In the annals of “reasons to become a lawyer,” deciding to go to law school on a bet isn’t really the worst. Thinking you need to go to make $1 million is.
With summer programs in full-swing, lawyers are attending marathon lunches at high-end restaurants. But just because a lunch is expensive doesn’t make it awesome. There are foodies with a finer sense of cuisine out there who can find real gems for your all-expense paid lunch.
That’s why the best lawyer to bring along for a long lunch is this Paul Weiss alum who wrote a book about food around the world. She’s sort of like Anthony Bourdain with a law degree…
Jodi Ettenberg really did go to law school on a bet. Thankfully, as a native of Montreal, Ettenberg’s law school bill did not approach the mounds of debt racked up by American students.
After stints at Paul Weiss and Davis & Gilbert, Ettenberg opted to travel, write, and eat. As the proprietor of Legal Nomads and the author of The Food Traveler’s Handbook (affiliate link), Ettenberg travels the world in search of great eats.
Let’s meet her:
For New York readers, if you want to see Ettenberg, she’s talking tomorrow at the Apple Store on 14th. Here’s the link to RSVP (part of the scroll below the top module).
