Law School Students and the People Who Love Them

Everyone knows that law school takes a toll on students. The endless reading and studying. The professors who relish making students squirm. The pressure to get good grades.

Together, they create a very stressful experience for law students.

But what about the people who love law school students? What about the boyfriends and girlfriends, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers?

Believe it or not, they feel the pressure, stress and strain of law school, too.

The people who love law school students often have to take on extra duties at home. Many have to deal with tight family budgets as a result of tuition payments. And then there’s the time away from their loved ones, who are in class, studying or grabbing all the real-world legal experience they can.

Yes, law school is nearly as difficult on students’ friends and families as it is on students. That’s why schools offer programs designed to help parents, spouses, friends and even kids deal with the pressure.

These programs can help people understand that they’re not alone. They can provide access to programs that help address financial and emotional health issues. And the programs can help people understand what their loved ones are experiencing in law school–the stress, the grind, the constant pressure.

Yes, the programs are great. But there are things–little, easy things–that law school students can do to help their families. Here are three:

Communicate
With your mind on Contracts and your nose in a casebook, it may seem impossible to find time to talk to your loved ones. But the truth is, nothing is more important.

If you don’t tell your loved ones what your experiencing, they’ll never know–only people who have been through law school can truly understand the pressure.

Take a little time every week to tell them about your classes, how tough the professors are, and how you think you’re doing. It will be good for your loved ones, and it will be good for you, too.

Relax
Of course you’re driven to do well–you’ve always done well. But don’t forget to take a little time every now and then to relax. Your mind is a muscle. It needs to rest once in a while.

Do well
Really want to help your loved ones? Do well. Study hard. Hire a law school tutor. Get great grades. It will make you happy, which will in turn make them happy.
