Following the success of her first book, 50 Lessons for Lawyers: Earn more. Stress less. Be awesome., law firm coach and author Nora Riva Bergman is returning with a new installment, 50 Lessons for Women Lawyers – From Women Lawyers. With contributions from Bergman and 49 women lawyers from the United States and Canada, her book provides lessons for women at every stage of their careers. Contributors include women from all types of practices – including women in private and public practice, current and former national, state, and local bar association presidents, judges, law school deans, entrepreneurs, and other published authors. Releasing on May 1, 2019, 50 Lessons for Women Lawyers – From Women Lawyers incorporates diverse perspectives from a diverse group of women.
Bergman once again combines expert knowledge from her years working as a practicing attorney with her knack for instruction, a skill she refined as a business coach. And this time, she’s featuring 50 valuable lessons provided by dozens of notable business women. Like 50 Lessons for Lawyers: Earn more. Stress less. Be awesome., Bergman designed her new book so that readers can choose to read from beginning to end or skip around to find the lessons most relevant to them – regardless of where they are in their careers or lives.
Though 50 Lessons for Women Lawyers – From Women Lawyers is expansive in its scope, covering topics from carving your own path to leadership to wellness and self-care, Bergman and the book’s other contributors remain practical in their advice. Bergman’s book is timely and centered around the idea that women, especially successful women, should lift other women up. Her book does exactly that.
In Nora’s first book, 50 Lessons for Lawyers: Earn more. Stress less. Be awesome., she shares her strategies for helping lawyers achieve a sound balance between their personal and professional lives.
