Hamer Law Group is pleased to announce that one of its attorneys, Keith Lee, has announced a book deal with ABA Publishing. “The Marble and the Sculptor: From Law School to Law Practice” is scheduled to be released in the Fall of 2013.
The entire legal industry is in a state of flux. Legal work is being automated, down-sized, and outsourced. The amount of work is shrinking as well. Clients have become more intelligent and scrutinizing. Corporate work is being moved in-house. Contract attorneys are on the rise. At the same time, new lawyers are entering the legal marketplace without any guidance on how to evolve into effective providers of professional services. “The Marble and the Sculptor” is focused on providing law students and new lawyers a blueprint on how to transition from student to successful practitioner.
“I have detailed my own growing pains online at Associate’s Mind for nearly three years and offered a transparent look at my own transition process,” says Keith. “In “The Marble and the Sculptor,” I present a detailed, inside view of the path I have taken in effort to become the best attorney I can possibly be. Not that I am finished – I am certainly a work in progress. I hope to always be growing and striving to be a better attorney.”
In addition to the practice of law, Keith is the founder and editor-in-chief of Associate’s Mind, one of the most popular legal blogs in the world. Associate’s Mind has been linked to by the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Above the Law, dozens of blogs and websites, and has been featured as an Editor’s Pick at the Browser.
