I love this! Texas lawyer Michael Maslanka provides lessons for lawyers from Shakespeare’s “Othello.”  Maslanka’s points about listening carefully to others’ stories for potential manipulation and rationalization, of course, are instructive for nonlawyers as well and illustrate Shakespeare’s timelessness. 

Maslanka blogs on labor and employment law at “Work Matters.”
