A guide to informal mentoring

18 Aug 2015

Mentoring is a key element for professional development and career progression within the legal profession.

You probably already have a raft of informal mentors who provide you with guidance on a variety of legal and career-related questions. This network has probably spontaneously developed over time without you even realising it. Developing relationships within the profession gives you the benefit of a readily available set of mentors you can call on for advice on issues as they arise.

Five things you should know about cloud computing

13 Aug 2015

Earlier this year, I blogged about technologies lawyers could be using to deliver legal services. One of the technologies mentioned was cloud computing, which I’m particularly fond of because it means I can work wherever I am without needing to use a virtual desktop or remote access, which are cumbersome and outdated.

How to bluff your way through meetings
How to bluff your way through meetings

 YL 10 Aug 2015

At least once in your stellar career, you will find yourself under prepared for a meeting. Of course, your reason is quite plausible and nothing to do with laziness or procrastination! The trick to ensuring that you don’t look like you haven’t prepared is twofold: it is how you use the 15 minutes before the meeting and how you conduct yourself in the meeting.

A lawyer’s networking guide for dummies (that’s me)

06 Aug 2015

It’s confession time again – I’m not a good networker. In my role as a lawyer and LIV President, I need to network. But that doesn’t mean I’m good at it. I’m terrible at remembering names and feel awkward introducing myself to people. I am in awe of effective networkers. The best I have ever met were a non-lawyer (they have some skills!) and a law student, proving that networking is not something you have to learn at law school or after years of practice.

The ultimate legal quiz – how good is your legal knowledge?

30 Jul 2015

We lawyers pride ourselves on being the smartest people in the room – and there’s no better way to demonstrate this than trivia – am I right?

In preparation for the Young Lawyers Trivia Night, I’ve recently become addicted to Trivia Crack (don’t worry, it’s an app, not a substance). This week, I’ve decided to be the one asking the questions – because you always look smart asking the questions. So, I give you my ultimate legal trivia quiz!

Top ten legal myths busted

23 Jul 2015

My family enjoyed the recent school holidays by binging on all that Netflix has to offer. A particular favourite was Suits. My husband loved it but I took a little bit more time to warm to it (I’m well and truly addicted now). My difficulty was being able to set aside my lawyer’s instinct to reality test everything: “But that’s not how it works in real life”!
