Perseverance: I have to persevere through the three years of law school, here at Harvard. I have to persevere through classes and trying to enhance my knowledge in this field of work even when I don't understand a topic.
My first time at Harvard Law School! It will be a long journey, but in the end it will all be worth it with the knowledge I have attained!
Learn and Grow: I need to learn about my client's story so that I can provide accurate evidence to win the case.
I came back home around 7 o'clock pm on Friday, and noticed my front door was opened and someone wearing all black was inside...
Okay, I understand, let me just write this down.
Respect: To maintain a respectful and secure environment, I need to respect my clients wishes. This will build a bond of trust between myself and my client, as well as it makes the overall work space more comfortable for everyone.
I want to make sure that my family stays protected and doesn't get involved into this situation.
I agree with you 100%, and will do everything in my power to respect your wishes.
Safety: In this field of work, being a trial lawyer, some people that I encounter, may be mentally unstable or dangerous. I need to prioritize both my safety, and my client's safety.
Before we go into the court room I need to inform you that the man who did break into your home is very dangerous. He will be handcuffed and monitored at all times, but i just want to make sure your safety is the number one priority.
Okay, I understand, thank you for putting my safety first.
Connecting: I need to connect with the jury and judge on a deeper level, so that they can vividly see my point of view, to win the case.
Good morning judge and jury. Today I want to paint you a picture. Imagine you are coming home from a long day of work and you are feared by the sight of your home being broken in to.
Learn and Grow: I need to learn new techniques and strategies in which I can present information and evidence to support our case, and win over the judge and jury, in a more effective way.
If you would care to look at the screen, you will see how much the goods that were stolen from my client's home were worth, and that he lost.
