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.

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.
