    For anyone watching this can I just say it is very very different in different states of Australia to go to uni, I live in victoria and you get an atar as a result of year 12 exams which is a percentage of your state. E.g if I got an atar 90 I am in the top 10 percent of the state. And theres more confusing stuff but oml don’t have the time to go into that.

    The ending part of this video was spot on! I feel as if you were literally speaking to me. I am finish with school in three months and I feel as if I don’t deserve anything tbh. I want to go to law school after and I keep telling myself that I am not smart enough.

    All I can say is thankyou. As an African-Australian in my last year of law imposter syndrome has been a major thing for me. Thanks. Thanks.Thanks. Bless you.

    In the UK after a law degree you do the LPC (this will change in 2020) which qualifies you to be a solicitor, that takes a year. Then the traditional route would be to get a training contract at a firm which lasts two years then you'll be a fully trained solicitor. It's interesting to see what it's like in Australia.

    Hey Georgie, I'm a law student going to apply for a job in America. Do you mind sending me a copy of the letter, just to show me what tone the letter struck?

    Yasss!!!! You’re Australian!!!! I just finished watching your day in the life and I was trying to figure it out. Yasss!!!! I’m in Melbourne and in my penultimate year and I am trying to foresee what the next two years will be like.

    I’m so excited I found your channel. I’m planning on starting my PLT in December next year so I’m done by March the following year. Wohooooo!!!!! You’ve got a stalker now. ❤️❤️❤️😂😂

    You’re amazing! I’ve just watched your ‘day in the life’ video.
    How old are you?
    I’m 35 & have just started a bridging course at the Newcastle uni. I’m currently looking at degrees in law & business.

    I’m currently at second year law/criminology student in NSW and this video honestly has helped me so much! So thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Especially the last question! I certainly feel like i’ve been having imposter syndrome since I started! I’m a lot like how you described yourself like with assignments and stuff and there are no words to describe how much better I feel about what i’m Doing and just myself in general after watching this! It’s great to watch and listen to someone who speaks openly and honestly about this area of work and what it takes! Thank you so much! Keep up the amazing vids ❤️❤️

    Only just found your channel and I'm kicking myself because I love it and you!!
    I'm in my graduate diploma of legal practice (PLT) in South Australia right now so by the end of the year fingers crossed I will be admitted!!
    Super stressed for finding work though! I didn't do any clerkships as I studied intensively to finish my undergrad quicker. Biggest regret!

  • Sarah Quinn -

    can you do outfits of the week for business professional look?! Love that you mentioned that you have to work hard for things because thats SO me too !!

    Hearing how the system works in Australia makes it sound easy to me but I don't mean to insult you by any means, law is hard one way or another. But the system here is so different and so crazy. You are in a law faculty of a university for 5 years, in those 5 years you have after 3 – years bachelor thesis defense and state examination then you have to apply again and after those another 2 years you have the defense of the diploma thesis and yet again state examination. You are not done there if you want to have that 'doctor of law' title you have to do the defense of rigorous work and examination. After that if you wanna become a solicitor or as we call it an advocate you have to do 5 years of legal practice and that's just nuts to me that I signed up for that knowing I'll be basically someone's girl for everything for 5 years. And after those 5 years you can apply for a bar exam, which is a deal breaker because you have only limited time to prepare for it and they don't just give it like that. And then you are finally done at the age of 28 to 30 usually, starting your life from point zero again.

    I think it depends on what area of law…black/white/highly structured is a superficial explanation. I'd say it is the opposite, a good lawyer sees the grey and can work their way around a mess.

  • Chris Wood -

    Thank you so much! So many people feel not good enough to follow their dreams, but you just made it clear that hard work and perseverance makes anything possible 😊

  • Jennifer Chiu -

    Hey Georgie, I think you're really inspiring and you show that hard work can really get you places, not just by being 'naturally smart'. I really resonate with that. Just discovered you recently but I'm already loving your content! xx

    This was interesting to watch and congrats on almost being a lawyer! You are very persistent and I think that is one of the qualities we need to survive in the legal profession. In the US, the market has been volatile so finding internships, jobs and opportunities as a lawyer is not guaranteed. Many lawyers have been unemployed and some went to other professions. I took 1 year off after my undergraduate degree and worked as a project assistant at a law firm. I then went to law school (3 years), graduated with no job, worked in non-profit legal fellowships, worked solo as an in house lawyer for a startup tech company, then finally started working at a small corporate firm. It has been a journey, but having other interests (wellness, civic service, faith) and awesome friends/family has kept me grounded.

    This was a good video, but I think you should have done some more research before saying things.. OP’s are about to be ruled out and QLD will go to the same system as NSW.
    Also to be a doctor you can’t go straight from high school to university to be a doctor.
    You need to do a bachelor of something first and maintain a GPA of 5 throughout your undergraduate and then apply to medicine!

    I LOVE how you are in love with fitness and taking care of yourself but that it also isn't the ONLY thing that takes up time in your life! I love how you balance fitness with real life jobs and things. Not everyone can make fitness their whole life without having a proper job, and I love how you divide your time so realistically!

    I'm a law grad from Ukraine, and the process is almost the same. Only we have 5 and a half years instead of 4. So you graduate high school, then you have 4 big independent exams on different subjects (usually English, our native language Ukrainian, Ukrainian or world history and math). You have to pass every exam on at least 120 out of 200 and then you can apply to university to study law. You study for 4 years (bachelor's degree), then we pass an exam which consists of 10 subjects and about 500 questions (these subjects are: logic, English, civil law and process, criminal law and process, administrative law and its process, European law, and family law) Again, you have to score at least 120 out of 200 on each of these or you failed. And if you passed those, then you have 1,5 years of your Master's degree. You would think that's it, but nope, it's not. If you want to be a solicitor you have to get through 6 months of a very expensive PLT, aaaaand then you have to pass a qualification exam in a Supreme Court. I'm finishing my 4th year, wish me luck;)
