Zooming Through Law School
Season 2/Episode 2: Zoom Mocktails, Anyone?
Sep 02, 2020 Season 2 Episode 2
Rachael Andersen-watts, Chris Meyers, Cat Moon

It’s always wine-o-clock somewhere when you have law school Zoom classes with people around the world. But should you indulge in a quiet glass of Sauv Blanc, and maybe some pithy Etsy tea towels to really commit to this life of a semi-shut in law student? Or, do you need to reduce or avoid alcohol intake in order to stay healthy? There is no one-size-fits-all answer. And there is definitely no universal taste in tea towels (but Rachael likes this one a lot). There are, however, realities we all need to reckon with. Namely: law students statistically suffer from mental health issues and substance abuse at a far greater rate than the general public. What does that mean for you in this particular time of heightened stress on so many fronts?

Cat, Chris and Rachael talk to author, speaker, lawyer, recovery coach and podcast host Lisa Smith about her life as a recovering high-functioning alcoholic. Lisa brings her own story to bear as an enlightening, personal entry point to a frank discussion on how law students can take care of themselves as they live, study and adjust to life during a pandemic.
