122: How to Transfer Law Schools (with Mihal Ansik)

Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox Podcast! Today we're talking about transferring law schools after your 1L year. There are many different reasons why a law student might apply for a transfer, but in any case, you’ll have to go through the application process – again – and that takes thought and effort. Our special guest is Mihal Ansik, who graduated from Harvard Law School as a transfer student, and currently works to provide legal services and education tools to women working to reunify with their children and families after incarceration. She has great insight into the transfer process, so if you are considering transferring, tune in!
