Tips for Summer Success

Joshua Auriemma, who summered at various firms and non-profits and now has clerks of his own offers  5 Tips to Becoming a Great Summer Associate, Legal Geekery, June 17, 2011. He leads with one of my favorite tips: Don't be afraid to ask questions!

Mr. Auriemma is talking about asking questions of your supervisor, which is very good. Remember that you can also ask questions of reference librarians, who can point you to good sources and make your research more effective. Talk to the librarians at your own place of employment, the local public law library (e.g., Public Law Library of King County), or law school libraries. We at the Gallagher Law Library are happy to answer our students' questions, wherever they are, and we're also open to the public. Check out our AskUs! link.
