Product Description

About the Author

Building a Better Legal Profession is a national grassroots movement that seeks market-based workplace reforms in large private law firms. By publicizing firms' self-reported data on billable hours, pro bono participation, and demographic diversity, we draw attention to the differences between these employers. We encourage those choosing between firms — students deciding who to work for after graduation, corporate clients deciding who to hire, and universities deciding who to allow on campus for interviews — to exercise their market power and engage only with the firms that demonstrate a genuine commitment to these issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly original, comprehensive resource June 29 2010
By Tim - Published on Amazon.com
This book was exceptionally useful as I approached recruiting season at my law school last year. Of the firms that offered me interviews I was able to use this Building a Better Legal Profession book to get an empirical sense of diversity among partners and associates within particular offices of various firms in major US markets. Armed with this data I was able to accurately weigh the commitment to diversity typically espoused by many a major firm, including those that interviewed me. With BBLP data I was able to see in hard numbers, collected from NALP's annual survey of firms, that attrition among women and minority associates is not typical across all firms. Ultimately the informative and usefully organized data in the BBLP book helped me choose a firm that shares an important part of my workplace values.

Also in this book are answers to law firm questions I had thought to ask but never really knew who to ask. What's the deal with international offices, pro bono hours required or encouraged per year (or lack thereof), how do partnership tracks vary across firms and what's necessarily the difference from one office to another within the same mega firm? All these questions were answered in this incredibly resourceful book. I've recommended the BBLP book and website ([...]) to all my law school friends (and even some professors) after discovering this unparalled resource.
