Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast. Today we’re talking about grit - that quality that lets you get back up and carry on after you've been knocked down. And, every law student is probably going to get knocked down a time or two!

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why is grit important in law school? 
  • The harsh realities of law school
  • Why just being "smart" isn't enough any longer
  • Situations where you will need grit in law school
  • How will you handle the bumps in the road when they come? Do you have a plan?
  • Alison and Lee share stories of needing grit in law school
  • How mindfulness can be helpful in tough situations 
  • Whether grit can be cultivated
  • Activities that can help build your "grit"
  • The five characteristics of grit
