Summer Reading List: Terminal Ambition

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.

(Here’s a recap of just one of my several personal experiences, plus my reaction to the reactions to that post.)

Next up on our summer reading list is Kate McGuinness’s fantastic thriller, Terminal Ambition. If you don’t already know Kate, you should. She’s a force of nature!

Kate was a BigLaw partner and General Counsel of a Fortune 300 company before leaving to become a women’s rights activist.

And right now she’s offering a free download of Terminal Ambition, but only until July 2 so get on it today!

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.

So, pretty much, it’s a must-read for anyone who’s in the legal profession currently, or who’s thinking about joining.
