Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! In this episode, we talk about how to do your research when you first encounter difficulties at school or at work, and then how to approach your professor/TA/mentor if you are still stuck. While generally no one likes to ask for help, sometimes that's the only resource that will help prevent a poor outcome.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why is it important to get help (sooner rather than later)?
  • What to think about when you first identify a problem
  • Best practices around asking for help in school
  • When you should ask for guidance at your internship or job
  • Identifying people to get help from at work
  • How to frame your request so that your professor or mentor will readily help you
