Episode Notes

This week Sam and Aaron discuss the effectiveness of meditation as a way for lawyers to relieve stress, shake our heads at the technological incompetence of LegalTech attendees, and Sam interviews Alison Monahan of the Girls Guide to Law School.

During Jeena Cho’s recent webinar, over 400 attendees went from 97% being very stressed to the reverse after a short meditation. If you want to know more about meditation and mindfulness and how it can help lawyers, see Jeena’s previous posts on Lawyerist.

For this week, Sam interviewed Alison Monahan of the Girls Guide to Law School about what success means in law school now that law jobs are scarce, and how law students and new graduates can best adapt to the current legal market.
