Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're unpacking some of the "standard" topics when it comes to getting ready to start law school, and we'll also look at how the coronavirus is affecting incoming students' plans this year.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Do you need to learn any law before classes start?
  • Should you be putting together a study group already?
  • What else can you do to "get ahead" this summer?
  • Housing, food, and other life logistics for 1Ls
  • Preparing the tech equipment you'll need for school
  • Complications caused by the COVID-19 shutdown for incoming law students
  • Staying mentally and physically healthy
