Is “Fun Monday” an oxymoron? Thought I’d share some humor today… Most of us can use it on Mondays: Legal Humour is just what it says — good legal humor, no lawyer jokes. Law Ha-Ha is Andrew McClurg’s brainchild. Love it. And then there’s Law Laughs, which is more of the same. For dark non-legal humor, visit […]
We all go through periods when we just aren’t that efficient at work. Maybe there’s something personal going on that’s distracting you, maybe it’s been a beautiful summer week and you want to be out in the sun, maybe you have a cold and just don’t feel good but also don’t feel bad enough to […]

Most of my coaching clients bring time management […]

This is off the ordinary topic, but today cannot be overlooked. As readers likely know, women voted today in Kuwait’s elections for the first time in a national poll. Without delving into the politics (or the socio-religious implications of the politics, or any combination thereof), this is a red-letter day for women in Kuwait and […]
I wrote a couple of weeks ago about the “soft” skills on which law firms can profitably offer training to summer associates.

Apparently I’m not the only one who found the comments to the WSJ Law School: Does It “Keep Your Options Open”? blog post notable. The WSJ law blog has posted a response from Professor Stracher himself, in which he provides the admirable advice: But if your only reason for going to law school is because you […]
