AUTHOR: Koster, William
Also available at Amazon.com
"The Business of Practicing Law" is a frank discussion of the inner workings and cultural milieu of the modern American law firm. The author's keen insights into the business aspects of the practice of law will fill a void in the typical attorney's legal education. The material is presented in a crisp and readable style, blended with the pertinent personal experiences of two imaginary third-year law students, culminating in their interviews with a model fictional law firm and their ultimate career choices. Every attorney who is considering practice in a law firm--and even those who have already made that choice - will benefit from Mr. Koster's cogent observations, which are based on his 35 years of practice in a variety of legal settings. He manages to convey information in a unique manner that engages the reader, illuminates aspects of the private practice of law that may come as a surprise, and forces an introspective examination of an attorney's goals and compatibility with law firm life. This book is a "must read" for law students and law firm associates.
