Anjie Vichayanonda is a first generation lawyer who sought out lawyers to gain a better understanding of law school. Anjie was connected with a wonderful mentor and followed her dreams to becoming a lawyer. However, Anjie wants to make it easier for others to learn about law school and find mentors.
Anjie created Leg Up Legal, which is a virtual mentorship platform to connect pre-law students to lawyers. Schools may join Leg Up Legal to provide their services to students or individuals may use the Leg Up Legal app to be connected with lawyers and learn more before committing to law school. Anjie also created a podcast, Leg Up Legal Podcast.
Anjie is a contributing author to the book, “Networked”, where a group of 20 women lawyers explained how their businesses or practices changed in 2020 while living during a pandemic. You may purchase “Networked” on Amazon and at tinyurl.com/networked.
