Description


Be the lawyer you want to be, not the one you were told to be.

Remember why you wanted to become a lawyer? You wanted to make a difference, help others, and create positive change both inside and outside the profession. You still do.

But the legal profession, by design, puts us in a box, restricting our creativity, and blunting connection. In fact, we're conditioned to disengage from others and from ourselves to be better at our jobs. We put on a lawyer mask and become imposters.

Today's leaders cannot be held back by these limiting restraints.

Lawyers are made to lead. We strive to be good counselors, good advocates, and even good adversaries. Good leadership, however, is ultimately about showing up as yourself. And to do that, we need to be free to be ourselves without having to leave the profession.

We can be lawyers and be authentic.

In The Lawyer Leader, author Ritu Goswamy, Esq., invites you to step into a more authentic, more powerful version of yourself, and learn how going deeper within can help you guide your colleagues and create change in the legal profession by going deeper within.

Whether you've read Ritu Goswamy's The New Billable Hour and The Holistic Lawyer or not, this book is for you: a lawyer ready to step up and lead. Join those of us in the profession actively guiding our colleagues, clients, and society to a new era.

"Well-written, concise, evocative, and heartening, this book will help any lawyer (and law student) connect to the lawyer leader within." - Rodney O. Fong, Legal Educator

The Lawyer Leader is a great read As attorneys it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle and not take the time to do the things necessary to make us better practitioners. This book helped me refocus and recalibrate, and I can see myself reading it yearly as a means of re-energizing myself and my practice. - Duane O. King, Esq., Author of Stop Talking. Cut the Check.: Everything You Need to Know When You Get Injured in an Auto Accident

"A practical guide for how to lead your own life by lightening your load, slowing down, and re-prioritizing, so that you have enough clarity to share your purpose and truest, "best self" with others." - Nadeen Aljijakli, Esq.

"Rooted in wisdom, this book walks you through its lessons to understand that the power to lead is within. A must-read if you are on the path to improving yourself and the way you practice law." - Vilerka Solange Bilbao, Entrepreneur and Attorney
