It is no secret that law school doesn’t teach you to be a lawyer. One firm has developed a solution to the “impostor syndrome” suffered by new law grads, who sit in their offices, terrified someone will discover that although they passed the bar they haven’t a clue what to do next.
Cleveland’s Hahn Loeser & Parks L.L.P. has designed an 11-unit course, of sorts, for its associates to learn the less-legal points of practicing law: developing business, managing their time, weeding through financial statements and avoiding legal malpractice pitfalls, among others. The course was created in response to feedback from a firm questionnaire, in which associates commented they needed some practical help, says marketing director Kelly A. Blazek. But recognizing that associates might not always find the time for what some lawyers see as the snooze factor of the practice, the firm has gone to great lengths to make each session a must-attend event.
