As law students, we're supposed to maintain a certain level of professionalism, anywhere we go, which is why being professional during internships (at the student level) never goes out of style!
Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post of mine. I know, I know, it's Sunday instead of Saturday that I published the blog, but yesterday, I had been struggling with a lot of things, which led me into a spiral of distress. But after taking a good break, I'm back with another blog post of mine!
Now, coming back to the topic, here are some things that you might want to consider in the biz world of law!
A. Your Attire
Dress to impress. It's an old saying that still holds true to this day. If you're not dressing to impress, you're not working well. True..... or... Nah?
I don't think you need to dress to impress. Of course, the first impression is essential in the legal world, or any world for that but what's not necessary is impressing someone solely with your looks every day.
Dress decently and immaculately because nobody would judge you solely for your looks but for your legal skills, but it's definitely necessary to dress smart than dress like you don't belong there.
How you treat others and how you feel around others says a lot about you. If you're in a hostile environment, quit it. If you're the hostile one in the environment, try changing your thought process of habits to be more comfortable, peaceful and helpful around others. That of course, doesn't mean that you need to do everything that people say, hence set polite boundaries.
C. Be proactive and socialise.
*Cue the screams of an introvert*
Socialising? HOW PREPOSTEROUS!
I know, for an introvert, it sounds deadly. Something like a mix of martini- stirred, not shaken. (James Bond would be so disappointed in me)
But, it is necessary. If you need to survive in the legal field, you need contacts. You need to learn that you need to go ahead and talk first. You need to learn to deal with people the right way and you need to be active and take initiatives.
So go ahead! Enjoy your legal internships!
