Transitioning from law school to law practice can be the most daunting thing you do in your professional career. The Six-Minute Marathon is your survival guide to thriving in BigLaw practice. Andrew Hartman advises the up-and-coming generation of attorneys with humor and practicality. Stories of failed associates and redeeming moments from his twenty-plus years of practice will enlighten you as you venture into the world of law and learn to record your marathon of success in six-minute increments. As a bonus, Caren Ulrich Stacy provides insights from her own nearly twenty year career in professional development. From the initial interview to dressing to impress to networking your way to the top, The Six-Minute Marathon will guide you around the pitfalls that ensnare so many of your unwary colleagues and lead you toward your BigLaw dreams.


"All survival handbooks — lawyers, doctors, architects — tell newly minted professionals how to succeed as a grown-up. You could learn by trial and error and live with the inevitable injuries or you can read Andrew Hartman's fine Handbook and thrive without having a single permanent scar. The choice is yours."

-James B. Zagel, United States District Judge, author of Money to Burn

"Andy's handbook is an absolute must-read for any law student seeking to make a smooth and successful transition to law firm practice. He has been in the trenches and succeeded at prestigious firms and candidly shares his invaluable experiences for the benefit of junior attorneys everywhere."

-Brian P. Kerwin, Corporate Partner, Duane Morris LLP
