I did not have the pleasure of attending the Boston Bar Association‘s Panel on “Mistakes New Lawyers Make.” However, I did get the email summary of the event. I am going to direct you to their link, available here, which lists very practical advice for newly admitted lawyers.
All the advice is common knowledge, but I found one of the pointers very interesting and I am re-posting it below:
“Don’t try to fix your mistakes too quickly. Acting to[o] quickly can lead to another mistake.”
I have never heard that one before!
