Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we have ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones with us to talk about managing your schedule as a summer associate, intern, or extern.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What should be your goal as to the amount of work you take on at your summer job?
  • How to figure out how long a task should/will take
  • Structuring your work day to ensure you're working efficiently
  • Under what circumstances should you just say "no," and how can that be done gracefully?
  • Some common roadblocks to working efficiently for interns and young lawyers
