This is the second in a planned series of four "Jagged Rocks of Wisdom" guidebooks for new attorneys. The first book, Jagged Rocks of Wisdom: Professional Advice for the New Attorney, focused on issues of professional deportment and training. This title carries that theme forward with 21 new rules for success in writing legal memoranda. This book provides the tools to do an excellent job and avoid the many risks and dangers awaiting the unprepared.
The examples and anecdotes in this book are real. The facts have been tweaked to be less recognizable, but each incident happened almost exactly as described. The summer associates described in the examples are actual summer associates making actual summer associate mistakes, which are pretty much the exact same mistakes made by junior associates. The mistakes I describe myself as having made are--sadly--mistakes that I actually made. I learned from my mistakes. I encourage you to learn from my mistakes as well.See all Editorial Reviews
