The Value of First Impressions

If you will be clerking with a law firm this summer, it is important to understand the value of your first impression.  Each partner, associate, and staff member will be sizing you up when they meet you.  To make a good impression, dress professionally and have a confident demeanor.  You can bolster this confidence by meeting with a Career Services Counselor prior to your clerkship to discuss how to ensure your success.  For example, you can discuss what questions to ask when you receive an assignment and how best to approach a partner when you have a tricky question.  To schedule an appointment, log into Symplicity or email us at
