Becoming a lawyer is an achievement. Along the way, almost everyone experiences stress, feelings of not belonging, and worries about their ability to cut it. These experiences of psychological friction act as a drag on all students.

MILE seeks to understand these dynamics, measure their impacts, and create scalable programs in response that unleash aspiring lawyers’ underlying potential.
