Very Insightful on the Legal Profession
This is a must subscribe for those interested in pursuing a career in the legal field. Listening to the stories of women who have practiced a few years or decades is valuable to anyone in law school or thinking about it.
This is a great podcast no matter what your profession is.
Didn't think I was going like this podcast this much! The host has great questions and the conversations are very engaging. As an entrepreneur, I'm always trying to get in the head of CPAs and attorneys. Love their analytical minds! I would definitely say that this is, "hit that subscribe button" worthy.
