Tips for the New Lawyer

By | Dec.12.14 | Daily Dispatch, Extras, Law Practice, New Lawyers, Resources

Who among us couldn’t use some good advice? An encouraging little nudge or two in the right direction, or a timely kick under the conference table? And who needs good advice more than a new lawyer?


When we published “25 Tips for the New Lawyer” in 2011, it was a great big hit — and it’s still Attorney at Work’s second-most popular free download.* (Even BigLaw firms special-order copies in bulk for new lawyers.) And, just between us, it’s not only the new lawyers who have been downloading it — it seems those 25 tips resonate with more “tenured” lawyers as well. They say it takes a while for lawyers to know what they don’t know fresh out of law school.

You Deserve an Upgrade

Today we roll out the new, improved and expanded version of the original: “49 Tips for the New Lawyer.” It has nearly double the tips, plus 128 live links to a boatload of really good ideas and information you can use. And, of course, it’s still free.

Whether you’re a junior or senior lawyer, backed up by an army of support staff and partners or valiantly braving it solo, soak up some of this sound advice and see if it doesn’t help the hard lessons strike a little softer.

    For someone who is in studying Law for the last 3 years and is still fairly new to it, this article was great, very informative, and accurate. Thank you!
