9780195392326: The Happy Lawyer: Making a Good Life in the Law
Review:


"It's a book that anyone who is--or was--or wants to be--a lawyer (or anyone who knows a lawyer) should read...I'm recommending it to all of my students, and to my friends practicing law, and even to my husband, who prides himself on NOT being a lawyer. --ConcurringOpinions.com


"Well researched, positive, and clearly written, this is an important book for the bar. Essential for lawyers and law students." --Library Journal


"The citing of a poll of American attorneys, in which seven out of ten said that they would choose other careers if they were starting out, might suggest that the law is best avoided. But for those in the profession, solutions are to be found-and they're in The Happy Lawyer. Best to buy it for anyone you think may need it."--The Times


"Solid researchers, the authors provide countless statistics about the state of [lawyers'] happiness and prospects for finding it in the future...With a generation of younger lawyers changing jobs at high rates and the high cost of the turnover, law firms would do well to consider the clearly identifiable factors set forth in this book...How important is it to be happy? If you are curious about the answer or about how to increase the happiness in your life or that of your firm, The Happy Lawyer is a worthwhile read."--The Nebraska Lawyer


"Although law is one of the nation's best paid and most influential occupations, only about half of lawyers report being satisfied with their work. In this insightful and engaging book, Nancy Levit and Douglas Linder explain why. They comprehensively review the growing research on happiness to provide crucial insights about how lawyers can improve the quality of their professional lives. This book should be a required text for every law student, every law firm leader, and every practitioner who wants to find greater fulfillment in a legal career."---Deborah Rhode, Director, Stanford Center on the Legal Profession and author of The Beauty Bias

Review:

There is something for everyone in Nancy Levit and Douglas Linder's book The Happy Lawyer: Making a Good Life in the Law...if there is a single big message to take away from all the books, it is to live a life in accordance with your own values ( David Griffiths, Law Society Gazette)

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2010. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 211 x 147 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Despite the handsome incomes they often command, lawyers are far from the happiest of professionals. Seven in ten attorneys in one poll said they would choose other careers if they had to do it over again and, in another poll, fewer than half said they would encourage young people to become lawyers. Indeed, no poll has ever put the law in the top tier of satisfying professions. The economic uncertainty of recent years has only made law students and lawyers think harder than ever before about what they can hope to get out of careers in law. This book not only sheds light on why so many lawyers find so little to like about their jobs, but also explores what they can do about the problem. Drawing on recent psychological research on happiness, Nancy Levit and Douglas Linder highlight various factors that contribute to professional stress and frustration-from pressure to increase the number of billable hours to discontents that occur when the job s demands fail to mesh with a lawyer s personal values or aspirations. They offer an array of coping tools, both large and small, that will help attorneys find more balance in their lives; they also suggest ways that law firms can be more flexible to accommodate their employees needs, thus boosting morale and, in the process, producing higher-quality work. The authors also show how law students can better define their goals to ensure a satisfying career. Having interviewed more than two hundred lawyers across the country, Levit and Linder enliven their account with engrossing-and sometimes surprising-career stories from both happy and unhappy lawyers. From these stories they develop sensible solutions for lawyers and the legal profession as a whole. Attorneys and law students with doubts or questions about their career choices will find a wealth of reassurance and good advice in this book. Nº de ref. de la librería AAC9780195392326
