Despite three years of law school, passing the bar and snagging a job, lawyers often are plagued by feelings of being ill-equipped to handle the challenges that practicing law throws at them. They've got the credentials and they look the part, but they don't feel the part. Those feelings have a name: imposter syndrome. In this episode, Reed Smith associate Albert Farr talks about his own experiences with imposter syndrome. In addition, law career coach Jay Harrington, a former Skadden attorney, discusses how to turn those fears into assets.
