Survival for new lawyers

All new lawyers know that they should have a mentor.

Early in my career, I was lucky to have two smart, dedicated lawyers looking out for me: Rob Jenner and Christian Mester. Rob and Christian frequently gave an introductory talk to the University of Maryland’s Trial Advocacy class, and they gave me the same talk on my first day of work. We have revised it a bit through the years, and I hope you find it as useful as I did.
