Themes and Stories in Employment Cases

 

    Everyone loves a good story. And despite the formality of the courtroom, judges and juries are no exception. As lawyers, we often forget that the stock in trade of our profession are the stories of living human beings: their conflicts, their struggles, and the triumphs and tragedies of their lives. As advocates, our work flows directly from the stories of their lives - the inevitable joys and sorrows, the injuries, the wrongs and disputes of life - and our all too human effort to make laws intended to resolve those disputes. As is the case in all other areas of law practice, this is no less true in the practice of employment law.
