My first few years in a law firm were exciting, interesting and challenging. After finishing law school and dealing with the many obstacles all lawyers must overcome in those three years, I felt that I was well-prepared for law firm life. I knew I had plenty to learn, but I was ready.

As it turned out, I was. Certainly, there was much to learn about how a law firm works, how to work efficiently, firm politics, dealing with challenging personalities, learning some of the technical skills law schools cannot teach and much more. But what I learned in law school proved to be extremely useful and I knew from those years and from my internships that it was important for me to be prepared to learn every day once I became an associate.
