Outside the Millennial Comfort Zone

Millennial students should be prepared to step out of their comfort zone by developing personal relationships with members of the legal community.  The first step to networking with attorneys is understanding the business climate and the practice of law.  Read the newspaper and any local legal publications.  Talk with local practitioners to learn what areas of law are expanding and which are shrinking.  How has the business of operating a law firm changed in the last ten years?  This due diligence will help you avoid marketing yourself in slow and stagnant practice areas so you can focus your efforts of more fertile fields.
