Lisa Darnley Cooper is an experienced attorney at Hand Arendall Harrison Sale, and on this episode, she speaks with Grace Swain to give advice and guidance to young women looking to enter the world of law.
One thing that I've always heard people will say is, "Oh, he or she likes to argue." You'd be a great lawyer. I don't like to argue. I'm not a combative person, so that doesn't always ring true. The most important thing is that you can think critically, persuade, and advocate your position. And you have to have Grit. Be able to persevere when you have a challenge, have staying power, be true to who you are, and acknowledge your voice, and it will all fall into place. - Lisa Darnley Cooper
