    Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox Podcast. Today, we're talking about going to law professors' office hours and getting something out of it. Lots of law students say they're going to go to office hours regularly, but few actually do. Developing good relationships with your professors will not only have a positive effect on your law school success, but may prove to be valuable for years to follow. So tune in, and learn to love office hours!

    In this episode, we discuss:

    • Why some students are hesitant to go to office hours
    • Reasons why going to office hours is beneficial
    • Ways to make office hours less intimidating and more useful
    • How office hours in law school differs from undergrad
    • Things you might talk about when you visit your professors
    • Questions to avoid asking
    • Other ways to interact with your professors if you are unable to make it to the scheduled office hours
    • Don’t forget about your TAs!
