Episode Notes

“If you look around at many of the general counsels in this country, they are not from the top ten law schools. They did not graduate from the top 10% of their class. But they have the moxy. They will dig in.” – Paulette Brown

Surviving law school is difficult enough, but law students also need to be thinking about how to best prepare themselves for the future. What should we be doing now to ensure we succeed as lawyers after graduation? In this episode of the ABA Law Student Podcast, Fabiani Duarte and Madison Burke talk with Paulette Brown, current president of the American Bar Association, about her path through law school, advice she has for current law students, and legal initiatives she thinks might really interest young lawyers. Tune in to hear what qualities Ms. Brown would look for when hiring a lawyer who had just passed the bar.
