Prof. Henderson on Legal Success
National Jurist this month features an article by our own Prof. Bill Henderson on changes in what firms should be looking for in new hires. Traditionally those with the best LSAT scores, the highest ranked schools, and the best grades are favored. Prof. Henderson argues that just those limited factors aren’t enough to be predictors of legal success, and particularly in this tight job market, firms need to be looking for much more when they hire. What do you think makes for a good and successful lawyer? Are hiring practices likely to change accordingly?
