Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast. Today we're running through your mid-semester to-do list to ensure you're where you need to be before it's too late.

Mid-semester is the time when reality sets in for most law students. Whatever is going on - midterms, sniffles, boredom - it's time to focus on the end goal and get serious about preparation. Here's what you need to be doing, now.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How you should handle the next 7-8 weeks
  • The importance of deep work in the second half of the semester
  • Setting up your study calendar
  • Getting ready for finals
  • Ways of tracking your time if you're not sure how it's slipping away
  • Searching for a summer job as a 1L (you can start Dec. 1)
  • Avoiding distractions and battling procrastination
  • How to do a self check-in
  • Where to go for help
  • Stress management techniques and staying healthy
  • How to manage your personal relationships, especially around the holidays and exams
