    Time and Workplace Management for Lawyers

    By Amy Louise Jarmon

    You work harder and harder, but it seems less and less gets done. It may be less what you are doing, but more, how you are doing it. Your day-to-day activity includes multiple projects, competing deadlines, and unexpected crises. Without good strategies to manage the demands, a lawyer can become overwhelmed by the fast pace of law practice. Too many lawyers cope with their workloads by just spending longer hours at the office. They settle into a survival mentality that is highly stressful and personally unrewarding.

    This valuable book will provide you with strategies that will help you gain control over your professional life so that you can still have a fulfilling personal life outside the office. In Time and Workplace Management for Lawyers you'll find practical advice for making time and work management decisions that will lead you to become more productive during your workday. It's written for both new lawyers with minimal work experience as well as lawyers who have practiced for several years and want to become more productive.

    Even the book won't waste your time! It's organized into main headings and subheadings within the text to help you determine which sections will be most useful given your own expertise with time and work management strategies. Choose the sections you need and skip the sections that speak to areas in which you are already proficient.

    Large or small, whatever type of legal practice, your use of technology, and sophistication of practice, this book takes a middle-ground approach that will encompass the most typical characteristics of legal employers. Although the legal workplace throughout the book will be designated generically by a law firm" descriptor, all the strategies are relevant to any legal employer's environment.
