person and why? You’ve been given a time machine, it can only travel to courts, tribunals or similar places. What would you travel to see? For me it would be Lincoln’s first ever case. I’d love to see him in his early days, before he rose to greatness. More income or more free time? Choose one: Work exactly as much as you do now, but earn twice as much incomeor Work half as much for but earn the same income you earn now in that time?
Introduce yourself here- January 2023 edition
Happy new year everyone! We have a tradition here of creating a post each month for members new and old to get to know each other.It only takes a moment and is a great way to learn how to make a post in the community so that you’re familiar with the system when you need answers in a hurry. So- grab a cuppa (as we say here in Australia) and answer me these questions three: 1. How did you celebrate New Year’s eve? Were you fast asleep (like me), or wide awake? 2. Whether you're a fan of New Year’s resolutions or not; goal setting can be a powerful way to achieve the things that matter to you. Do you have any big goals or resolutions that you’d like to achieve this year?3. I’ve recently become fascinated with colloquialisms- or slang.What’s a slang term that you use that people outside your community might not have heard of? I look forward to reading your answers and learning a little more about you. p.s here’s the questions again without my rambling… hopefully that makes it a little e

Note: The reply button is at the end of the conversation so far, so you might need to do some scrolling in bigger threads like this one.
