    Welcome back! Today, we’re talking with Keri Clapp, professor and tutor for the Law School Toolbox and Bar Exam Toolbox, about important considerations to keep in mind as you make the transition from undergrad to law school. Keri, who teaches at both the undergraduate and law school level, offers her unique perspective to help us bring to light the key differences so you know what’s in store.

    In this episode, we discuss:

    • Differences between undergrad and law school teaching methods, course materials, and study habits
    • How struggling with the material is normal and part of the learning process
    • What it means to “think like a lawyer”
    • Overcoming the initial resistance to, and awkwardness of, legal writing
    • Understanding social and lifestyle differences
    • Informational interviews and other ways to get a taste for what it’s really like to be a law student and a lawyer before you take the plunge
    • The importance of knowing yourself and your learning style
