Professional Tip

“Never go to your supervisor with a problem unless you have already brainstormed possible solutions. Instead of “Here’s a problem, what should I do?” supervisors prefer “Here’s a problem, and here’s my proposal for solving it.” –Elizabeth Sherowski, Director of Moot Court & Lawyering Skills
