Best practices that can help young lawyers excel

When new lawyers in Washington are first stepping foot into what they hope will be a long-winded and successful career, it is often a time of unsettling confusion. While they may have a clear vision of where they aspire to be, getting there can often be quite the battle. For many, their effort to network with other successful law professionals who can provide mentoring is critical to helping them learn the ins and outs of working under pressure. 

New lawyers: how joining a bar association can help you

When you are starting out as a new lawyer, having a good support system is crucial, especially from other lawyers. A great way to get support from other lawyers is to join a bar association. These associations are made up of lawyers that share your practice and/or are located in your state.

You’re starting your legal practice: what equipment do you need?

You did it. You have graduated college, passed the bar exam and are now determined to open your own law firm. After getting a business license and finding a space, there are still a few things you will want to check off your list before declaring that you are open for business. Specifically, there are items that you will want to find, purchase or rent to have in your office that will make your life easier.

How to continue learning after law school

Even the best lawyers need to continue learning after starting their practice. Continuing to learn and grow after completing law school is essential for the success of your firm. There are several ways for new and experienced lawyers alike to stay up-to-date on Washington legislature as well as perform additional research on practice topics.

Program bridges gap between law school and a successful practice

Many people may think that upon graduating from law school and passing the bar exam, an attorney is ready to "hang out a shingle" and get to work. In fact, while they have learned how to be lawyers, graduates may not have learned how to successfully establish and grow their practice in today's ever-changing legal professional landscape.
