Episode 7: Tom talks criminal defence, workload management and job-hunting
In this episode I interview Tom, an S2 at the Public Defence Service, about life as a junior criminal defence lawyer. This was enlightening for me as I hope it will be for the listeners as I have not once gone near any manner of criminal law since law school (don't worry, I asked him to explain all his acronyms).
In our chat I refer to Seth Godin's doctrine of "pick yourself", a summary of which can be found here, and an elaboration on which can be found running through most of Seth's books, but definitely loudly so in The Icarus Deception.
I also refer to an article by Marcus Elliott about the virtue and value of criminal defence lawyers, and I did so as a teaser, listeners, because said article either does not exist online or does not exist at all. I have put a query into to Mr Elliott's office and will update when I hear back. Rest assured, even if it does not exist, the version my mind created was excellent.
Until next time, listeners, enjoy!
