Even if your job is not a public interest position you still should do some pro bono or other charitable work … To be happy in law, you have to … strike a balance among your family life, your firm life, and your personal development.

(Class of 1982)

photo of R. Todd JohnsonMy favorite [movie about the legal profession] of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird. I don't think you can get a better story about what it would be like to be a great lawyer than both the skill that Atticus Finch had and the ethos—you know, his passion to be loyal to his client's cause even in the face of unpopularity. I think it's very inspirational for lawyers.
