Terminal AmbitionAs you may or may not be aware, sexual harassment is rampant in BigLaw. Shocking, I know! You’d think they’d know better, right? Sadly, not so much.

Summer Reading List: Tomorrow’s Lawyers

Tomorrow's LawyersLooking for some summer reading? Tomorrow’s Lawyers is short enough to read in a few hours as you lounge in a hammock, but has enough heft to keep you thinking for much longer.

Who Should Read This Book?

If you’re considering applying to law school, you’re starting soon, you’re currently in law school, or you’ve already graduated, Tomorrow’s Lawyers is a must-read.
