Law Firm Pronunciation Guide

The Green Bag article noted in a previous post regarding the Supreme Court pronouncing dictionary has a footnote all law firm job applicants might find helpful: Georgetown Law's Law Firm Pronunciation Guide.

Don't forget another key point when applying for jobs: make sure you pronounce the hiring attorney's name correctly. If you're not sure, ask a friend, career services, or someone you may know at the firm. Folks might not notice when you pronounce their names correctly, but they'll certainly notice if you pronounce their names incorrectly.
