Letters of the Law aims to promote positivity in the legal fraternity through the power of story. We see how law school can be a pressure cooker that strips the motivations into motions. We see the powerful but misleading mindset that the best people are immune to mental, physical, and emotional strain. We see how difficult it is to shake off the gripping fear that how well we do now will be how well we do forever.
We want to change that.
Letters of the Law is meant for law students: those who feel like they're running on empty, those who just need a respite mid-race, and every shade in between. It is not a solution, but a tool - a first step. Our greatest successes happen when the stories within our pages help you get over one night, one challenge, one fear. We hope our stories start conversations that will give you encouragement and inspiration, from the top of the legal professional chain, to those just beginning, to those who decided to pursue paths elsewhere. And by starting conversations, we hope to strengthen our community - from the inside, out.
Grace is a criminal lawyer. She loves hand-written letters, fresh flowers, and English Breakfast tea (with milk, please). If she were a fictional character, she would probably be Emma Woodhouse. Her MBTI personality type is INFJ.
Amelia works in a legaltech startup. Her colleagues often joke that her only interests are legaltech and Ed Sheeran. The reality is that she also enjoys (in no particular order): tinkering with her film camera once in a while, riding GrabBikes when travelling around Southeast Asia and working on side projects like Letters of the Law.
Gideon will finish his training and (fingers crossed) be called to the bar in August 2019. He spends too much time analyzing movies and tv shows. He has an unhealthy fascination with stories and their telling. His favourite joke is about his complicated fear of overdeveloped buildings: it’s a complex complex complex complex.
