Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today we're sharing our suggestions for ways parents can help their kids in law school, keeping the balance of being supportive without being overbearing.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Talking with your child about what they would find helpful from you
  • Using the resources of the school, as well as outside help if needed
  • Understanding the law school grading curve
  • Lowering your expectations around holidays, especially those near exams
  • Special advice for parents who are lawyers themselves
  • Understanding that some degree of struggle is to be expected for both parents and students
