Law School: A Few Short and Plain Statements

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

I just approved the final galley for my next book, with aforementioned title–just now.  This moment.  Nothing better than getting another huge galley off the desk–collective sigh of exhausted relief! Apparently, it’s just in time for a few people who have contacted me of late who are “thinking about law school.”

If I rewind to 2006 and 2007 (something my friends know is not my favorite thing–dwelling in the past–), I loved learning about the process of applying to and considering law school.  The people I met through my second book, The Life Science Lawyer, had great insights, particularly for the life science geek in me to consider law school.  And, some of the folks I interviewed for that project have become long term mentors to me, which has been one of the best parts.

Ironic, considering that one of my favorite parts about law school was not the process itself, but the people I met, through a project, which had nothing to do with law school per se.  The wisdom of the people who shared their stories with me prepared me mentally for the challenge of learning the law, before I even stepped into a classroom.  Interesting.

This past week, someone randomly emailed me (another life scientist) who has been thinking about law school and business school and wanted to pick my brain.  Of course I said the book was coming…standby for a few weeks.  But the reason why I wrote this new book on law school was to KEEP IT REAL for everyone else who is pondering the thought of it.  It’s kind of my karmic obligation to pay forward the wisdom that 30 other life science lawyers shared with me when I started my journey, and sharing a few things I picked up on my own during the law school roller coaster too.  Now that I’m ending my own, it’s payback time!

(p.s. – if you want to follow the magic of the new book, there’s a Facebook Fanpage just set up…and keep your eyes on the  website, which should have links to the book in early 2013.)

Read all about it – the 4th book on life science lawyers!

I’ve Got a Secret…

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

Ssshhh…..but today was the soft launch of my 4th book, The Life Science Lawyer.  Only the people who know about it, are you, my loyal blog followers.  If you participated in the project, thanks!, and your own copy is on order.  To everyone else, please consider checking it out.

It won’t be announced to the rest of the world until the book is on Amazon, but for now, you have the exclusive.

Forward v. Backward

No wonder I’m tired.  I’ve been feverishly working on my faculty activity report all day for 2008 (aka a performance management document).  I was really lucky to have the opportunity to do a lot last year.  But, the work (at least on the report) still isn’t finished. I’m not usually one to look back, I instead try to look forward.

Speaking of looking forward, I have my final review of edits tonight for the 4th book project!  A description is here, if you might be interested.  It should be out hopefully very soon, so all life scientists contemplating law school can get 30-plus, honest, real world opinions on those who have gone through the process themselves.  (And oh, what a process it is!)  Would everyone do both life science and law degrees all over again if they could?  Tune in and read to find out….
