"New Lawyer Survival Guide" is a resource for law school graduates on how to navigate office politics, avoid or pivot from newbie mistakes, and thrive in the workplace.
Are you a new lawyer? If so, then this book is for you. Being a new lawyer can be a stressful and seemingly endless experience. With worries ranging from imposter syndrome to career-ending mistakes, practicing law in the beginning can be like a journey where you are traveling a rocky, unpaved road with no map to guide you. Oftentimes, new lawyers do not want to lose face by bothering their superiors with particular issues—or worse, some new lawyers, such as those who run a solo practice, may not have access to people in positions of leadership with whom they can consult. This book is meant to fill this gap by providing practical advice for common, real-world predicaments facing new lawyers. While nothing can substitute for the real thing, this book will provide guidance akin to that of a mentor. New lawyers have little extra time, so New Lawyer Survival Guide was designed to be an easy read; and it has long-term value in that it can also serve as an ad hoc reference guide. New lawyers often ask themselves, How will I ever survive? This book is the answer.

Book Reviews

The Only Non-Dry Legal Book On The Market No one really talks about how to actually navigate the workspace after law school. And if they do, I've never seen a book addressing each topic. All legal literature is usually hypothetical case advice. Whereas, this is personal survival advice. The book basically addresses everything you need to know that no one talks about to get ahead of your peers. Read more
