Most lawyers know that keeping good notes is important, but not everyone does a thorough job of it. Your notes should contain at least the following:

  • Date
  • Time
  • Matter
  • Participants
  • Main Topic

The end of your notes should always include a note about how the meeting ended and what needs to happen next. For more information, see our post about practical advice for taking better notes.
