The Lawyer Bubble: A Profession in Crisis
 
Date: 04/16/2014
 
Location: The Chicago Bar Association, 321 South Plymouth Court, Chicago, IL 60604
 

As part of the YLS' Future of the Profession Series, join us for an interactive and thought provoking program as we welcome the author of The Lawyer Bubble: A Profession in Crisis, Steven J. Harper. Reception and book signing to follow.

In The Lawyer Bubble, lawyer and law professor Steven J. Harper investigates how the legal profession arrived at this crisis. He indicts the widespread fixation on rankings, the bottomless greed of equity partners, and the abdication of responsibility by law-industry leaders. In this meticulously researched and passionately argued book, Harper exposes dirty secrets behind the legal profession's malaise and explains what steps can be taken to repair the damage before it's too late as well as what it means for new lawyers entering the profession and strategies for succeeding in this environment.
