We've reported previously (here) that law firms want students who are more business oriented and some law schools (here) are already responding by thinking of ways to bring business courses into the curriculum. Help your students stay ahead of the curve with this advice from the online ABA Journal.
1) Introduce clients to others who can help their businesses.
2) Promote the client’s company. Try wearing the corporate T-shirt, or nominating the client for an award.
3) Interview a client for an article you are writing.
4) Help the client solve a nonlegal problem, such as a need for new office space or a different banker.
5) Use your client’s services or buy the client’s product.
