This is @Joe_Bankman .
He’s a pretty amazing guy. After teaching law school at Stanford for many years, Joe decided he wanted to broaden his experience and background, and he went back to school, achieving a degree in clinical psychology in his off-hours (!). Here’s a great article from Stanford Lawyer Magazine about this decision. In it, he says,
I never intended to quit my day job. But my scholarship and policy work were venturing into behavioral psychology and the law, and I wanted to understand more about human behavior.
Now @Joe_Bankman’s putting his experience to good use, working on a project that’s near and dear to this voyager’s heart. Along with Sarah Weinstein, he’s creating the Law School Wellness Project, the first anxiety and stress related resource specifically targeted at law schools and law school faculty.
Joe and I met a few months ago after he had read a post of mine. I was thrilled to hear about his project, and asked him if he had the time to share some of his insight with us here in an AMA. He said yes!
