Demystifies hot legal topics of the day!

This podcast breaks down some of the biggest issues of the day. It's totally accessible for non-lawyers, but sophisticated enough for lawyers. The host does a great job keeping the conversation moving.

Excellent

Dean Rodriguez hosts a great legal discussion on a variety of pertinent topics. Good for lawyers and non-lawyers alike.

Perfect for incoming 1Ls

I am an incoming 1L at Northwestern and this podcast has given me a great glimpse into what's to come this year. I love listening to the episodes that feature professors I will one day have. It's also a great way to bond with my husband and share some of what I'll be learning and experiencing in law school. So glad Planet Lex exists!
