The Lawyer Bubble: A Profession in Crisis (Hardcover)
In The Lawyer Bubble, Steven J. Harper reveals how a culture of short-term thinking has blinded some of the nationís finest minds to the long-run implications of their actions. Law school deans have ceded independent judgment to flawed U.S. News & World Report rankings criteria in the quest to maximize immediate results. Senior partners in the nationís large law firms have focused on current profits to enhance American Lawyer rankings and individual wealth at great cost to their institutions. Yet, wiser decisions?being honest about the legal job market, revisiting the financial incentives currently driving bad behavior, eliminating the billable hour model, and more?can take the profession to a better place.
A devastating indictment of the greed, shortsightedness, and dishonesty that now permeate the legal profession, this insider account is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how things went so wrong and how the profession can right itself once again.
