Survival Guide for the New Lawyer: What They Didn't Teach You in Law School
Let’s face it: Starting your law practice as a new associate can be stressful and overwhelming.

Full of anecdotal examples and hard-earned advice, this Guide is perfect for the aspiring lawyer fresh out of law school, or for any firm that wants to give its associates a leg up on the competition.
