  • The Discovery Process (Part I): Written Discovery and the Use of Interrogatories

    in Legal

    After you have filed a Complaint or responded to a Complaint by filing an Answer to the Complaint, the next phase of the litigation is called discovery.  Discovery typically begins by sending Interrogatories and Requests for the Production of Documents, Objects and Tangible Things (“Requests to Produce”).  Interrogatories are written questions and Requests to Produce are requests for documents, objects and tangible things.  This Podcast with Jennifer Burt of Lavelle Law will review the process and provide an overview of what to expect. 

  • How to Have Fun at a Large Law Firm

    in Legal

    During law school, many had dreams of working at a large law firm.  While it was understood that the hours would be long, there was the appeal of the large salary, the lunches in the city, the happy hours, and the general camaraderie at the firm.  However, the reality was much different than the expectation and time is spent mostly sitting behind a desk, trying to meet billable hour requirements, creating an unhappy work environment.
     
    But there is another option.  Rather than feeling trapped in a career that doesn’t make you happy, there is a way to derive pleasure from your work.  Robert Graff will be speaking on tips and strategies on how to find enjoyment at your firm and have fun practicing your chosen career.
     
    Robert Graff is the President of The Graff Standard and one of its coaches.  Prior to becoming a coach, he was an assistant district attorney for five years, an associate at an employment, business, and healthcare law firm for two years, and currently has his own private practice located in Pennsylvania. As a coach, he helps lawyers reignite the passion they once felt for the law, find enjoyment in even the most demanding and monotonous aspects of their job, and strike a sustainable work-life balance.
