Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're discussing some warning signs suggesting you might need extra help in law school, and talk about why seeking help is a sign of strength and not a weakness.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why sometimes even good students start to struggle in law school
  • "Good confusion" versus "bad confusion"
  • Tracking your hours and allocating time to deep work
  • Why midterms are a blessing, not a curse
  • The importance of testing yourself in the same format as your final exam
  • Signs that you are probably doing fine
  • Red flags indicating you might need extra help
  • Getting special accommodations due to any learning differences 
  • Why reaching out for help is a great idea
