Ultimate Guide to Going In-House and Succeeding as Corporate Counsel

$49.00

Our Ultimate Guide to Going In-House and Succeeding as Corporate Counsel is a 62-page, 23,000-word, e-book that peels back the curtain on everything you need to know about getting an in-house position and succeeding once you walk in the door. It’s priced at $49 because (1) by paying for it you are more likely to implement the lessons learned in here and get yourself out of the law firm; (2) it’s a tip of the cap to the “sweet spot” for going in-house: 4 to 9 years inside of a law firm in private practice; and (3) it contains template cover letters, negotiation scripts, a form CV, and lots of other goodies that I think you’ll find make it well-worth the price.

The Guide is in a (locked for editing) Word format, so you’ll be able to cut and paste each template and scripts into your own documents as you ramp up your job search (note that these are the same templates that you’ll find for stand-alone purchase elsewhere here in our Dollar Barrister shop).
