Why a Most-Read Post Isn't Enough for Lessons in Professionalism - IndyBar Blog

One of the most popular posts on Lawyerist last week was 10 Lessons You Weren't Taught in Law School, and it certainly isn't the first of its kind. These articles are regularly published across various outlets, and they all have one major thing in common: Most of the items they list are aspects of professionalism.

These articles are consistently among the most-read, and it's no surprise - they're helpful for attorneys at all levels. But you know what you can't get from a bullet point list that takes two minutes to read? You can't get a legal professional with real experience in the field giving you advice based on their own experiences. You can't get a discussion among attorneys in various practice areas sharing their input and learning from one another. And you certainly can't get new networking contacts and camaraderie in your local area by reading an article on a computer screen.

Those are things you can only get from Bar Boost - Keeping It Professional. This installment of the Bar Boost Series will detail the aspects of professionalism that attorneys need to know but weren't taught in law school. Featuring a roundtable discussion with panelists from the IndyBar Professionalism Committee, you'll take part in a program with some of Indy's best legal professionals when you attend. Not only will you have the opportunity to learn from their firsthand experiences, but you'll get to network with people who have been in your shoes and want to help.

Don't rely on a bullet point list or wait until you're in a challenging situation to learn these lessons - prepare beforehand. Register for the session here and take a big step toward advancing both your professionalism and your profession at this program.
