@LawVicissitudes is a Twitter account that was launched less than two months ago, but it is creating a huge following among British law students and legal minds all over the world.

The Twitter account is anonymous and has obtained over 4,000 followers. It is followed by bar review providers, such as BarExamInsider and Themis. It is followed by law students, attorneys, and law professors.


There are numerous retweets of its one-liners on what is in the heads of law students, such as:

“Accidentally using “prima facie” and “per se” in normal conversation.”

“Considering suing the law school for the psychiatric shock caused by the sheer amount of required reading.”

“’I love essays!’ Said no Law Student Ever.”

“’So, any plans for the weekend?’ Yes – Library :'(“

There is much speculation on who is behind the Twitter account, but the identity of @LawVicissitudes remains a secret.

@LawVicissitudes pokes fun at the lack of social life of law students:

“It’s Friday! Time to partyyyy!! Oh wait… I’m a law student :'(“

“Select Relationship Status: Single, In a Relationship, Married, In Law School.”

In law school, there is also the fear of being called on in class as @LawVicissitudes Tweets:

“Having an emotional breakdown because you can’t finish reading that never ending case.”

The law student has to grasp the proper legal terminology Tweets @LawVicissitudes:

“Can’t understand the Latin terms within legal principles I can’t understand.”

There is much to laugh at in the Tweets on the happenings during law school. In law school, students usually study a whole semester before having an exam. Sometimes, there may be only one exam that determines whether a student passes or fails a class.

In law school, there are few answers to many questions. Law students attempt to find perfection in an imperfect world. Law school is unlike math, where if you calculate long enough you can come to a solution. Law students have to try to find answers to problems when there are no correct conclusions.

Imperfections set the successful law student apart @LawVicissitudes Tweets:

“A good lawyer knows the law. A great lawyer knows the judge.”

The Tweets go to show that attempts to obtain high scores in law school exams may not necessarily lead to awards.  If a law student tries to make answers to exams “perfect” by spending hours, perhaps even months, researching rules in cases, spotting possible issues in practice tests, there may still be errors according to@LawVicissitudes:

“Why does Spellcheck think unconscionability is not a word?”

Sometimes a law student can even get the law wrong and end up passing an exam according to @LawVicissitudes:

“Highlighted the wrong line :'( Might as well highlight the whole paragraph.”

A law student who spends too much time on one issue misses out on points allocated to other issues when writing answers for exams.  Passing papers come from future lawyers who know how to prioritize as @LawVicissitudes Tweets:

“Not sure what’s cheaper per kilogram: Law textbooks or heroin?”

Candidates for the law degree who recite all the rules they know on a subject rather than well-chosen elements that relate to the facts may run out of time before finishing a question, according to @LawVicissitudes:

“Spent an hour reading a judge’s opinion. In dissent.”

In law school, unblemished answers may not be that beautiful when success does not require a perfect answer, but a passing answer as @LawVicissitudes Tweets:

“Fell asleep reading Land Law textbook. Dreamt about taking Land Law Exam in 1924.”
