tyl in focus: becoming a partner

For many new lawyers, becoming a law firm partner is both the pinnacle of success and a complete mystery. What does it really mean to make partner? How do you become a partner? Can you be happy if you don’t make partner or if you just don’t want to be a partner? Is there life in the law beyond partnership? If you aren’t sure, this issue of TYL In Focus is for you. In this issue, we tackle the partner mystery. Erin Rhinehart, former managing editor of TYL and recent partner, examines the challenges and rewards that come with the responsibility of partnership. Four lawyers who recently made the transition from associate to partner share their unique perspectives. We offer strategies to help you craft a career you love as well as tips on how to decide if you even want to make the transition. And of course, we cover the financial considerations involved in becoming a partner. Hopefully, with a good understanding of who you are and what is required to be a partner, your choice will be clear. This latest issue of TYL In Focus is a great addition to your digital library. (TYL In Focus: Becoming a Partner, Volume 4 Issue 5, Published June 2017, copyright American Bar Association.)
