Format: Hardcover
Whether you are a lawyer in a law firm seeking to understand the challenges of your in-house counsel clients, a mid career lawyer mapping a path to the GC's office, or a young lawyer looking at your career options, this book is a rich resource.

By reading the book, I discovered I was a "first waver", as the General Counsel at Nestle Beverage in the early 1990s. No wonder it seemed hard to find role models! But with this book, that doesn't need to be the case for you.

This book encourages you to find you own path to success. It profiles many women GCs who got to where they are by different routes and with different backgrounds and styles. No one size fits all advice here! And that's a good thing. Because regardless of where you went to law school, what your substantive expertise is, how you spent your early career, or what your personal style is, there is likely to be a role model and solid career advice in this book.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rachelle J. Canter on October 30, 2011
Format: Hardcover
This fascinating book provides a wealth of lessons and tips from women general counsels in the Fortune 500. The book identifies themes, like the importance of mentors and risk-taking, that broadly characterize the paths of these women, but also lets the reader enjoy and appreciate the different paths taken by the GCs as well as their unique challenges and characteristics. Along with the useful insights from career and leadership experts, and a substantial dose of inspiration from all quarters, the book traces the trajectory and history of female general counsels. This book is an invaluable resource for ambitious women and men, lawyers and non-lawyers!

Courageous Counsel by Michele Coleman Mayes and Kara Sophia Baysinger is a truly unique contribution to the dialog regarding women attorneys and the legal field in general. The mentoring, advice and guidance that this one book imparts would be difficult to glean during the span of an entire career. For that reason alone, it is an invaluable resource to women in all stages of their legal careers. It is also incredibly engaging, inspiring, practical, and accessible. I find that I turn to it time and time again to get reinvigorated and energized about my own legal career and life path. It is an irreplaceable addition to my bookshelf!
