What They Don't Teach You in Law School: How Law Firms Really Work

1989 SU Law grad John Worden is a corporate trial lawyer and equity partner with the San Francisco office of Schiff Hardin. Over John's career, he has realized that there was quite a lot he had to learn on the go and he wished he had some insight about these issues while in law school. Whether you're thinking of working in a small, mid or large firm, this program is not to be missed. Topics covered include: billable hour requirements, practice groups, partnership tracks, equity vs. non-equite partners, profits per partner, the importance of business development, origination credit, billing credits, and conflicts. Pizza will be provided.
