Carolyn Elefant to you: Read this right now

Carolyn Elefant is adamant about a letter, "How to Succeed as A Lawyer" (Roland Boyd), that was first published more than 40 years ago in the Texas Bar Journal. Elefant writes:

"On the surface, the letter simply dispenses tips from a father to a son on how to succeed as a lawyer, but the subtext gives us a look at a forty-year legal career rich with integrity, satisfaction and optimism ... when we focus all the time on the business of law, we lose sight of the higher purpose we can serve as lawyers, the changes we can make and the people we can help.  If you read Boyd's letter, you'll be reminded of what brought you to law to begin with and why despite the stresses and the problems, you still want to stay."
