Greedy Links: Not-All-Doom-and-Gloom Edition
- PhilaLawyer speaks to the prelaws, systematically destroying the dream and asking, does the legal profession have a real future?
- On a related note, End of Esquire suggests an addition to the 1L curriculum, sort of a Scared Straight for would-be lawyers: required office internships.
- In the WSJ, Elizabeth Wurtzel laments the disappearance of twelve years' worth of wealth. Plus, we think she equates the corporate culture of BigLaw to the moral bankruptcy of Wall Street. But she forgot to ask for a bailout for lawyers while she was at it.
- As if the hordes of laid-off associates weren't creating enough competition in the job market, how about a little more: here come the pro se litigants, says the NYT.
- Even in a downturn, a few lawyers reach the mountaintop. DealBook brings news of Skadden partnership for a fortunate few.
- And a few are willing to take a more than $1M pay cut to serve their country. (OK, admittedly, this is a temporary situation for Gregory Craig and Norman Eisen, who will undoubtedly return to private-firm riches in a couple short years. Still.) (Legal Times Blog)
- Also, at least some laid-off Greedy Associates are, um, making the most of the opportunity. (Laid Off Diary)
- Noteworthy Reappearance: Returning just in time to track, analyze, and no doubt fuel the growing speculation that changes are afoot at SCOTUS, is everyone's favorite blog devoted to all things federal judiciary, Underneath Their Robes.
- All Greedy Associates love law school rankings, and this is your reminder that rankings are due out in less than two weeks. Bookmark the U.S. News page now. (US News College Rankings Blog)
- While you're waiting, see if you can be content with this alternative ranking of law schools by number of graduates who are now law professors, or something like that. Rankings traditionalists fear not: the T14 remains mostly intact in this version. (U.S. News College Rankings Blog)
