    Welcome back! Today, we’re excited to have as our guest the founder of Financial Panther, a personal finance blog created for young professionals. Kevin paid off all his law school loans in a little over two years and has a lot of insight into how to stay financially grounded once you enter the legal profession.

    In this episode, we discuss:

    • How Kevin paid off his law school loans so quickly
    • The impact of scholarship offers on law school decisions
    • Calculating how much debt you can really take on
    • Living like a student after you’ve started making money
    • How to work the side-hustle in and after law school
    • Common financial mistakes students and young lawyers make
    • Giving yourself some financial breathing room to prepare for the uncertainties of life
    • Assessing competing financial priorities and decisions when you first enter the workforce
    • Is law school really worth it, financially speaking?
