Career Management for Attorneys Not Given its Due Importance at Law Schools

There are essentially three phases to a lawyer's career, one of which may or may not ever be realized. They are: (1) the Grinder, (2) the Minder, and (3) the Finder and Binder. The Grinder is the first- through third-year attorney who grinds out legal product—of a sufficient quality and in a billable quantity—to keep the partner and firm happy. Some time around the fourth year (give or take a year), management of other attorneys and a bit of client contact usually come into play. The attorney who is more than seven years out of school and has no clients is the Senior Minder, the most precarious position one can have in the profession. Why? If firm profits ever take a dive, these are the first people fired (in most cases, eventually replaced by less expensive associates). Finally, if knowledge, talent, training, and support from the firm are present, an attorney may become a Finder and Binder, also known as a Rainmaker.


Types Of Summer Jobs And How To Find Them

If you are not on an early graduation plan that will include classes during the summer break, then you need to seek employment that will enhance your legal education and hopefully increase your future employment options. Although first-year students are understandably worn, having survived the first year of battle, they cannot afford either financially, or future-placement-wise, to sit idle or endure unrelated employment.


Landing the Perfect Summer Associate Job

With the slew of law firms closing one after another and the dubious Great Recovery in place of the Great Recession the definition of a “perfect summer associate job” has, of course, changed quite a bit. Depending upon your inclinations, even a non-paying summer job in the government sector may be great for you if it meets your career objectives. But, for the sake of this article, we would be assuming the ‘perfect summer associate’ job to be the job of a summer associate in a private law firm of middle-to-big stature, and one that would almost cement your chances of getting recruited after your J.D.
