Business Cards

Postby Nova » Sat Jul 20, 2013 5:40 pm

Do you have a business card?

If yes, what does it say? What does it look like? Who prints them for you?
If no, how bad do you want one?


What do you generally think makes a business card good?

Law students don't need business cards. No one is going to be calling you. It is you who needs to reach out and stay in touch.

Search function. Use it.

You are not important enough to any lawyer to warrant a business card yet.

:| . I didnt see any recent threads on the topic.

Theres this, http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... 23&start=0 , which is from 2010 and is about whether having a card is a good idea or not. Although not a popular opinon, 25% dont think having a business card is a bad idea.

Yall are being way to narrow. There are uses for contact cards outside of networking with attorneys. The most obvious being when someone asks you for your number, you can just be like "heres my card".

Outside of my summer job (which gave me cards) I have been asked exactly once for my card. I just told the guy that I didn't have a card, but if he was kind enough to give me his email address I would be more than happy to send my contact information to him. It turned out fine
