  • Personal favourite: Chapter 13 Identity, well-being and law students

  • This Chapter illustrates how past, present and future identities affect law students’ sense of self and implications for well-being. By explaining how our social interactions and pre-university experiences could influence our present identities, this chapter delineates why law students always suffer immense stress. If you sometimes wonder why you tend to follow the herd and are constantly anxious that you are not as good as others, this chapter might provide some insights for you.
