PrawfsBlawg has offered some Advice to the New Summer Associate in Big Law. While most of these recommendations and admonitions are (hopefully!) common sense, they still may serve as a useful reminder. Good counsel here includes:
- Make sure you walk away from an assignment meeting with all the information you need; don’t be afraid to ask questions
- Quality of work is more important than quantity
Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey about George Mason’s Law Library and Technology services. The library staff reads all of your suggestions and has implemented many of them. So please let us know what you think—including any comments about this blog!
The survey ends on Friday, May 13, 2011.
Do your eyes glaze over when you think of e-discovery and e-records management? Mine do. But we better all perk up. This NYTimes story reports on how computer programs have been used to handle large discovery jobs in record time, and how computer surveillance programs can detect “digital anomolies” that may reveal white collar crime. We are all going to have to be tech savvy to best handle our cases, advise our clients, and stay out of trouble.
