Hello Ms. JD Aficionados!
I hope this finds you well and that you are enjoying the summer so far. Many of you may be summer associates in law firm summer programs across the country, others of you may be getting geared up for on-campus interviewing in the next several weeks, while some of you may be practicing attorneys with a few years under your belt. Whatever the case may be, each of us can use some advice about how best to define success in the context of where we are in our careers, and some do's and don'ts. In that vein, I am happy to share an article from my "Inside Out" video and print column from May 2015 in Chicago Lawyer magazine about how to define your own success as a lawyer.
I hope that you find both the written and video columns interesting and helpful. As always, I welcome your thoughts and feedback!
