10 Things Every New Lawyer Needs to Know [LGE 020]

Whether you’re a new lawyer or you’ve been practicing for many years, this is a great episode that will serve as advice (or as a reminder) for how to make the most of being a lawyer and be the best you can be. 

The Top Ten Things Every New Lawyer Needs to Know:

  1. Have a realistic perspective of your importance. That includes neither underestimating nor overestimating how much you matter.
  2. Don’t bend your principles. You graduated from law school with a backbone so be sure to stand up for what you believe in, even if it’s against your much more experienced employer.
  3. Never stop learning. You’re going to learn something new everyday in your law career and the sources from which you learning are varied.
  4. You know more than you think you know. In the legal community, your voice needs to be heard so be sure to share what you know.
  5. Get used to being wrong. Let go of the idea of being perfect and learn to accept the fact that you are going to be wrong at some point. Take it like a champ and learn from it.
  6. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. You’ll be surprised how helpful other lawyers are and how willing they are to offer some advice
  7. Start to establish a “real” network. By “real” I mean on a genuine level; don’t just be a LinkedIn connection. Introduce yourself to actual people, online or in person. Have personal conversations.
  8. Appreciate the extensive scope of what it means to be a lawyer. Your degree is super flexible and you can create any type of life and career you want with your degree.
  9. Look for tools to help when you feel like you need the help. A tool can be any resource (a person, technology, etc.) that helps you run your practice more smoothly.
  10. Take care of yourself. This is self-explanatory but many lawyers (experienced and new) need to hear this.
