Here are some amazing advice for young
5. Take Pride in Your Work – Practicing law is
a noble profession, so take pride in being part
of the ranks of other incredible attorneys.
4. Know Thyself – Don’t try to become
someone you aren’t through the practice of
law. Any advice you take should be modified
to fit your style and personality in order to
allow you to thrive.
3. There is No Substitute for Hard Work –
Sometimes you have to just put in the hours.
That being said, look for opportunities to
create efficiency in your work to expedite
processes. Work smart.
2. Find a Mentor – I can’t stress how important
it is to find someone you can look up to in this
profession. Find someone who can help look
out for you even while still in law school. You
can’t force a mentor relationship, so find
someone who you respect who respects you
back that help propel your career forward.
1. Find Your Niche – It is tempting to be a jack
of all trades and a master of none, but this will
not help you in your career as a lawyer. In
order to find your niche, look for an area
where there an unserved need where you can
help. Sometimes this will mean taking extra
classes in school, reading newsletters, and
developing your knowledge.
