Protégé: Know your values before choosing career direction
Most people come to law, Matthew Endo says, because they are interested in solving problems. Understanding one’s values prior to entering the profession can be critical, he notes, so that emerging practitioners can be best placed to make a difference.
On this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Squire Patton Boggs associate Mathew Endo about how, as a claims and contract specialist, he came to decide to study and practise law, what he’s learnt from working in multiple jurisdictions across the globe, having a holistic perspective on coming into legal education and his thoughts on the future of online learning for law students.
Mr Endo also discusses his views on balancing professional development and legal education, the importance of extracurricular activities in further developing one’s legal skills, how cultural issues in law will continue to play out, and his broader guidance to junior lawyers about how they can put their best foot forward in identifying the right vocational pathways.
