Being a new litigator is hard. You have the robes, you give the oath, and the Law Society gives you your golden ticket: a license to practice law. Meanwhile, you’ve never done any of it before.
It’s a tough place to be. Confidence is required, but if it’s your first time doing something, you are going to have a lot of doubt and a lot of questions.
I certainly did. I hope I can help you ease some doubt and answer some questions. The best place to go for advice is always the office of a more senior litigator, but if that’s not in your cards right now, this is a place to start.
