Many law students starting Articles face a daunting learning curve. Adapting to life in a law firm can be complicated. Getting familiar with the need for professional comportment, observing confidentiality, managing personal interactions, mastering time management and navigating a selection of resources. They may not know where to turn to get their questions answered.

The TLA presents Head Start to answer all their questions about adapting to their new life and meeting (and exceeding) the expectations their colleagues have of them. Your students will thank you for enrolling them in the Articling Students Head Start Program, September 19, 2017, 8:30am -12:30pm. (A light breakfast will be served)

The morning is divided into two sections: "Part One, Lawyers Telling It Like It Is: What, How and Why", features David Elmahleh, Partner at McCague Borlack, discussing how he assesses a student’s work. Jennifer Arduini, associate at Dutton Brock, will reveal how students can make themselves indispensable. The session will cover a variety of topics including communication, collaboration, managing expectations, work habits, and networking. Ian Hu, of LawPro, will discuss Practice Management, providing valuable insights that will help students fuel their careers from the start.

Part Two of the morning will focus on "Techniques for Effective Legal Research", to help guide students to research quickly, efficiently and exhaustively. Joan Rataic-Lang, Leah Strudwick and Linda Zardo of the TLA Court House Library will give a refresher on research methodology, where to find best sources for free, and how and where to find bullet-proof research.
