035: What Extracurricular Activities Matter in Law School?

Welcome back! Today we are discussing extracurricular activities in law school. You may be tempted to focus exclusively on studying and maintaining your grades, but extracurricular activities can help break up the monotony of law school and bolster your resume for the future. Do too many, however, and you might flunk out! As with many things, balance is key for a successful law school experience. This episode explores what's available, and offers suggestion on where to most productively spend your time.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The most common law school extracurricular activities which might be worth your time
  • Ways to make less than stellar grades look more impressive
  • Whether you should join Law Review or a different law journal
  • The ins and outs of moot court
  • Different types of competitions that might be of interest
  • Clubs, Community Involvement, and Other School-Related and non-School-Related Activities
  • Lee and Alison share their thinking about which extracurriculars they opted to do in law school 

Thanks for listening!
