Must Read if Thinking of Law School -- Book - Work, Life & the High Calling of the Law: A Managing Partner's Perspective
Undergraduates and others considering a law career desperately need someone to look them in the eye and tell it like it is. Work, Life & the High Calling of the Law does just that.
Written by a former managing partner in two of the nation's largest law firms, the author is both practical and insightful about law school and the career choices available to law grads. The author candidly shares his hard-earned insight on what can be, particularly during the first several years, a bewildering career experience. And like a wise uncle, he discusses the reality of legal practice; not the John Grisham sensationalism most lay people expect, and not the image conveyed through the media. Instead, law as a "calling” … a high calling. Paperback. 7" x 10". 157 pages. 2010.
