Season 2/Episode 4: Life From the (Law School) Frontlines
Oct 07, 2020 Season 2 Episode 4
Rachael Andersen-watts, Chris Meyers, Cat Moon

Cat, Chris and Rachael talk to two law students from Vanderbilt about how this COVID year is treating them so far. Lindsey is a 1L and Olivia a 3L. Lindsey is here in Nashville, masked up, studying hard, and dreaming of a day when she can sit in the law library. Olivia is doing school remotely, two time zones away, all the while participating in student leadership and keeping up with law school friends. While their experiences differ, both want the same thing: educational and social value for the time (and money!) they are spending on law school. And both are making it happen (while thinking about how we could keep on improving).

It’s a weird, wild world, and no planning or life hacking can make the hardships disappear. Tenacious, reflective and conscientious students like Lindsey and Olivia demonstrate that law school during a pandemic is anything but simple, and (most of the time) worth it nonetheless.

At the top, Chris and Rachael go over the thorn-bud-rose of the week. We give our words of gratitude and grief over the loss of SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, suggest a helpful summary of what this whole “bar-maggedon” (aka “barpocalyse”) is about for our bud, and we end by celebrating the rose of making it through this semester so far.
