Although it seems like it should be common sense, you'd be surprised by how many law students struggle with professionalism when they arrive at their first law job. This may be because many law students have limited work experience or have only been exposed to more casual work environments in the past. Now is the time to make a good first impression at your legal job and we have some advice to help you out!

In this episode we discuss:

  • What does being a professional even mean? 
  • What your job really is as a new lawyer or legal intern
  • Why to check any sense of entitlement
  • What it's like to work in different settings
  • How and why to dress professionally
  • Professional communication (in-person and email)
  • Perception and why it's important
  • Alison and Lee's stories from the trenches!
