Uncertainty is a constant of legal practice, for example the impact of legislative reforms on your client or how a judge might rule in your case. Many lawyers might also experience broader uncertainty regarding their practice (do I really love litigation?) or career (is law for me?).
Nat and Jenn discuss different tools to manage uncertainty including contingency planning, managing expectations, building adaptation skills and keeping perspective.
They explore the ‘doing versus being’ dichotomy and why it’s important to both put goals in place and work towards them, but enjoy your present work in the moment.
