In this episode, I interview Shailini George about her experiences as a legal writing professor and the process of writing The Law Students’ Guide to Doing Well and Being Well. We also discuss how distraction addiction became an interest for her. The conversation includes Shailini’s thoughts on how law students should use wellness practices to improve their law school experience, as well as some tips for law students to get into the studying zone.
The Jabot podcast is an offshoot of the Above the Law brand focused on the challenges women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and other diverse populations face in the legal industry. Our name comes from none other than the Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the jabot (decorative collar) she wore when delivering dissents from the bench. It’s a reminder that even when we aren’t winning, we’re still a powerful force to be reckoned with.
