Welcome to the Law School Toolbox Podcast! Today, we're talking about thinking about the future and long-term goal setting in law school. Many people in their 30s and 40s look at their lives and wonder how they got there. Though it might seem far off when you’re in your 20s, it’s never too early to start thinking about what you might want your life to look like in the future, and to make the personal and career choices most likely to make that future a reality, or at least a possibility.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Determining the kind of work environment you want to work in
  • What's important to have time for in your personal life?
  • Factors to consider if you have or want to have a family
  • How your debt load can control your options and how to avoid the golden handcuffs
  • Learning from your past employment to make better choices for the future
  • The importance of educating yourself on these matters so you make informed choices
