Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 1, 2008
Law schools do a lot of things well, including teaching students how to brief cases and excel in pretend appellate courtroom arguments. One thing they do not do well enough, however, is train law students how to succeed as lawyers. Instead, most young lawyers enter the profession with little practical knowledge of how to actually practice law, market themselves, and succeed in the business environment common to all law firms and legal services providers. They are - almost literally - thrown to the wolves.
In an attempt to fill this void, Lawyer Learning LLC has launched YoungLawyersInnerCircle.com, a subscription website filled with articles, downloads, and other information designed to help fill the void in most young lawyers' training. Many young lawyers are particularly attracted to the active discussion forum that serves as an online networking resource where members can ask questions, offer advice and suggestions, seek referrals, and exchange resources.
According to managing editor Kevin Harper, an Arizona attorney, the site is also planning to offer video and audio downloads, including insightful interviews with successful attorneys and other relevant professionals. The content at http://www.YoungLawyersInnerCircle.com is supplemented with new information on a regular basis, and full membership is available to all attorneys for a small monthly or annual subscription fee. Members may cancel their memberships at any time.
Young lawyers and old lawyers alike have recognized for decades that there is a void in the training and instruction provided to law students and young lawyers. Lawyer Learning LLC is working hard to fill that need, and YoungLawyersInnerCircle.com is the culmination of years of effort by the site's editors to develop content that will help young lawyers be better, more successful, and happier lawyers.
