Welcome to a mini-episode of The Geek In Review. Shot on location in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Law School Stress?? No Kidding!
This week, we continue our discussion on how law students can have a stressful time in the three years they are in law school. We can’t change what happens during law school, but we’ve asked some experts to tell us what they do to help law students reduce stress as they prep for finals, and what they can do to be successful as summer associates in law firms.
We finish our series about how law schools are reducing stress by hearing from the following schools:
- Howard University
- University of Hawaii
- University of Houston
- University of Wisconsin
- Georgia State University
- University of Texas
We appreciate these schools (and the ones from last week) taking the time to tell us what all they are doing to help students deal with finals.\
Hey Summer Associates… Listen Up!
We also talk with a number of AmLaw 100 firms about what their expectations are for how summer associates can have a successful tour of duty at their firms. Greg and Marlene were at a conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, and they asked a number of their fellow attendees what they do to help summer associates succeed, or what their expectations are for how law schools should prepare them for this work, and what they allow from outside vendors in regards for training as assistance during the Summers’ time at the firm.
We will say this to any law students who is listening…make friends with the law librarian. They will help guide you to success.
This Episode brought to you by… Greg’s iPhone
We recorded this entire episode on Greg’s iPhone. Thanks to all of the law schools and law firm librarians who took the time to talk with us as we were traveling in the desert. This has been a fun one, and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did recording it.
