The current metrics and methods that most law firm use in hiring – law school, grades, extracurriculars, work history, an assumed book of business and unstructured interviews – are no better than a coin toss at evaluating which candidates might be successful at any given firm. Worse, many of these processes introduce personal biases into the hiring process that may lead firms to hire the wrong lawyers based upon factors not critical to attorney success.
Success and fit are based more on intangibles – the things you can’t easily see.
Think of it like an iceberg; it’s the 90% below the surface that can sink the ship. Understanding what is there can help you avoid disaster.
