That's how she knew she was getting the law right and did all the research she could as a baby attorney.

Love it!

This is by far my FAVORITE podcast. The ladies have gotten me so excited about Law school. I literally can not wait to experience everything they discuss. Such an informative and fun podcast. I highly recommend to everyone considering law school to listen, this podcast really drove it home for me that I’m meant to become a lawyer!

Purposeless ramblings

Learned more about how to succeed in law school during day 1 of law school orientation last year than anything LWLS have offered.

gunnoe_ya_know ,

One of the best podcasts I’ve listened to!

The Ladies Who Law School are kickass! I also listen to The Law School Toolbox and I have learned soooo much from all the ladies. As an entering 1L this fall, I can’t explain how much stress these two ladies have lifted off me just by telling their stories, being real, and being so helpful to future law students! Even tips and special guests about law school, bar exams/prep, and things like mental health and nutrition have kept me coming back each episode. I couldn’t be more grateful to have found this.

I love this podcast and I recommend it to everyone! Keep doing what y’all do!
