Life as a midlevel associate can be tough.

Having practiced law for a few years, you're expected to handle not only your substantive work with ease but also take on a greater role in managing your matters and teams.

Unfortunately, this increase in responsibility doesn't always come with the corresponding (necessary) training you need to truly excel.

You may not learn things like:

How to manage a team of junior associates and staff to boost morale and get great work product.

How to keep track of all the moving parts on your matters.

How to step up as a leader when you're not yet a senior associate or partner.

How to decide whether to stay at your current firm or move on to another opportunity.
