Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking about how to bounce back after making a significant mistake -- one of those school, career, or personal screw ups that sometimes can be a major headache -- and what steps to take to ensure it doesn't happen again.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Assessing whether the mistake really is as big a deal as it appears at first
  • Looking at how famous people, such as politicians, deal with their own faux pas
  • Common scenarios where something can go wrong at school or work
  • How owning up and taking responsibility will go a long way to repairing the damage
  • Taking specific steps to make sure the mistake doesn't happen again
  • Where to look for help if you feel like you've made a mistake in your personal life
