What is legal practice really about? 

Is it a life of 20 hour days, of being "seen" in the office, of engaging in activities that brutalize your soul and sap your strength? What does life really look like when you escape the safety of law school and step out into the real world. 

Those are the questions that Thomas is asking right now. His mentor, Andrew, has a hard set of lessons that he thinks Thomas needs to learn in order to be a successful lawyer, and doesn't hold back with his advice for the young professional. 

Having finished his studies, Thomas has some truths he must embrace about his job if he's going to survive and thrive in a legal career. After all, the pressure is on - a long history of legal talent runs in the family, and Thomas' parents certainly have high expectations. 

In Practice is a series of letters from Andrew to Thomas in which he attempts to "set Thomas straight" in his career. 

In Practice will get you thinking about your legal career. It will get you thinking about what really matters and what doesn't. It will get you thinking about what you want to spend your life doing, and what you don't.
