Becoming a Highly Valued Associate
March 2, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The second event also focused on what it takes to become a highly valuable and highly valued associate. This program began with a discussion of what professional styles and skills could be used to describe junior associates – and of those, which were routine and expected and which could make a lawyer stand out. It was suggested that attendees later consider which they thought described themselves and which they thought others would use to describe them. Next, a panel of law firm partners discussed the styles and skills of lawyers they want on their matters and a panel of star associates talked about the styles and skills they thought made them stand out as junior associates. The presentation ended with the advice that the attendees take time on their own to consider which styles and skills make associates stand out at their firms and whether those are styles and skills they have or want to have or can develop.
