I recently attended a presentation by a law school in which their presenters said all of the right things to students in order to get them to select their law school. They have all learned to mouth the phrase "We train practice-ready lawyers". Admittedly, most law schools are a little better at this than when I attended in th dark ages, but not by much. Just look at their curriculum and you will see that what they say is more of an affirmation of what they recognize that law schools must do but, in fact, do not do well.
I can get into the reasons why law schools do not train practice-ready lawyers when the overwhelming majority of their graduates will be going out on their own or associating in small practices, but it is beside the point. Law schools do not help and then when you graduate you do not really know what to do or where to turn.
That is the reason I like Caroly Elefant's books because they offer a valuable resource to attorneys or law students who have decided to start their own law practices.
I am not as prolific in my writings of late, but I do offer bits and pieces of advice to
those looking to start their own law practice. I hope you read and appreciate those tidbits.
Carolyn Elefant, however, has that unusual knack of being able to assemble all that she knows, has learned and has obtained in discussions with other successful lawyers into a comprehensive and cohesive guide that you need if you are intent on starting your own law practice.
