PDQ is a digital journal within the NALP Bulletin+ that offers thoughtful, in-depth explorations of lawyer and law student professional development and talent management topics by PD people for PD people. Published as a standalone journal from August 1999 through February 2021, PD Quarterly was rebranded PDQ in May 2021 and combined with the legacy NALP Bulletin brand to create Bulletin+. In every issue, leading experts in lawyer professional development, career development, and talent management present advanced-level content in core areas of lawyer and law student PD — sharing research, best practices, lessons learned, and new developments in the field.
Published monthly within Bulletin+, PDQ is provided to NALP members as part of their annual membership fees. Non-member subscriptions are also available.
The “recipe” for leveling the playing field for first-generation professionals includes tools to help them understand expectations, reduce anxiety, and build a supportive network.
The PDQ Advisory Group is made up of experts in the law student and lawyer professional development fields. The group provides insight and guidance on PDQ's editorial direction.
