Included among the book’s many lessons on surviving in the law are:

• why mediocrity is the key to success in the law;
• how a law firm can achieve prominence, profit and perfection;
• what Socrates would tell you over a latte; and
• why lawyers are like lobsters.

Author

Marcus Elliott was a barrister. His work as a barrister primarily involved going to his office each day, sitting in front of his computer and typing. Sometimes he spoke to people on the phone. He was successful at all of these things. On occasion he went to Court. You will not find any reported case in which he was losing counsel.


IN THE AUTHOR'S WORDS...


"I wrote the book for every lawyer who has woken up on a cold, wet Monday morning and questioned their choice of career, as I have done many times. I wanted to give solace and encouragement to people who are working in a difficult, but also very rewarding profession. I have tried to hold a mirror up to the profession in as many styles as I could- short essays, fiction, poems, satire, extracts from allegedly stolen or recovered documents and a mathematical equation. I hope the book is entertaining as well as useful for lawyers and potential lawyers."
