Class of 2005

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned since graduating from law school?

I went to law school on the premise that with a law degree I could easily transition into business. The reality is there are no OCI programs for these careers and few business recruiters will work with you straight out of school. To make the switch you have to be persistent, creative, bold, and resilient.
