Two of my recent columns in Litigation—“Five Traits of the Best Lawyers I Know” (Fall 2013) and “Fourteen Tips to Make You a Better Litigator” (Spring 2014)— invited Section members to share your own practical tips for success as a litigator. I am now awash in responses, far too many to print or to attribute individually. I have done my best to distill the collective wisdom of 60,000 members into bite-sized topics, synthesizing related ideas but retaining original word choice as much as possible.
