Week Two of Being a Legal Assistant
This is my first whole week of being a legal assistant and my second week on the job.
A lot of the time I am reminded of information I already know from my law and political science classes I took in college, and from what I’ve seen on legal TV shows.
Here’s a few examples of those kinds of things:
- Make sure you know something is 100% factual … no he said, she said shenanigans
- Make sure you can prove anything you claim
- Document everything you can, if someone makes a promise to you or reaches an agreement with you – make sure you get that in writing
- Never use blanket statements
Welp – see you next week with more updates from a learning legal assistant.Tags: legal assistant
