Here’s some stuff I learned to save you some trouble at your summer/post-graduate law jobs. These are mostly catered to litigation.
1. Just fucking call.
You will not find a lot of the court/agency procedural issues you’re asked to research on legal search engines. Meanwhile a lot of them can be very easily be solved just by picking up the phone and asking someone who knows.
2. Spell check.
Line. By. Fucking. Line.
3. Ask/look for samples and templates.
Most likely they’ll just give them to you, but if not, ask or find some on the system.
4. Ask for deadlines.
Actually forget this tip because they’re always say “as soon as possible” and life sucks okay
