Summary
"[This book] discusses the reality, causes, manifestations, and consequences of fear in legal education and practice, from the standpoint of law students, junior attorneys, and clients. It analyzes fear from a cognitive, physical, and emotional perspective. The book draws guidance from how other industries address fear (and mistake-making) in education and training. The book concludes with a four-step process for law students and lawyers to reframe fear into fortitude: (1) identifying scenarios in our personal and professional lives that should induce fear but do not, and those that arguably should not, but do; (2) reframing and rebooting our mental approach to fear in lawyering—using vulnerability, authenticity, and humility to tap into personal power; (3) cultivating an athlete’s mindset toward the physicality of fear; and (4) fostering a culture of fortitude in tackling individual legal challenges and in helping others within our profession untangle fears."--
