Welcome back! Today we are sharing tips for the non-traditional law students out there. If you're getting ready for law school, this episode is going to be one you definitely want to flag! There is great stuff in here that even full-time, more traditional law students can learn from as well.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • People who might be considered “non-traditional” law students
  • Balancing school and other obligations, including work and family
  • Financial challenges unique to non-traditional students, and resources to help alleviate the stress
  • Getting used to being in an academic environment after a break
  • The advantages non-traditional students may have over traditional students
  • Having a master calendar for all areas of your life, and how to prioritize based on degree of urgency
  • Learning how to utilize your “village” for help – and it’s okay to ask for help!
  • Culture shock for those who are the first in their families to go to college or graduate school
