Product description

Review


"Full of engaging stories and well-chosen historical examples, The Good Lawyer paints a remarkable portrait of the values, visions, and virtues that lawyers should aspire to, in good times and bad. At a time of upheaval in the legal profession, this book is most welcome." --Jack Balkin, Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment, Yale Law School


"Good lawyers are not fictional and they are not cliches. They are real people, with actual clients, meaningful law practices, and satisfying careers. The ideal may be hard to realize, but it is far from impossible. Douglas Linder and Nancy Levit have now provided us with an outstanding guide to achieving a rewarding life as a good lawyer. Every attorney, or aspiring attorney, should read this book." --Steven Lubet, Williams Memorial Professor of Law and Director, Bartlit Center for Trial Strategy, Northwestern University School of Law


"The very best lawyers, including those who fill the pages of our history books and those who quietly but effectively serve their clients every day, built their practices on much more than intellectual superiority and mastery of the law. Douglas O. Linder and Nancy Levit thoughtfully explore key characteristics that good lawyers share and, in the process, remind us why we became lawyers in the first place -- and why that matters now more than ever. The Good Lawyer is a must-read for law students and prospective law students, new lawyers, and seasoned professionals." --Karen J. Mathis, Associate Executive Director of IAALS, the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System, and Past President of the American Bar Association (2006-07)

"A pleasingly eclectic approach... brisk and lively reading." --Wall Street Journal


"A joy to read... the book is rich in advice and inspiration.... there is so much of value in the book to counsel law students and lawyers as they seek to develop, and maintain, self-respect. That means, then, that the book can serve as an empathetic guide throughout our legal careers, reminding us to ground our professionalism in our definition of success. Ultimately, the book reflects the beliefs of its authors that good lawyers are real people with actual clients and careers that matter--and that we can each become a good lawyer." --Naomi Cahn, Concurring Opinions
