The Modern Law Library

book cover

Many people promote a daily practice of meditation, spiritual contemplation and mindfulness as a way to improve your personal life and well-being. Attorney Jeremy Richter argues that creating a similar daily ritual to focus on developing your professional skills can be just as helpful to your clients, career and law practice.

In this episode of the Modern Law Library, the ABA Journal’s Lee Rawles speaks with Richter, author of Building a Better Law Practice: Become a Better Lawyer in Five Minutes a Day. The book is structured to provide a daily reading on personal and professional development over a seven-week time period.

Richter discusses why he decided to channel energy into blogging during the early years of his practice as an insurance litigator, and how that expanded into writing for other outlets—including for the ABA Journal’s Your Voice series—and eventually into Building a Better Law Practice, which is published by the ABA.

He also shares some revelations from his first years in practice that became inspirations for the book, and how his background as a former high school teacher helped him shape the book’s lessons.
