The University of San Diego School of Law, Fordham Law School, and our partner institutions invite you to join us for a special program on parenting and caretaking while in law school.  Parenting or caretaking, while simultaneously attending law school, presents a host of unique challenges for law students, and those challenges have only been compounded during the pandemic.  In this program Lauren Smith Brody, author and creator of The Fifth Trimester, will share strategies that will enable law school parents and caretakers to not just survive but thrive in law school.  

Brody will discuss strategies for:

  1. Working remotely with children at home, including:
    • Tactics for your productivity and mental health amid the chaos
    • Evidence-based ideas for protecting your kids' wellbeing
  2. Protecting and maintaining your equality -- at school and at home, through:
    • Solutions for guarding your time, business development, and future income
    • Plans for creating a fair division of labor in two-parent homes; and
  3. Negotiating now -- determining what we should keep from this temporary new normal by:
    • Helping our schools and workforce evolve in mutually beneficial ways
    • Contextualizing this moment in your larger career and for your future clients
