New lawyers in search of career advice may want to check out the "Swimming Lessons for Baby Sharks" newsletter
Author of the wildly popular legal career advice book Swimming Lessons for Baby Sharks: The Essential Guide to Thriving as a New Lawyer Grover Cleveland (yes, that's his real name) has been a good friend to the Legal Skills Prof Blog over the years. Yet I only just discovered that he's also got a quarterly newsletter that dispenses sage advice on career development issues for new lawyers and soon-to-be new lawyers. The best part is that it's free! The Q3 edition of Grover's newsletter features a short piece on the importance of racking up serious facetime at work in order to build strong interpersonal relationships despite the fact that a lot of legal work today, as well as professional networking, can be done remotely via technology. Check out Grover's newsletter here and the Lessons for Baby Sharks website here.
