On Call Counsel: Suite of Professional Development Articles


"Being" a professional is a misnomer. "Becoming" is a better paradigm.

These articles, if read attentively, will go a very long way to pointing the legal professional toward the skills, perspectives, attitudes and actions necessary to "become" a professional in the fullest, most productive, and most satisfying sense.

Here you will learn about attitudes in beginning a job search or beginning again your practice within or without your existing platform.

You will be shown step-by-step how to develop and maintain a professional network of contacts and colleagues.

You will be given a framework for understanding what it means to be a professional in today's legal market.

In short, it is your shorthand 'art of war' for being all that an attorney must be in this strange, new legal market.
