Many law students don’t realize that they are building their professional networks and forming relationships during law school that will aid in their client development as they progress in their careers. Building these relationships now and keeping in touch with classmates, will result in business referrals down the road.
Not only are you building referral sources, but your classmates may become a sounding board to bounce ideas off in the future during your legal career. Building these professional friendships is one thing, but these relationships must be nurtured as well. Linkedin is a great professional networking site to keep these contacts current and can help you stay in touch with classmates, professors, and all the contacts you make throughout your career.
