Book recommendation: ’21st Century Solicitor’ by Steve Weiner

“[A] tome of exceptional clarity…Weiner’s book is sensible and down-to-earth. Few would disagree with his premise that to succeed, today’s lawyer has to be more than merely technically proficient and Weiner ably distils the ways that a junior lawyer can make a difference.Alex WadeThe TimesThursday December 15, 2011There is no doubt in my mind that if you want to learn how to communicate effectively, increase your personal brand and commerciality to impress your colleagues, then you should take the time to read this bookWhile there is no manual, 21st Century Solicitor does a lot to bridge the gap so that paralegals, trainee solicitors and newly qualifieds can rest assured that not only are they making an impression, but that it is the right one and one that will be remembered for the right reasons. It is safe to say that this book is a must read for anyone working as a paralegal, trainee solicitor or newly qualified (and quite possibly could educate a few people who are already qualified).” — Sarah Bolt, Junior Lawyers Division executive committee member, Junior Lawyers Division Blog
