Lawyers can't bill for every activity. Unfortunately with the focus on billable time, young lawyers are missing out on a huge area in legal practice - the non-billable aspect. Non-billable is a quick hit of advice in short segments, delivered frequently, to focus your attention on a specific issue, address a question, or just have a bit of a rant about an issue facing the legal profession. Covering topics ranging from legal marketing, rainmaking, networking, career advice, professional development and legal practice generally - non-billable is foundational for young lawyers who know you can't charge the client for everything. Lawyers and attorneys everywhere will benefit from taking a few minutes out of their day to listen to Non-billable.

    Is Being an Introvert a Disadvantage in law?

    Is Being an Introvert a Disadvantage in law?

    Lots of lawyers are introverted.  We like quiet, solitary tasks where we can focus, analyse and distill answers.
    And yet, the noise of the community, the pressure of networking, and the need to market our services sometimes tells us that we are at a disadvantage.  Is it true?

    How to Get Noticed in a Big Firm

    I hear a lot of people asking how to get noticed in a big, noisy, and highly competitive firm.
    And I can’t help but wonder – what are you doing now to get noticed?
    Are you actually willing to try anything, or are you cowering, terrified of the risks that come with sticking your neck out?
    Let’s talk – nonbillable.

    Is it Worth Doing a Masters Degree?

    Is it Worth Doing a Masters Degree?

    I get this question fairly often – should young lawyers (or law students) do a masters degree, and is it worthwhile?
    Well – as is often the case, the answer is either yes with a but, or no with an unless.
    Enjoy!

    How to Get Anything you Want Done, Ever (sort of)

    How to Get Anything you Want Done, Ever (sort of)

    I hear a lot of complaints about lack of time.  Can’t get this done, had to put that to one side.
    And it could all be true, but the reality is that if you want something enough you can get it done.
    You just need to shift your priorities.
    That’s what today’s episode of NonBillable is about.
