Career Consultant Castigates Yale Law Grad for 'Very Immature' Attitude About Doc Review


A career consultant had a one-word answer for a recent Yale Law School grad who wanted to know if being a “fantastic writer” could offer a guaranteed escape route from the dull routine of document review as an incoming law firm associate: No.

But then Ann Israel went on to amplify her answer, saying that the unidentified fledgling practitioner had a “very immature” attitude toward an aspect of legal work that needs to be done as part of the bigger picture of law firm life.

“There are plenty of attorneys in the major city offices who are not putting in enough hours and would love to be doing doc review versus the threat of being asked to look for another job,” she writes in a New York Lawyer (reg. req.) column. “Wake up to what is happening out there in the real world!”
