Many of us lawyers didn't have it all figured out from the start. It takes time to find your way in your legal profession. This podcast sheds light on some of the challenges that lawyers face in the earliest part of building their careers. Each week, our host, Anjie Vichayanonda, sits down with members of the legal profession, to chat about the paths they took to get where they are now, including the times they stumbled, the times they fell, and the times they needed a little help. To encourage candor, the attorney guests remain nameless, but their stories are laid bare for your consideration. From time to time, Anjie invites prospective and current law students to join the show as a guest host so that they can practice their interviewing skills and connect with lawyers.

This podcast is produced by Leg Up Legal, which provides a mentoring mobile app and curriculum to connect prospective law students to attorney mentors and teaches them how to build their first professional relationships. For more information about Leg Up Legal, please visit:

Hello listeners! My name is Brooke, and I'm an undergraduate student at Oklahoma State University. I'm majoring in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and planning to apply to law school this fall. I'm interning for Leg Up Legal and I'll be today's guest host for The Law Lives Project. This week's guest had a rough start to law school due to a bad relationship, but managed to find her way. She got exposure to law by working for a jury consulting company and she decided to continue working for that company and go to law school part-time. After law school, she started working for an insurance defense law firm, and she utilized the early years of her career to explore lots of different practice areas and practicing different law firms. Eventually, she found her way in-house and she primarily focuses on regulatory practice in consumer finance. Listen to the episode to hear all of the ups and downs of her career.
