Last updated on: December 22, 2022


In this episode of The Effective Lawyer, Jack Zinda talks about one of the most important things you can invest in as a lawyer—yourself. Jack breaks down how to take care of your most important investment in this new episode.

Discussed in this episode: 
  • Investing in continuing education
  • Putting together a syllabus of educational materials

Investing in Continuing Education

When it comes to CLEs, you want to be intentional about the programs you attend. If you are a personal injury lawyer, for example, you wouldn’t attend a program unrelated to your field.

Creating a Syllabus of Educational Materials

Next, create a syllabus of educational materials that will help you master your craft. Then, spend 15 minutes per day mastering your craft or improving yourself. The important thing here is to start small. Ask someone to hold yourself accountable and make sure you have the materials you need on-hand.
