Law Firm Partners Share Insight about Annoying Habits of Associates

If you are a lawyer in the Washington, DC area, especially an Associate in a firm, I highly recommend attending this luncheon event from the DC

Bar Association

Time: Wednesday, March 2, 2011 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pmThe Lett Group - office frustration

This event will highlight things younger associates do – or don’t do – that might not be significant enough to show up on the associate’s performance review, but which can nonetheless make a bad impression to a partner and ultimately undermine the associate’s long-term career prospects. To provide context for why certain habits are viewed negatively, the panelists will also discuss key attributes in associates that partners value. As you pursue your grand career goals, don’t forget that the seemingly little things matter.This Luncheon Program is sponsored by the Young Lawyers Committee of the Corporation, Finance and Securities Law Section and in cosponsorship with the Administrative Law and Agency Practice Section, the Antitrust & Consumer Law Section, the Arts, Entertainment, Media & Sports Law Section, the Computer and Telecommunications Law Section, the Criminal Law and Individual Rights Section, the International Law Section, the Labor and Employment Law Section, the Law Practice Management Section, the Litigation Section, the Real Estate, Housing and Land Use Section, and the Taxation Section.

Wouldn’t it be great if companies had a similar panel discussion for new and younger employees to share what will cost them career success?
Little things do matter and so does proper etiquette in and out of the office.
