The reader will discover the legal significance of lobsters, rabbits, bulldogs and flatworms; the dangers of paper cuts and naked lawyers; the philosophical value of time sheets; how to know when you’re wrong, and when you’re wrong about being wrong. 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.
