LMA Detroit member Jay Harrington has written a new book called The Essential Associate: Step Up, Stand Out, and Rise to the Top as a Young Lawyer. In it, he offers his sage advice for what's required to succeed in the practice of law as well as the business of law in - from both a big law and small law perspective. Jay (who is the chief strategist and co-founder of Harrington Communications) draws from his days as a new associate at Skadden and his experience in starting and running his own small law firm. The book also includes the insights of dozens of top lawyers, general counsel at Fortune 500 companies, and leading consultants to the legal industry.
