Any views expressed in the articles on the website are mine and I do not take any responsibility for views and comments expressed by other individuals. My views are opinions only and they should not be treated like sources of educational information (you got textbooks for that!) or proper sources of information. What I mean is, should I be talking about an event coming up, I cannot guarantee it is happening or it is open for any individual - you need to check the third party's website / leaflet / promotion to check the information I am providing is correct.

My views and my articles and anything you can find on my website is my intellectual property:

If you would like to take any material from my website and post it on a third party's website you need to reference my website;

If you would like to quote me in a published document, you need to get my permission first. Please contact me if that's the case.


When you become a registered user, you need to provide the following information:

  • your full name;
  • e-mail address;
  • password*.

These will remain confidential and other users will not be able to see this information. The information you will provide will enable the admin to assess whether you are a real individual or a spammer. Please wait till the admin approves your profile before attempting to log in. This might take a day or two.

* Create a new password for your account on Lawyer2Be.com and do not provide the password for your e-mail account. For safety reasons you should not be using the same password for you e-mail account and accounts on third party websites and indeed my website.

When you become a registered user you will be able to get an e-mail when a new blog has been pubished, a new voting poll has been placed for the public vote or there is something exciting I want to tell you. This will enable you to save time as you will get updates on your e-mail and you won't have to manually browse and look for new articles.


Any posted comment has to be approved by the admin. Please wait for at least 24 hours in order to see you comment. I do promise that the admin will be working hard and they should be approved a lot faster than 24 hours! However, since there are horrendous quantities of spammers and other nasty individuals who cannot control their verbal diarrhoea for example, precautions are essential.

You are a registered user but you still can't see your comments:

If you are a registered user, your comments also need to be approved unfortunately for the same reasons as above. Please read 'Creating an account on Lawyer2Be.com' to find out which advantages you will have when you register with Lawyer2Be.com.


'docendo discimus' is my motto for this website. It is a Latin proverb which means 'We learn by teaching'. I chose this motto because it goes very well with the idea of the Lawyer2Be.

I hope I will be a good guide for the readers embarking on their journeys to become lawyers and that it will be a great way for all of us to learn from each other, share our experiences and become successful.
