Welcome to the Law School Toolbox Podcast! Today we're talking about building relationships in law school with everyone from professors to classmates and potential employers. Of course grades are important, but building relationships can not only make your law school experience more pleasant, it can open doors of opportunity in the future.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Why relationships matter
  • How to get to know your professors
  • Different opportunities to interact with your professors, in and out of the classroom
  • Developing relationships with your classmates
  • School activities and social outlets that foster meaningful interaction
  • Getting to know other people at your law school in administration or different programs
  • How to meet lawyers and non-lawyers in the community through bar association events, pro bono work, charity fundraising events, etc.
  • Finding mentors and sponsors
