Neil Pedersen Speaks on Getting Started As an Attorney

On December 13, Adjunct Professor Neil Pedersen presented a half-day seminar to young lawyers from all the Orange County law schools entitled “Hit the Floor Running: Practical Advice for New Attorneys.”  Organized by Student Services’ Pam Davidson and held on the Western State campus, Professor Pedersen provided 75 “nuggets” of wisdom for young lawyers on topics that included time management, the written and spoken word, building competence, professional conduct, problem identification and problem solving, client handling, business development, and surviving and thriving in the practice of law.  It was well received and is now being planned as a recurring program.
