Episode Notes

During this week’s conversation, Keith Lee talks with Sam about his book, The Marble and the Sculptor and how new lawyers can become good lawyers. Before that, Sam waxes poetic about one of his favorite lawyer-friendly iPhone/iPad/Mac apps, Soulver.

Look, if you have to do calculations and you have an iPhone, iPad, or Mac (the iPad version is probably the best one, actually), get Soulver. I’ve never found anything as good for calculating settlement offers or shareholder distributions.

The transition from law school to law practice isn’t easy. Keith Lee’s The Marble and the Sculptor is pretty essential reading for new law-school graduates. Just like today’s podcast is essential listening for law-school graduates and lawyers alike.
