Training the apprentices

Me to legal intern: I need you to research [statute] with regard to [possible legal argument].

Intern: Are you envisioning using this statute [this way] or [that way].

Me: I don't know. I don't even know if this is useful yet. That's why we do research. Once I know what I'm talking about, I'll know how I'm using it, or even if I'm using it at all. If you need focus, tell me everything you can first, then I'll decide what to follow up.
