ABOUT THE COURSE
Ahh, you’ve made it through the wilderness called the bar exams. Somehow, you have managed to weather the agony of waiting for the results. Fortunately, destiny was kind to you. You have been the lucky 20%-30% who have successfully slain the dragon. You are in cloud nine for one whole month, as night after night the celebrations filled with inebriation and jubilation clutter your social calendar. Meanwhile, you start groveling all over the place.
Then, after a few weeks, you troop to the Supreme Court for the signing of the roll of attorneys. Now what? This is when the smoke clears, and reality unfolds right before your eyes.
To ease the transition from student life to lawyer life, we present the virgin litigator hacks. This isn’t a definitive list of hacks. This is just enough to get you through the birthing pains of starting your litigation career. These aren’t the ones that are taught in law school. You learn them as you go along.
