LLB Convene Community

The key is in not spending time, but in investing it

Stephen R. Covey


LLB Community Events, with Megha Krishnakumar

The LLB Community pillar of Convene is a discussion space to bring together all undergraduate Law students in issues of student life and study skills. This will run parallel to your academic development under the Research and Reading groups offered through Convene. Fortnightly discussion forums will allow you to talk about your experiences at LSE, listen and learn from the experiences of your peers and hear from a number of student and staff guests with their tips and advice about making the most of the environment around you at LSE whilst supporting your own positive mindset and outcomes. Suggestions and feedback are always welcome!

LLB Community Events run every other Thursday from 3-4pm, beginning in Week 3 of Michaelmas Term. See below for the topics of each discussion session.

How can I make the most out of living in London on a budget?

 "Just look at me, I'm having the time of my life, Or something quite like it, When I'm walking out and about, In London's brilliant parade."

Elvis Costello

It's sometimes difficult to feel like you can engage fully with the environment around you in London when everything seems so expensive. Come along to share your experiences of things to do in the city that won't leave you out of pocket and to hear some hint and tips from your peers too.

 "A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms."

Reflections on a term online

"Instead of looking at the past, I put myself ahead twenty years and try to look at what I need to do now in order to get there then."

Diana Ross

With the first term online coming to an end, what key learnings have we had over the last few months? Going forward into Lent Term, let's discuss how we can capitalise on the positives and work our way over the obstacles we have faced this term.

Photography with Convene (LLB & LLM)

Photography is more important than ever before. In these challenging times, sharing photos helps to connect families, friends, colleagues and clients. Photography can make you see familiar surroundings in new ways and it can also motivate you to explore new places. With all this in mind, we are inviting you to get involved in our 'Photography with Convene' initiative, another way in which Convene is bringing LSE Law together this year.

more details about Photography with Convene

To mark the end of the first term of the Convene@LSELaw programme, we are delighted to announce the launch of our photography course. In the first two of this four part series, LSE photographer Guy Jordan takes you through features of the camera on your phone and explores how to compose great shots. The video lessons have been created exclusively for us by Guy – they are beautifully shot, inspiring, fun and promise to transform your photos.

Check out the first two videos on the Convene@LSE Law Moodle page and have fun with them over the forthcoming vacation, wherever you are in the world.  

We would love you to share your photos with us on instagram (#lselawconvene) or by email:  (see further details on Moodle about sharing your photos). And there’s more to come: photography lessons 3 and 4 follow in Lent Term 2021, as does the Convene ‘Zoom Out’ Photo Competition.
