Young associates gain invaluable experience while providing valuable assistance to their law firms.
When I graduated law school in May 2020, I was an aspiring litigator who was looking for the first chance to step into a courtroom. It’s every young litigator’s dream, right? However, although I am hopeful, I am also pragmatic, meaning I was sure I would not see the inside of a courtroom for the next few years. Plus, add to the equation a global pandemic, which shut down court and forced them to operate remotely. I, for sure, knew that as a young associate my courtroom experiences would be few and far between.
