For our next episode of The Whole Lawyer Project, we speak with Steph Cha, a Korean American novelist and attorney who wrote her first novel while a student at Yale Law School. Steph’s fourth and most recent book, Your House Will Pay, won the LA Times Book Award.
After trying her hand in BigLaw, Steph knew very early on that she was going to forge her own path. Steph opens up about how she structured her legal career so she can write for six months out of the year, what advice she has for those of us who want to pursue our creative passions, and how important it is for us to keep an open mind for our dreams and future possibilities. We hope you enjoy this refreshingly honest account of Steph’s off-the-beaten-path journey.
