Location Awareness for New Litigators

I recently coached a youth basketball team made up of 12 kids ages 5 through7, including my two sons Alexander and Abraham. Unsurprisingly, I spent much of the practices teaching the kids where to stand on the court, which way to run when their team has the ball or when the other team has the ball, and which basket to shoot on. In litigation, as in sports, being aware of your location and that of the other players—not just physically, but in your case and your law firm—is also important.
