Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today we're talking about handling toxicity in law school – whether it's bad behavior from your classmates or overbearing expectations from other people, including your parents, professors, friends, or even yourself.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Common sources of toxic behavior in law school – your parents, professors, classmates, and sometimes your friends
  • Consequences of too much toxicity – burn out, depression, and even substance abuse
  • How to handle the toxic behavior and its consequences and some possible resources to help you
  • Why one of the biggest sources of toxicity can be your own self-sabotaging behavior. We talk about how to identify it and give you some tips to deal with it.
