Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking about what to do – and what not to do – the summer before law school.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Specific things you can do to prepare for starting law school
  • What to think about if you're going to be moving
  • How much substantive law should you try to learn over the summer?
  • Should you try to meet classmates before orientation?
  • What type of clothes do you need?
  • Writing a letter to yourself about why you want to go to law school
