Professor Toni Jaeger-Fine will discuss her new book, Becoming a Lawyer: Discovering and Defining your Professional Persona. Our success—or lack thereof—is determined largely by a range of attitudes and behaviors over which each of us has complete control. She will discuss foundations of a robust professional persona, followed by elements of professionalism from the inside (self-management) and professionalism with the outside (relationships). The book’s main message is that with the right amount of intentionality and dedication, each of us can achieve greater success and happiness.
