What was the experience(regarding your achievements) like?: Exciting, and rewarding.
They were all challenging, but for the most part I had very reliable partners I'm very grateful for.
Researching for all these whilst also reading for tests/exams was a bit tough, but by GODS grace I was able to pull through.
An advice for law students:
Trust GOD, do what you love and have fun.
Having a balanced life as a law student is often seen as a myth, but the truth is adequate planning is really all that's required.
Its not just enough to slave in the library to make a good grade, you have to ensure you are multidimensional,
You have to ensure you build yourself, in legal research, writing, public speaking etc because you can not possibly escape these in the real word.
And opportunities abound for you to improve yourselves.
Join an association, try your hand at public speaking, write an essay for a competition. Whatever you can to build yourself, Just do it.
Also hold on to GOD, you're going to be glad you did.
