Build a legal career in one of the hottest 21st century employment areas In his 21st Century Legal Career Series, Richard L. Hermann researches, evaluates, and predicts where the employment opportunities are and will be for law graduates. Volume 14, T rains, Planes, and Automobiles: Reinventing Transportation Law, explores transportation technology over time (past, present, and future) and its impact on attorney and JD Advantage job opportunities. Transportation law is a big topic, a broad tent that Hermann details by breaking it down by modes of travel, anticipating where the opportunities and pitfalls lie for legal employment in each. We are poised on the cusp of the biggest revolution in transportation since the invention of the automobile in the late 19th century - self-driving car and truck technology. This revolution is going to affect everyone's daily existence and a lot of attorneys' livelihoods. Trains, Planes and Automobiles, demonstrates how one of the most important job-search and legal career strategies you can adopt is to understand as much as you can about the technology as well as the law. Those attorneys who do this and understand the "law-technology gap" are in the best position to both secure that first job and continue to rise through the professional ranks. Train, Planes and Automobiles is your guide to law jobs in: Motor Vehicles and Roadways (including Infrastructure Development); Aviation and Aerospace; Railroads; Maritime Law and Business. Highlights include: -A Brief History of Transportation Law -Transportation Law Practice Today...and Tomorrow -Why Is Transportation Law Hot? -JD Advantage Job Opportunities -Positioning Yourself for a Transportation Law Job -Compensation -Advance Notice of Transportation Legal Job Opportunities There is little question that driverless cars and trucks, drones and other unmanned aircraft, autonomous ships with minimal or no crews, "trenchless" pipeline technology, and other technological marvels transforming transportation and transportation law are the bow waves of the near future. Their rather sudden emergence has made them leap far ahead of the law's ability to manage and regulate them. Today, few attorneys have any expertise whatsoever in the rules governing (and developing) any of these new, disruptive technologies. That means opportunity. Demand for this special expertise is destined to grow much faster than supply. Hermann leads you through this expansive employment field providing strategies and tactics to help you take advantage of on-going and emerging legal career opportunities.

How To Read More

If you love reading, but for some reason you read less and less, know that everything is fine. It happens.
Our lives today have so many things that distract us - how can we not put books away when all these movies, TV shows, YouTube videos, social networks and endless surfing in online stores are around ...
Yes, it's really hard to resist, but you certainly can!

In this article, we want to share with you some tips to read more often and more successfully.
These are some notes and some practices that we have collected for our SUNDOG BOOKS readers club.
And maybe it will bring more books into your life!

Why do we want/need to read more?

To start reading more, you have to understand why you need it.
And you will be surprised, but your goals can be quite varied:

- for work
If you read a lot on duty, then you definitely need to speed up the process. The logic here is simple: read faster → work faster → more time for books for yourself.

- for education
you need this for your educational career or sometimes you just want to read to learn. And, with all the new alternative ways to gain knowledge (podcasts, online courses and videos), the book still does an excellent job of this task too.

- for self-development
all exercises for increasing speed, one way or another, improve cognition and memory.

- for fun
because good books always = fun!

Book lovers have an additional special goal for reading more often. If you love literature, you will understand what we mean: you want to catch everything - to follow modern literature, and not forget about the classics, look into non-fiction and children's publications. And there’s so much you want to reread! The goals are ambitious, but attainable if you read a lot.


And so - How to read more:
We will tell you about the methods that we use ourselves. Perhaps some will suit you as well.


15 minutes a day

You've probably already heard this rule: if you want to start a healthy habit, devote 15 minutes a day to it. Once upon a time, we all read irregularly, in jumps and starts. Sometimes we cannot open a book we have begun weeks ago. Therefore, you should decide to create a rule: devote at least 15 minutes a day to reading. Try reading before bed, or maybe during lunchtime, or even when you are having your morning coffee.

You will see progress immediately. You will notice that almost always your 15 minutes will grow into half an hour or more. But the most remarkable thing is that in three weeks your hands themselves will be looking for a book.


50 First Pages
This method advises - If the book hasn't hooked you from the first 50 pages, put it aside! Life is too short to read uninteresting books.

It is necessary to change the approach to books. At first it will be hard for you to stop and put the book down. Even if we put the book away, it will seem to reproach us from the shelf, mocking us as quitters. But in the end we should come to one simple thought: if it doesn’t hook your attention, you should not force yourself to read it.

***Fifty pages is not a bad test. Not the most objective, but definitely effective. It helps to determine whether it interests you or not, and whether to spend time on things that do not excite.


Reader's Diary

This should be used to improve the quality of reading - to make it more conscious. For starters, it can be a simple notebook with headings:

  • Author
  • Year of publication
  • Main characters
  • Scene
  • Plot
  • Theme
  • Quotes

And, yes, a reader's diary is not a thing about quantity, but about quality. But, it can also motivate. When you open your diary and start looking at quotes (especially quotes), you immediately really want to read.


Maybe a Book Bet?
Several people can participate. Members of the betting group can come from friends, family, and also your colleagues. And of course you can set your own rules for participation, but we'll give you a simple example:

Everyone in the group should read and review a book over the course of a month with weekly updates. Anyone who does not finish a review buys the book for all other participants for the next month.


Speed Reading

Another effective way to increase the amount you read is speed reading. The logic here is simple - the faster you read, the more books you can enjoy.

*There are many online courses on speed reading, and you can also study on your own using instructional books. But, it is worth noting that this is a serious learning process that will require some effort on your part.



Reading every day is quite attainable, the main thing is to try to make it a habit.
Sometimes, instead of heading for Facebook, try opening a book and soon you won’t even remember why you needed to wander around social media.
And also - don't forget about audiobooks. They are a cool way to take the load off your eyes sometimes and just immerse yourself in the story. Some books are really strong in voice acting.
