“Law School Mom" Gives Advice to Parents Earning a J.D.

Wife. Mom. Daughter. Sister. Aunt. Friend. Law Student? Yes, a girl can have it all. Even if she wants to be a lawyer when she grows up. Law School Mom is a short and sweet documentary of mom, Hope Wood, her husband Geoff, and son Graham (now 16 months) in her quest to survive the first year of law school. Having survived 1L year, she wanted to tell others about it. Law School Mom is a mix of anecdotal experiences of law school and snippets of how to make it work as a mom and law student.

Des Moines, IA, October 29, 2010 --( A recipe for law school success calls for tough classes, long hours of studying, and finals seemingly at Everest-challenging levels. But throwing a baby in the mix?

Hope Wood, a second-year law student at Drake University in Iowa and mother to a sixteen month son, has penned a new e-book for parents doing just that. And although she has a husband by her side to assist with child-rearing while she’s buried in the books, she says any aspiring attorney has the chutzpah to become a “law-school mom.”

“My journey is about finding the ‘I can’ in a difficult process,” Wood said. “Working parents really can make it happen if they’re willing to work hard, sacrifice and prioritize.”

For Wood, that meant transporting her family from Indiana to Iowa to attend the law school of her choice, setting a rigorous schedule to fit in classes and family time, and learning to live on one full-time income. But, she says, the stress of balancing it all will pay off in the end.

“I like to think I’m setting a good example for my son by becoming a law-school mom,” she said. “He’ll witness perseverance, goal-setting and stress management first-hand. And the pay-off for me will be entering a career I truly love in three short years.”

Wood’s e-book runs the gamut on advice for law school moms (and most of her advice is applicable for law school dads, too). She explains her time-management strategies, how she handles parenting dilemmas amidst a busy school schedule, and doesn’t sugar-coat just how difficult the law school parent process can be at times.

Wood plans to write sequels to her “Law School Mom” e-book after each year of schooling she completes. The e-book is available
