Legal Talk Network and the ABA Law Student Division Bring You the ABA Law Student Podcast
Denver, CO – Earlier this month, Legal Talk Network launched a new podcast in conjunction with the American Bar Association’s Law Student Division—the ABA Law Student Podcast. Hosted by and produced specifically for law students, the podcast covers the issues that affect law students, law schools, and recent graduates, from finals and graduation to the bar exam and finding a job.
“We are thrilled to add the ABA Law Student Podcast to our network. Times have changed for law students and young lawyers. Law school is expensive, job opportunities and starting salaries are down, student loans are more difficult to pay back, and law students are under more pressure than ever,” Legal Talk Network Supervising Producer Laurence Colletti, who received his J.D. from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law said. “This podcast will offer valuable information on the changing scope of the industry for law students and recent grads. I wish I’d had a resource like this when I was in law school.”
ABA President Paulette Brown has said that “the ABA’s goal is to help law students confidently take on law school and transition into a meaningful legal career.” The ABA Law Student Podcast is just one way the organization is bringing value to the 115,000 law students who are eligible for free membership in the American Bar Association. The ABA also offers six months of free study tools for law students, and in addition to Law Student Division and Young Lawyer Membership, law students can also choose up to 5 additional free specialty groups. The ABA Law Student Podcast is free for all subscribers.
The first episodes of the podcast cover what the ABA Law Student Division is and what it intends to accomplish, sections, divisions, and forums law students should join, prepping for the bar exam, and Senator Lindsey Graham’s thoughts on getting through law school and working as an attorney.

In addition to being produced for law students, the ABA Law Student Podcast is hosted by law students Fabiani Duarte and Madison Burke. Duarte attends Mercer University’s School of Law and serves as chair of the ABA’s Law Student Division. Burke is the 12th Circuit Governor on the ABA’s Law Student Division Board of Governors and attends the University of Washington School of Law. The duo has already interviewed Senator Lindsey Graham, ABA President Paulette Brown, Professor Richard Conviser, and various division and section leaders from the American Bar Association for the podcast.
The podcast is available through iTunes, the Legal Talk Network app, LegalTalkNetwork.com, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, and Soundcloud. You can follow the podcast and join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #LawStudentPodcast.
