From the Author
I am a former civil litigator and bar association leader who closed my law practice in 1985 to take a one-year sabbatical, and never returned. Since then, I've studied, consulted with and talked to thousands of lawyers nationwide to learn what separates those who create satisfying and successful careers in or beyond the law from those who remain unemployed, underemployed or unhappily employed. This book shares their secrets. You won't find any easy answers or quick career fixes in What Can You Do with a Law Degree? What you will get is a pragmatic approach to career development, and a multitude of career-building techniques, that have been successfully tested by thousands of lawyers and law students. You may be facing unemployment or retirement, or graduating from law school with no clear career path ahead of you. You may be wondering if you want to return from parental leave or whether part-time work is the answer. You may be restless and bored, hate your job or your work, feel underpaid or unappreciated, or be too burned out to drag yourself to the office each morning. No matter where you are, if you're the kind of person who can get into law school, get through law school, pass the bar or practice law, you're among the cream of the crop of American workers. You're analytical, intelligent, motivated, responsible, the kind of person who achieves the goals you set for yourself. And that's the key. You can't get very far if you don't have a meaningful goal. What Can You Do with a Law Degree? will help you find it. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Top customer reviews
I would bet money that the author or someone close to the author wrote all of these glowing reviews, especially since there are so many reviews from legitimate people which state this book is pure trash. I have seen it before, and reported it to Amazon in the past.
I also contacted Law Practice Management Magazine letting them know that "Law Practice Management Magazine" is using their magazine's name.
This book, all the other "how lawyers can find job" books, and my useless Career Services Office simply assume that all job seekers have parents who are partners in law firms, great networks, and years of related experience.
Even the one of the good reviews given on this site is from someone who has years of experience. Duh! The book promises that it can help anyone at any level of their career. It fails.
