Location: Faculty Conference Room, Urban Life Building
Plamen Russev, Attorney and Personal Development Coach
Jonathan Ware, Attorney and Personal Development Coach
Even the most excited among us enter law school with the uneasy sense of any unknown difficulties ahead. Orientation and the first days of classes only confirm that we are now facing challenges we've never encountered before. And the intensity keeps rising the further along we go as we continue discovering that many of our tried and ture ways of managing life and stress no longer work.
This event is open to 1L students only; 2L and 3L students to meet on October 7. Lunch will be provided.
