Overview

With law school behind you, it's now time to learn the ethics and skills lessons that are helpful to know before you start practicing, but tend to arise when you're already on the job. Knowing how to navigate a range of ethical pitfalls, polishing your writing and communications for clients and colleagues, as well as honing your negotiation preparation approach - are all skills and knowledge that are "nice to know" until you "need to know." And whether you are in litigation, transactions or in-house, law firms and legal departments are demanding that new lawyers joining their ranks possess a strong grasp of these types of broader professional skills and knowledge from day one.
