Help! My Supervising Attorney Wants Me to Write My Own Letter of Recommendation!

Well, reasonable minds can differ. It appears to be a somewhat common practice.

I agree I think it is perfectly reasonable to ask someone to write their own recommendation. In the real world you have to explain what you do to bosses, supervisors, clients, etc, you don't tell your boss to tell the client why your doing a good job you should be able to explain it.

I having the student sum up what it is they do that is so valuable is practice for the real world. I am sure the supervisor will edit, and maybe make some additions, but the student is asking for something and should have some framework of what they have to offer.
