I will remind all law students who venture out and into a courtroom post graduation that fostering a “fearless” attitude regarding course selection and professors will help them as litigators. fearless law students will develop the same attitude when it comes to walking into the courtroom of the one judge that all other attorneys have grown to fear. If you are prepared substantively, fear of the judge will be one less thing to worry about!
Interestingly, Ms May-Parker says that though she has tried umpteen cases, she considers herself an “introvert who becomes an extrovert” in court. She told the students not to try and be the one person who walks into a room and takes “command” of the room if that’s not who they are. “You always get the best results if you are remain who you are.”
