Five-hundred page textbooks are almost an essential for every law student. You start to accumulate something of a collection reminiscent of your five-year-old's self encyclopaedia collection. After two years, your textbook collection is worth almost $500-$1,000 (depending on whether you’re buying new or used). Despite being one of the “required textbooks”, they often get left behind, catch our tears and food crumbs and allow us to aggressively highlight, underline and tab them.
The holidays are a time of giving. Law students are a particular type of people. Curious, hard to read, picky, laden with strange habits and somewhat arrogant. This makes gift-giving for us particularly difficult. If you don’t have a few thousand dollars to spare to help your law school buddies pay off their law degree, try these other gift ideas.
The results are in. Four years of paper cuts, sweat, tears, highlighters and sticky tabs later, your law degree is complete.
While most of us were flailing our way through Foundations of Law at 18-years-old, Jozef Borja-Erece was busy becoming the youngest person to graduate from the University of Southern Queensland when he graduated with a law degree. His Wikipedia page names him as the ‘youngest solicitor in the Southern Hemisphere and the youngest law graduate in Australian history.’ Those aren’t the only titles Jozef claims as the ‘youngest’. At the age of 13, he also became the youngest taekwondo instructor in New Zealand. #Overachiever.
