Customer Reviews
Shabby and lumbering, with a face like a Norfolk dumpling, Father Brown makes for an improbable super-sleuth. But his innocence is the secret of his success: refusing the scientific method of detection, he adopts instead an approach of simple sympathy, interpreting each crime as a work of art, and each criminal as a man no worse than himself...

Lawyer Forward: Finding Your Place in the Future of Law

We are all solo, yet none of us is solo.<br /><br />This realization is the key to designing a future-proof path in the legal industry.<br /><br />Through this transparent and often inspiring personal narrative, author Mike Whelan shares the importance of a new model for legal practice built on principles of specialization and collaboration.<br /><br />Mike begins by describing the failed system we've been taught, one built upon time and monopolized access to information. He calls this system "The Churn" and lays out the history and elements of that harmful model. He then offers an alternative that addresses every dangerous element of The Churn, finally asking how you'll forge your own path forward.<br /><br />The stakes could not be higher. Data consistently shows that lawyers are not respected. Studies also reveal the toll this takes on lawyers, who are at significant risk of depression and substance abuse. The Churn works for no one, Mike argues, and it's time to propose something different.<br /><br />Mike does that in thought-provoking fashion by sharing his own path. He looks back at his pre-law career in logistics to define a "Legal Supply Chain" and how a collaborative model might work in law. By understanding these principles of specialization and collaboration, Mike believes that lawyers can follow their own bliss and deliver better for the consumers and societies we aim to serve.<br /><br />Throughout the book, Whelan shares the work of great scientists and sociologists in a way that is easy to understand and apply. He finds that all successful complex systems work in a similar way, and that the legal field doesn't work that way at all. Only through systems thinking and redesign can we defeat the Churn and provide better for both consumers and lawyers.<br /><br />Here's how early readers describe the ideas found in Lawyer Forward...<br /><br />"This book is for every lawyer, and especially every solo, who has ever felt worn down or trapped by the shackles of traditional law practice. Lawyer and master storyteller Mike Whelan has written a highly personal, deeply engaging, and thoroughly pragmatic guide to breaking those chains and regaining the freedom to have the fulfilling legal career you always wanted." -Jordan Furlong, Law21 and author of Law is a Buyer's Market<br /><br />"If you've ever been tired, stressed, and worn out by your law practice, this book is for you. Lawyer Forward captures the all-too-real struggle that solo small lawyers face. Mike's engaging story weaves in science, history, and pop culture as he reveals the big picture we've been missing and then shows you the way out of 'The Churn.' This book is witty and engaging. It will change the way you practice law." -Jess Birken, Birken Law and Hack Your Practice<br /><br />"Filled with personal and professional anecdotes, well-researched case studies, and the author鈥檚 unique ability to distill and explain oft-confusing concepts, Mike persuasively lays out a roadmap for lawyers to carve out their own space in the future of the legal profession." -Nicole Abboud, Gen Why Lawyer<br /><br />If you are ready to rethink the nature of "lawyering," to defeat the Churn and map your own path into the future of law, read your copy of Lawyer Forward and share another with a young attorney. That is how these ideas will make the change the legal industry needs.

Admirably clear, concise, down-to-earth, and powerful鈥攁ll too often, legal writing embodies none of these qualities. Its reputation for obscurity and needless legalese is widespread. Since 2001 Bryan A. Garner鈥檚 <i>Legal Writing in Plain English</i> has helped address this problem by providing lawyers, judges, paralegals, law students, and legal scholars with sound advice and practical tools for improving their written work. Now the leading guide to clear writing in the field, this indispensable volume encourages legal writers to challenge conventions and offers valuable insights into the writing process that will appeal to other professionals: how to organize ideas, create and refine prose, and improve editing skills.<br /><br /><br />Accessible and witty, <i>Legal Writing in Plain English</i> draws on real-life writing samples that Garner has gathered through decades of teaching experience. Trenchant advice covers all types of legal materials, from analytical and persuasive writing to legal drafting, and the book鈥檚 principles are reinforced by sets of basic, intermediate, and advanced exercises in each section.<br /><br /><br />聽In this new edition, Garner preserves the successful structure of the original while adjusting the content to make it even more classroom-friendly. He includes case examples from the past decade and addresses the widespread use of legal documents in electronic formats. His book remains the standard guide for producing the jargon-free language that clients demand and courts reward.<br /><br />

Customer Reviews
Professors Fischl and Paul explain law school exams in ways no one has before, all with an eye toward improving the reader鈥檚 performance. The book begins by describing the difference between educational cultures that praise students for 鈥渞ight answers,鈥?and the law school culture that rewards nuanced analysis of ambiguous situations in which more than one approach may be correct. Enormous care is devoted to explaining precisely how and why legal analysis frequently produces such perplexing situations.<br /><br />But the authors don鈥檛 stop with mere description. Instead, Getting to Maybe teaches how to excel on law school exams by showing the reader how legal analysis can be brought to bear on examination problems. The book contains hints on studying and preparation that go well beyond conventional advice. The authors also illustrate how to argue both sides of a legal issue without appearing wishy-washy or indecisive. Above all, the book explains why exam questions may generate feelings of uncertainty or doubt about correct legal outcomes and how the student can turn these feelings to his or her advantage.<br /><br />In sum, although the authors believe that no exam guide can substitute for a firm grasp of substantive material, readers who devote the necessary time to learning the law will find this book an invaluable guide to translating learning into better exam performance.
