Product Description
Customer Reviews
Shabby and lumbering, with a face like a Norfolk dumpling, Father Brown makes for an improbable super-sleuth. But his innocence is the secret of his success: refusing the scientific method of detection, he adopts instead an approach of simple sympathy, interpreting each crime as a work of art, and each criminal as a man no worse than himself...

Customer Reviews
In this groundbreaking book, Scalia and Garner systematically explain all the most important principles of constitutional, statutory, and contractual interpretation in an engaging and informative style – with hundreds of illustrations from actual cases. Is a burrito a sandwich? Is a corporation entitled to personal privacy? If you trade a gun for drugs, are you “using a gun” in a drug transaction? The authors grapple with these and dozens of equally curious questions while explaining the most principled, lucid, and reliable techniques for deriving meaning from authoritative texts. Meanwhile, the book takes up some of the most controversial issues in modern jurisprudence. The authors write with a well-argued point of view that is definitive yet nuanced, straightforward yet sophisticated.

We are all solo, yet none of us is solo.<br /><br />This realization is the key to designing a future-proof path in the legal industry.<br /><br />Through this transparent and often inspiring personal narrative, author Mike Whelan shares the importance of a new model for legal practice built on principles of specialization and collaboration.<br /><br />Mike begins by describing the failed system we've been taught, one built upon time and monopolized access to information. He calls this system "The Churn" and lays out the history and elements of that harmful model. He then offers an alternative that addresses every dangerous element of The Churn, finally asking how you'll forge your own path forward.<br /><br />The stakes could not be higher. Data consistently shows that lawyers are not respected. Studies also reveal the toll this takes on lawyers, who are at significant risk of depression and substance abuse. The Churn works for no one, Mike argues, and it's time to propose something different.<br /><br />Mike does that in thought-provoking fashion by sharing his own path. He looks back at his pre-law career in logistics to define a "Legal Supply Chain" and how a collaborative model might work in law. By understanding these principles of specialization and collaboration, Mike believes that lawyers can follow their own bliss and deliver better for the consumers and societies we aim to serve.<br /><br />Throughout the book, Whelan shares the work of great scientists and sociologists in a way that is easy to understand and apply. He finds that all successful complex systems work in a similar way, and that the legal field doesn't work that way at all. Only through systems thinking and redesign can we defeat the Churn and provide better for both consumers and lawyers.<br /><br />Here's how early readers describe the ideas found in Lawyer Forward...<br /><br />"This book is for every lawyer, and especially every solo, who has ever felt worn down or trapped by the shackles of traditional law practice. Lawyer and master storyteller Mike Whelan has written a highly personal, deeply engaging, and thoroughly pragmatic guide to breaking those chains and regaining the freedom to have the fulfilling legal career you always wanted." -Jordan Furlong, Law21 and author of Law is a Buyer's Market<br /><br />"If you've ever been tired, stressed, and worn out by your law practice, this book is for you. Lawyer Forward captures the all-too-real struggle that solo small lawyers face. Mike's engaging story weaves in science, history, and pop culture as he reveals the big picture we've been missing and then shows you the way out of 'The Churn.' This book is witty and engaging. It will change the way you practice law." -Jess Birken, Birken Law and Hack Your Practice<br /><br />"Filled with personal and professional anecdotes, well-researched case studies, and the author’s unique ability to distill and explain oft-confusing concepts, Mike persuasively lays out a roadmap for lawyers to carve out their own space in the future of the legal profession." -Nicole Abboud, Gen Why Lawyer<br /><br />If you are ready to rethink the nature of "lawyering," to defeat the Churn and map your own path into the future of law, read your copy of Lawyer Forward and share another with a young attorney. That is how these ideas will make the change the legal industry needs.
