Making Partner is an essential book for any young lawyer looking to take control of his or her career. As a senior associate, I wish I had the benefit of Mr. Gropper's book when I was starting my career. Making Partner is an easy-to-read guide to navigating the beginning stages of a legal career, but would also benefit more-senior attorneys looking for a refresher or transitioning to a new employer or area of practice. In addition, although written with an eye towards law firm advancement, the skills and tips in Making Partner will equally help attorneys looking to join or advance in a government or corporate role. Unlike other books that give vague, general suggestions that are often difficult to put into practice, Making Partner provides detailed, easy to execute tips and ideas for advancing your career, and would benefit any law student or recent graduate looking to start their career off on the right foot.
