In today's Speaking of Justice, Scott Drake is joined by nationally respected Attorney Kathleen Wu of the firm Andrews and Kurth. Attorney Wu was recently featured in the Wall Street Journal as well as the Texas Lawyer discussing "What women lawyers can learn from Hillary", an opinion piece from a top flight attorney who has developed an impressive reputation both locally in Texas as well as nationally in the area of real estate law.
One of the areas of interest to attorney's nationally, particularly women attorney's, is the ability to learn from and be mentored by other lawyers who have risen to a level of prominence. Kathleen in her article as well as this featured podcast on The Legal Broadcast Network uses Senator and former first Lady Hillary Clinton as an object lesson for women lawyers as to the pit falls that await women attorney's in particular.
What we at LBN particularly like about this podcast, and the accompanying article in Texas Lawyer that you can access by clicking here, is that Kathleen makes no apologies for being tough on herself and associates and in one section advises women attorney's to get a thicker skin, and in another to never under estimate your opponent. This is a really solid podcast and has interest far beyond just "women legal issues" but is an insightful analysis by an attorney who has walked the walk of building a dynamic and successful legal career and has value advice for law students, young lawyers and others looking to build a career and a practice.
