Richard L. Hermann’s prolific writing career is focused on providing practical and tactical legal career management information and advice. With his nearly 20 years of counseling seasoned attorneys in transition to his coaching of law students about to embark on their careers, Hermann’s in-depth knowledge of legal employment opportunities, and the processes necessary for candidates to get the job, are unmatched.

In his latest work, 21st Century Legal Careers, he counters the  “there are no jobs for lawyers” mantra with a series of concise booklets pinpointing the hot practice areas and employment fields, which are producing jobs today and show strong future growth.  Each booklet features: an introduction to the area; a review of the metrics  forecasting the opportunities; what the work is; where the jobs are; what does it pay and more.  (Titles available in print exclusively at the NALP bookstore.)
