Leverage Your Judicial Clerkship for a Successful Private Sector Career: Book Review

You might find yourself with a little more time than you would otherwise have in private practice. I say “might” because every clerkship is different since every Judge has a unique way of managing his or her case load. Some clerks will work longer hours than private practice attorneys; however, most will not. If you are a term clerk and just started in the fall, the job search is not immediately pressing. Should you find yourself with some down time there are two good books I recommend picking up: one to help you with long-term financial planning and a second to help with your job search.

Real Life Financial Planning For Young Lawyers: A Young Lawyer’s Guide to Building the Financial House of their Dreams, by Thomas A. Haunty and Todd D. Bramson. This short read provides a solid conceptual framework for making good financial decisions as an attorney.
