Welcome back! Today we're talking about what incoming law school students should be doing or thinking about this summer to get ready for law school (if anything!).

Before you go overboard and pre-read supplements for every class, stop! Take a breath, and use our strategies to get ready for your first year of law school in style, without ruining your whole summer. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Lee and Alison share their experiences getting ready for law school
  • Finding housing that fits your lifestyle and needs
  • Thinking about your creature comforts
  • What do you really need to buy? (It's less than you think!)
  • Why you may not want to run out and buy a new laptop right away
  • Preparing the people in your life for your new law school life
  • Setting boundaries for loved ones 
  • The right way to leave your current job
  • What academic preparations do you need to make?
  • What supplements should you read (and which ones not to)?
  • Why it's important to start thinking about your legal career now, before school starts


Thanks for listening!
