Don’t Let Poor Negotiation Skills Doom Your Entrepreneurial Venture

by Samuel Dinnar and Lawrence Susskind, co-authors of “Entrepreneurial Negotiation: Understanding and Managing the Relationships that Determine Your Entrepreneurial Success“ Eighty to ninety percent of all start-ups will fail. While there are many reasons for this, one of the biggest problems new ventures face is poor negotiation skills.

Book review: “Ruth Bader Ginsburg”: The evolution of a justice

One might think that the market for treatments of the life and legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would be saturated by now. The past three years alone have seen the release of a carefully curated collection of the justice’s writings, “My Own Words,” a surprise hit documentary about her life and career, “RBG,” and a recent feature film, “On the Basis of Sex,” which focuses on the first sex-discrimination case Ginsburg argued in federal court. Now comes “Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Life,” by Jane...

Costume Designers Help Establish a Film’s Point of View at First Look

To look at Felicity Jones as the young Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the opening scene of “On the Basis of Sex” is to glimpse a microcosm of the next two hours: Outfitted in a 1950s-silhouetted dress, jacket and seamed pantyhose, Ginsberg is one of the few women at a Harvard Law School introductory seminar among […]

‘On the Basis of Sex’ Director Mimi Leder Says the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Story is the Story of Change [Interview]

On the Basis of Sex is the story of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Not the Supreme Court Justice we know now, but the Ruth Bader Ginsburg who was one of the first female students at Harvard Law School, who began her legal career fighting to overturn a case of gender discrimination. Felicity Jones plays Ruth and the case in question is the Moritz case. Charles Moritz was denied a caretaker tax write-off because it was assumed caretakers could only be women. Ruth’s husband Martin Ginsburg actually point...

Graduates who flock to Wall Street, Silicon Valley, and big law in search of prestige might be in for a harsh wake-up call only a few years later

People dream of working for big-name companies like Goldman Sachs or Google ... so why would anyone ever leave such a prestigious job? Many workers quit high-paying jobs at impressive companies because, as their careers progress, prestige feels less important than it did when they were younger. Other factors, like the quality of their coworkers and the company culture, may turn out to matter more. That may be because you can always have the impressive job on your résumé — but it may also be ...

Acceptable Racism

Hundreds of protesters gather in the Gaslamp area to display their thoughts about Donald Trump's presidential campaign at an anti-Trump demonstration. U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- How appropriate would it be for a major publicly held American company to hire a person with a history of having publicly made the following statements and many others like them? (In the interest of brevity, I shall list only four.) “The world could get by just fine with zero black people.” “It's kind of sick how much jo...

An Interesting Opinion on the Right to Jury Trial that Can Relate to 101 and 285

By David Hricik In the three prior posts (hey, it’s a trend!) on Section 285, I pointed out the need for lawyers to advise principals of patentees that they may, personally, be on the hook for liability for fee shifting.  For example, if the patentee is an asset-less shell corporation, the accused infringer may seek (perhaps should seek, promptly) to join principals of the patentee in the event that the case is found exceptional.  Likewise, given the long-standing line of cases (going back to Ul...

"I’m a Democrat and a Feminist. And I Support Betsy DeVos’s Title IX Reforms."

Writes Lara Bazelon, the director of the criminal juvenile justice and the racial justice clinics at the University of San Francisco School of Law in a NYT op-ed. She is concerned about due process and "racial dynamics."[In the law school clinic I direct,] we see what the Harvard Law School professor Janet Halley described in a 2015 law review article: “The general social disadvantage that black men continue to carry in our culture can make it easier for everyone in the adjudicative process to p...

SCOTUS Map: November 2018

With its newest member seated on the Supreme Court (and officially included in the latest class picture), the justices continued to project a united front, emphasizing their familial bonds and eschewing the labels of “conservative” and “liberal” altogether. “It was Justice Thomas who tells me that when he first came to the court, another justice approached him and said, ‘I judge you by what you do here. Welcome,’” Justice Sonia Sotomayor recounted in a recent interview with CNN’s David Axelrod...

SCOTUS for law students: Justice William Brennan and Supreme Court avoidance

Even before Justice Brett Kavanaugh replaced Justice Anthony Kennedy this fall, some commentators were suggesting that liberals might want to avoid appealing cases to the increasingly conservative Supreme Court. “If you are liberal,” wrote Ian Millhiser of the Center for American Progress in 2014, “you should probably try to keep your case away from the justices.” With the appointment of Kavanaugh and the expectation that the majority will be more conservative, the idea of Supreme Court avoida...
