DC LSIC: Orientation Notes, Day 2

Day two was not quite so packed w/pithy little bits of wisdom to share, but there were a few, including:

  1. If you're never sort of tempted to breach ethical rules for your client you may be in the wrong line of work. You've got to want to win. You also have to never cross the line even when you're tempted.
  2. Do not have sex w/your clients.
  3. Jencks is a double-edged sword. You want to take statements and notes from adversarial (prosecution) witnesses, but not from your own.
  4. In D.C., every person ever arrested for anything gets a PDID number (Police Department Identification) that that person for life. Lower numbers mean this person was first arrested longer ago. Note that PDID looks a little like P. Diddy. Is there some connection?
There was more, but I'm late for day three.

Oh, and apropos of nothing but fun: I had drinks w/a superhero last night and it was the most entertaining hour I've spent in some time! We talked about everything from summer experience to the horrors of job searching to love, lust, and its many permutations. Thanks, E. Spat! You are the rockingest!

p.s.: Thanks to everyone who left tips on the job searching. I will definitely be following up on those next week!

You forgot 2.(b) If you do have sex with your clients, don't do it as a repayment for money you stole from them.

I learned that one from my PR class.
