Be a Sponge

In this In Practice podcast, I talk about my first rule for being an effective lobbyist, which is to be a sponge. It might sound fairly common sense, but this rule has served me well throughout my career as an advocate. These are not just helpful for aspiring legislative advocates only, but serve as useful guidelines for careers in legal advocacy – save for one rule, which I will go over in a later podcast.
