Imagine this scenario: you graduated at the top of your class, spent countless hours studying for and crying over the Bar Exam, racked up 30 gazillion dollars in student loans, and, thanks to your intelligence and perseverance, nabbed yourself a job at a prestigious law firm. Good for you!
Then you open your email and see this memo, which has been sent to you and your female colleagues and lists a million things that you -- oh, scatterbrained sweetie pie that you are -- shouldn't be doing as a woman in the courtroom. Obviously, you say "uh" and "like" and "you know" waaay too much, and you can blame your bubbleheaded sorority days for that, but did you know you should also stop dressing in so much chic black (goth is a turn-off) or that you really ought to quit giggling?
Clifford Chance certainly shows many women the light with this memo. But brace yourself because it's actually not all bad advice.
