Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! It's a good idea to start thinking about business development methods from the early days of law school, if you want to work in a law firm! Today we're chatting about this topic with our career expert, ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How business development is relevant to law students and young associates
  • When firms think about business development potential, what are they really looking for?
  • What can law students do in school to start building networking skills, or hone the traits they already have?
  • Being successful at networking as an introvert
  • What if you're thinking of having a solo practice, but hate the idea of business development?
  • Law school activities that might be good for business development later on
