If you’ve recently passed the Bar exam, you’re probably looking forward to conducting your first legal deposition in San Jose and litigating your first case. But it’s important to remind yourself that you’re still essentially a student. It will take a long time to become accustomed to working with a court reporter, arranging deposition services, and sorting through court transcripts. Since there will always be new things to learn about practicing law, it’s in your best interest to join your local Bar Association and look for a subgroup for new lawyers. Networking will help you expand your knowledge base while you make connections that could lead to a job.

Watch this video to hear what some established attorneys would tell new lawyers. Some of these recommendations include finding a mentor, memorizing the rules of evidence, and setting aside a portion of your practice for pro bono cases.
