This excerpt of the book "Dear J.D.: What to Do with Your Law Degree" helps law students and lawyers identify and commit to a particular law practice among the hundreds of possible choices. Liberty depends on the rule of law, which depends on the frequent, discrete, and minute services of lawyers on behalf of individual, corporate, nonprofit, and public clients. Lawyers must be able to form and manage an effective enterprise to provide those critical services. The first step in doing so involves choosing that enterprise’s mission, strategies, location, clientele, and services. This book Dear J.D. offers a conversational study of how to go about making that important decision of law practices.
