    From High School Dropout to Harvard Law: Founding a Venture-Backed Legal Tech Startup

    At the age of 14, Jake Sussman dropped out of high school with no clear plan for his future. By the age of 20, Jake was already taking his first class at Harvard Law School. While at Harvard, Jake worked at/received offers from two top 3 consulting firms, a top 10 law firm, and a venture-backed legal tech startup. In this live interview, Jake talks about his unique path getting to where he is now, addressing questions including how he thinks artificial intelligence and machine learning impact the legal world, how working at a consulting firm compares with a big law firm, and why he considered dropping out of Harvard Law School. Hope you enjoy this interview. If you have any questions or concerns, you may email me at BeforeYouTaketheLSAT@gmail.com

Don_Pvblo ,

I listen to this podcast every day

This is really well made! The questions are always relevant and it’s easy to listen. Some very good conversations that IMO are worth listening if you’re preparing or taking the LSAT.

I couldn’t find a way to send feedback but could you start asking the guests at what time they took they’re LSAT? Ex. At the beginning of their junior year of undergrad or the summer after graduating.

Keep up the good work!
