Join Erin Gordon, former lawyer and longtime legal affairs journalist, at Books Inc. Laurel Village Look What You Made Me Do: Confronting Heartbreak & Harassment in Big Law!
 
Erin will be in conversation with John Rothmann. 

Fresh out of law school, Erin Gordon was thrilled to launch her career at a major California firm. But within weeks, this 24-year-old found herself the target of blatant workplace bullying and humiliating harassment. With no support from firm administration or her seasoned colleagues, Gordon sought guidance from prominent employment attorneys. They informed her that despite the strength of her case, she could pursue justice or her career – but not both. Frustrated and furious, Gordon left the legal profession but never shook the lingering shame and despair that altered her life forever.

Now longtime journalist Gordon shares the trove of smoking-gun memos, emails and handwritten notes she preserved from that difficult time, as well as fresh interviews with former colleagues, industry insiders, and experts in hostile work environments. Part memoir, part journalism, Look What You Made Me Do is a searing deep dive into Big Law.

A battle cry against unchecked abuse of power and a woman’s misplaced shame, Look What You Made Me Do is an unflinching first-person account of a legal and human drama about the all-too-familiar story of gender discrimination and toxic power.

Her most recent book, Look What You Made Me Do: Confronting Heartbreak & Harassment in Big Law, is a memoir of her first year as an attorney, an unflinching first-person account of a the all-too-familiar story of gender discrimination and toxic power.
