Great resource for first-gen students

Alison and Lee cover a range of topics, from how to prepare for 1L to "triage"-ing before finals, to the annual job search, to early career advice. Guests are mostly helpful and engaging. The hosts take a pragmatic approach to law school, giving actionable advice on how to achieve the ends you're looking for.

Some topics and anecdotes get repeated multiple times, but I imagine that the assumption is that just because you're listening to episode 197 doesn't mean you've listened to the 196 episodes that came before.

Overall, I feel much more prepared for 1L and law school in general after listening through most of their episodes and seeking out some of the resources they recommend.

So helpful!

I’ve listened to a few episodes as i prepare to take the LSATs and all the information is super helpful whether i learn something new or just feel better about a certain thing. The covid episode on the flex LSAT was sent straight from Jesus because I’m taking it in July and it is a flex exam. Thank you for covering this!!

Valuable information

So far I’ve listened to two of these podcasts, one on interviewing and one on law of homicide for exams. As a practicing lawyer, I wish I had access to this type of information, tutoring, and mentoring. This is great stuff.
