How to Be the “Go-To” AssociatePDF
Akya Rice presented at a CLE sponsored by the ABA Young Lawyers Division, Law Student Division and ABA Section of Litigation.
When looking back at certain periods in life, hindsight is always 20/20. When starting a new era, wouldn’t it be helpful to have that perspective a few years in? Fortunately, new associates that are just starting out and want to be the “go-to” associate that partners and others within the firm rely upon have the opportunity to do so.
Becoming this associate will be invaluable to an attorney's job and legal career. Rice and her co-presenter's presentation covered ways to:
- Understand challenges faced by new associates and partners that they report to and identify best practices for working with partners, senior associates and staff.
- Solve typical time management problems that frustrate attorneys.
- Learn how to produce high-quality work products.
