I've broken rules 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, 10, 12, 13, 19, and 21, just about half the rules in this book. Each and every time I broke one of these rules, I felt the consequences: loss of trust by my supervising partner, looking like an idiot, looking lazy, the list goes on and on. Had I read Lund's book, Jagged Rocks of Wisdom: Professional Advice for the New Attorney, before start ...more

This book was mailed to me by a law firm before I began a 1L Summer Associate position at the firm. I found it helpful in some regards and outdated in others. There is no mention of best practices in a collaborative work environment.

Jagged Rocks of Wisdom: Professional Advice for the New Attorney, by Morten Lund, provides important, relevant, practical, and helpful advice that tends to be overlooked and left out of law school curriculum.

This is a very easy read, with very large font. Much like Biglaw: How to Survive the First Two Years of Practice in a Mega-Firm, Or, the Art of Doc Review, There just isn't a lot of content, so many things are repeated. A better format would have been a long article but that doesn't sell books.
