Law school is a strange game, and when you're starting out it seems like no one knows the rules. It's crucial to hit the ground running, but how? Trust the folks who've been there to distill what matters and toss the rest. Michael Seringhaus and Brian Savage have been through law school - Savage at Michigan and Seringhaus at Yale - and after a couple years sharing advice with friends, created Law School Done Right, a trim and potent little guide to what matters and what works in law school. What do you wish you'd known when you started law school? That's the simple question the authors posed. Seringhaus and Savage compiled their own best tips, and then polled dozens of colleagues and former classmates. This group included recent grads of law schools both inside and outside the U.S. News Top 50-grads who scored jobs at top national law firms, who landed prestigious judicial clerkships (including U.S. Supreme, Federal Appellate, Federal District, and State Supreme Courts), and some who are now young law professors themselves. When it comes to law school, these folks killed it. And you can too. Law School Done Right distills this invaluable expertise into bite-sized advice. There's no filler, just proven tips covering all aspects of law school life. Read them, and do it right. This revised and updated print edition contains updated content including an all-new section on choosing a law school.

Feminist Fight Club

An Office Survival Manual for a Sexist Workplace

Author: Jessica Bennett

Publisher: HarperCollins

ISBN: 0062439790

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 336

View: 5315

Part manual, part manifesto, a humorous yet incisive guide to navigating subtle sexism at work—a pocketbook Lean In for the Buzzfeed generation that provides real-life career advice and humorous reinforcement for a new generation of professional women. It was a fight club—but without the fighting and without the men. Every month, the women would huddle in a friend’s apartment to share sexist job frustrations and trade tips for how best to tackle them. Once upon a time, you might have called them a consciousness-raising group. But the problems of today’s working world are more subtle, less pronounced, harder to identify—and, if Ellen Pao is any indication, harder to prove—than those of their foremothers. These women weren’t just there to vent. They needed battle tactics. And so the fight club was born. Hard-hitting and entertaining, Feminist Fight Club blends personal stories with research, statistics, infographics, and no-bullsh*t expert advice. Bennett offers a new vocabulary for the sexist workplace archetypes women encounter everyday—such as the Manterrupter who talks over female colleagues in meetings or the Himitator who appropriates their ideas—and provides practical hacks for navigating other gender landmines in today’s working world. With original illustrations, Feminist Mad Libs, a Negotiation Cheat Sheet, as well as fascinating historical research and a kit for “How to Start Your Own Club,” Feminist Fight Club tackles both the external (sexist) and internal (self-sabotaging) behaviors that plague today’s women—as well as the system that perpetuates them.
