Advice for new lawyers

Good stuff from the WSJ, much of which translates pretty easily into economics land (or even sociology land).

I would emphasize the part about liking your job and the part about being careful to get realistic evaluations of your work as you move along the tenure track (or its analogue in government or the private sector). The part about having multiple cheerleaders is good too. Don't rely on one senior faculty member to pull you through a close tenure case. Make sure you've got a whole team.
