“Two of the most valuable lessons I learned while attending the McCombs School of Business were learning how to streamline my writing and provide concise explanations. Most attorneys spend too much time trying to explain complicated legalese to their clients when the best approach is to quickly and concisely summarize the legal issues, so clients can then make an informed business decision.”
