I hate networking. It is one of my least favorite parts of the law school experience. And that’s saying a lot. I even hate the word “networking” and especially hate people who talk about “growing their network.” Unfortunately, networking is an essential part of the law school experience, and it is a great way to foster important relationships. If you’re an extrovert who loves engaging with people you don’t know, then this post isn’t for you. This is for my fellow introverts.
