- Being subjected to psychological warfare at the hands of her co-workers wasn’t exactly what Amelia Clarke had in mind when she was in law school, but welcome to the world of Biglaw where fear, intimidation and the occasional threat of violence are the tactics used to get associates to work harder, stay late and never, ever make a mistake.
- When Amelia Clarke lands a job at a prestigious law firm in NYC she had visions of expensive suits, attractive colleagues, and glamorous offices overlooking the skyline. Not one of those fantasies included pointing an air canister at her colleague, zapping him with cold air in an effort to wake him from his coke-induced haze.
- Perched in glittering New York City skyscrapers, a collection of elite law firms lure thousands of Ivy League graduates with promises obscene salaries, generous perks and offices that are run like small cities. This is the world of Biglaw.
- Amelia Clarke has mountain of student loan debt and a coveted position at a prestigious law firm in NYC that could bail her out of it. She just needs to keep her head down and work. It sounded so easy to her when she accepted the offer at Freedman &Downs, but that was before she realized that a penchant for psychological warfare was practically a job requirement.
