How To Be Employable
[00:00:00] What does someone who do... wants you to become a sought-after employable attorney?
I don't know if that means employable or employment. The law school you went to has nothing to do with whether or not sought after or employable. It may have to do with when you get out of school, but you can certainly develop your practice.
One of my friends is a very well-known immigration attorney and she went to a, not a top law school and learned how to do everything on her own, which is pretty incredible, but she's got a very good practice now. And when you look at most of the famous attorneys who you may have heard of in personal injury and all these other things, most of them didn't go after go to the best law schools.
The best thing you can do, if you want to become a sought-after attorney is just throw yourself into what you're doing and learn about it and then develop business and all the things that I'm talking about right now. I think it can be very helpful. Those are some of the most important things. I do not think if you went to a top law school, you may think differently about this, but how do you not think that the law school you went to has all that much to do, in terms of what happens to people and the long run?
There are so many other things that are involved and becoming a success which [00:01:00] has to do with things like your persistence and sticking with it, your ability to generate business, whether or not people like you after a period of time, how much you learn, and everything.
So just because you didn't go to law school, doesn't matter. The only time it matters is when you're coming out and trying to get a job, paying a lot of money, but in the long run, it's not something that's going to make a big difference in your career.
