Cultivating learning for new lawyers

Mattheus Stephens discusses the importance of training and learning opportunities for new attorneys and provides recommendations for senior practitioners to help guide and teach them, including:

  • Approach engagements with new lawyers as though teaching at an academy of law
  • Be conscious of all the things a new lawyer may not know yet
  • Be genuine about what you do and don’t know about the law, to demonstrate that an ongoing effort on learning is needed  to be successful
  • Include newer attorneys in new things, like examinations at depositions or arguments before the Court
  • Make space and time for new attorneys to learn
