Hello there, friend.
I’m just writing to check in and let you know some of the plans for the New Year and the blog. Don’t worry. Things have been going well so we are, of course, going to keep this going. I just wanted to let you know what I’m thinking and get some feedback if there are certain things that you are interested in/changes that you would like to see.
I started this blog with the goal to help new/young lawyers and therefore started a “New Lawyer Series” to address some of the topics that I felt would be most helpful for young lawyers. I think it would also be helpful to address other types of lawyers and I plan to work on two more series in the new year directed at 1) foreign-trained lawyers (since I am one) and 2) ‘alternative’ career paths for lawyers. I put alternative in quotes as I really just mean any career that is not practicing law. (I’m hoping that that series will take the form of interviews, so if you or anyone you know is not practicing and would be amenable to either an in-person or email interview, please let me know!)
I hope you’re as excited about reading about those things as I am to start working on them. There will of course be other posts aimed at just general concerns/observations about the legal profession, but I think it’s nice to have something to anchor it all by.
I hope you all have a great new year and I will be back here mid-January! Follow me on Twitter and Instagram for more frequent updates and a view of the daily comings and goings.
