Twitter is a fantastic platform for law students. It isn’t as serious as traditional news outlets or platforms like LinkedIn. It is also very customisable, as you can choose who you receive content from.
A while ago I decided to make a second Twitter account dedicated to legal news. I already had a lot of politics and law on my page, and I decided that it would be best for my mental health as a student to separate these away from the memes and jokes; the political content can be disheartening at times and it’s so much better to only see it when I want to. This allows me to go to my day-to-day Twitter account when I’m having downtime, and gives me a constant source of legal news which I can check when I’m actually in the mood to read it. Here are my recommendations on which accounts to follow.
Joshua Rozenberg @JoshuaRozenberg is a lawyer and journalist who also hosts BBS Radio 4’s Law in Action podcast. He tweets and retweets breaking legal news stories from all areas of law, which will keep you informed on what’s happening, and will also engage with his followers from time to time, discussing the stories and pointing out the finer details of the law. He is a very well-respected and well-known member of the legal community, and his feed will help you stay abreast of the current news stories, potentially more than any other account on this list.
If you haven’t heard of The Secret Barrister @BarristerSecret, you’re in for a treat. They are an anonymous legal blogger turned twitter author, who provides a more lighthearted and funny view of the law, without sacrificing any serious analysis. Their focus is predominantly on legal aid and the poor reporting of legal stories in the old media. They constantly mock lax journalists who are misreporting stories, which is both satisfying and funny to watch, as well as other, more cheery ventures such as live tweeting a legal analysis of Legally Blonde and Blue’s ‘All Rise.’
