Those who started before us and are now in enviable positions — partners, general counsel, etc. — have set the bar quite high, becoming renowned in their fields and building significant books of business, casting large shadows over young attorneys who are racing to catch up. Those behind us — law students, summer associates, etc. — are working harder than ever to advance in an increasingly difficult job market. Those among us — fellow young lawyers — are vying for experiences that will help propel their careers forward. This creates a dilemma for young lawyers seeking to distinguish themselves.
