"Even in the best-case scenario, partners at law firms claim that it takes two to three years before an associate is truly ready to practice (and in many cases even longer before they're allowed to speak directly with clients)." - Jason Mendelson, author of How to Be a Lawyer: The Path from Law School to Success

Help speed things up by watching the How to Be a Lawyer webinar, where Jason Mendelson and his coauthors discuss: 

  • The 14 commandments for new lawyers starting out in the world of attorneydom
  • How to translate your expensive legal education into a successful, long, and—yes—even a fulfilling career in any practice area
  • How to better understand your clients, their needs, and what they really think of their lawyers
  • Avoiding common career pitfalls
