A legal degree can be particularly challenging, especially during the final year. Having had two part-time jobs, a cadetship and a legal internship while working, law student Georgia Fryer can attest to this better than most.

In this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Lauren Croft speaks with proud Dharawal woman and University of Sydney law student Georgia Fryer on juggling multiple jobs while studying and how law students should be prioritising their time.

Ms Fryer is the 2023 recipient of the Australian Academy of Law’s annual First Nations Scholarship, a cadet at Legal Aid NSW, and has two part-time jobs, in addition to studying a bachelor of laws and having recently completed a bachelor of arts (media and communications). Now in the final year of her legal degree and looking at completing her practical legal training course later this year, Ms Fryer delves into how she manages to balance her commitments, when to prioritise work over university and vice versa, and the importance of looking after one’s wellbeing through law school.
