006: Lessons Learned About Learning

Today we’re excited to be discussing one of our very favorite topics – Learning! I know you’re shocked that this is a topic we find interesting…but we do. Especially right now, when Alison is living in Mexico trying to learn Spanish and Lee is watching her one-year-old son learn new stuff every day.


We’re pretty convinced that the lessons from learning a language, or learning to walk, apply equally to learning in law school!


Here's what's discussed in this episode:

  • How do children approach learning, and what can we learn from them?
  • What's it like learning another language, and how do these lessons apply to law school?
  • Why you need to do the things that make you uncomfortable to really learn effectively
  • Why being smart isn't enough (Hint: You still have to work hard)
  • What we can all learn from Brene Brown about learning (love her!)
  • Practical ways to develop your learning resilience


If you like the Law School Toolbox podcast, we're really appreciate an iTunes review and/or rating. And if you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Lee and Alison at or or you can always contact us via our website contact form at
