GIFTS FOR NEW LAWYERS STARTING THEIR LAW CAREER
- Leather Legal Briefcase
For most the goal of law school is to get a high-powered legal job. There’s something about the glint of shiny leather by your side that exudes authority and says, “Now this is someone who has their act together!” — at least more so than that old Jansport backpack with the strap that’s about to fall off. So make the right impression and ace that interview!
- Personalized Executive Portfolio
A leather executive portfolio is something that law students need to bring to every job interview, and will later use for client meetings and day-to-day organization around the office. Adding a personal touch makes this a classy and memorable gift!
- Book: How Judges Think
Perhaps the one thing that’s most important for a new lawyer to understand is judges: how they think, why they make the decisions that they do, and how you can get them on your side. The Hon. Richard Posner practically serves it up on a platter for you in this brand new book guaranteed to give you a competitive edge.
- Personalized Desktop Gadget Charging Station
Here’s a gift that wouldn’t even have existed 10 years ago, but for some poeple is hard to imagine going without today. For the on-the-go person who has a Blackberry, iPod, cell phone, camera, laptop, etc. that all need to be charged, this neat charging station will turn the desktop mess into a slick professional looking personalized home for your gadgets!
