Best Friends at the Bar

When I'm not cooking, I'm a lawyer. My friend Susan Blakely recently released her new book, Best Friends at the Bar: What Women Need to Know About a Career in the Law published by Wolters Kluwer/Aspen. Best Friends at the Bar: What Women Need to Know about a Career in the Law addresses the realities of law firm practice, especially in large firms, and gives pre-law students, law students, and new attorneys a realistic view of the opportunities and hazards most often encountered by women lawyers. Drawing on her many years of practicing law and mentoring young lawyers and with the help of other women in all areas of the legal profession, her "best friends at the bar," Susan Smith Blakely strives to help young women entering the legal profession begin their careers with open eyes and a more level playing field than women lawyers of past generations. You can purchase it here. You can also find Best Friends at the bar at:

Cuddle up with some holiday cookies and enjoy some insight for young lawyers and students interested in careers in the law. Congratulations Susan!

How do you find time to be a lawyer, go to cooking classes, do a cooking show, AND cook?
