Overview

 “Your First 90 Days in a Firm” features timely and practical insights on how to navigate life as a new lawyer at a firm.  Our presenters draw from their experiences as first-year associates and as current law firm partners, sharing their thoughts on best practices that new lawyers should adopt early in their careers, as well as conduct to avoid.
