I have been thinking a lot lately about what young lawyers would benefit from reading. Then a few days ago, I met a friendly journalist and professor. In my search for answers, she told me that not only do our stories have value, but we are our stories.
I have a lot of stories about being a young lawyer! The most significant ones involve mistakes and how to move past them. They don’t so much involve the law or substantive practice; that’s basically the dressing. The real stories are the life lessons, not the legal ones.
