Positioning for Success


Here’s another installment of Inside Out with law firm partner Christina Martini and in-house counsel David Susler. They are not only lawyers who practice on different sides of the table, but they are also married. Watch them talk more about this topic with the Better Government Association’s Andy Shaw at ChicagoLawyerMagazine.com.

What advice would you give law students today that’s different from five years ago?

Martini: The legal profession and market have undergone dramatic transformation over the past five years, the likes of which we have never seen before.

The rules of the game continue to evolve. It is important for students to understand and accept this perpetual state of change before investing significant money and time in a law school education. There is also a level of determination, maturity, business savvy and sophistication that is essential for the next generation of lawyers.
