Buyer’s Remorse

About 8 years ago, I made a massive purchase, a 6-figure purchase. I purchased my legal education. I wasn’t alone. Thousands of other graduates made the same purchase I made. Sadly, soon after graduating and entering the legal profession, many new lawyers, like myself, found themselves experiencing buyer’s remorse. They felt unprepared and uninspired.

I set out to find out why law schools and legal education are not meeting the needs and expectations of 21st century law students, lawyers, and society. What needs to change and who is leading that change?

My fabulous guests in this episode:

Kyle McEntee, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Law School Transparency, an organization looking to make entry to the legal profession more affordable, transparent, and fair.
