Resources for Law Students
Law school is a challenging time. Not only are you learning to “think like a lawyer”, you are immersed daily in a law school culture that aims, at least in part, to help mould you into “being a lawyer.” This would all be good if your only concern is thinking like a lawyer and fitting in with law students and lawyers, and if law had a healthy culture.
There are many legal workplaces with exemplary characteristics. Unfortunately, lawyers face mental health challenges and struggle to be happy. Law students mirror this.
Arm yourself with this knowledge, and thoughtfully plan how to take care of your mental health.
