Varied and probably useless career advice:
- The Volokh Conspiracy says get into bankruptcy practice like yesterday. Fees spiral ever-upward.
- PhilaLawyer explains on Bitter Lawyer why personal injury is your salvation.
- Litigators need to have fun too: The Namby Pamby reminds you to get all literary and really explore the subtext when you're drafting that reply brief.
- HLS prof Elizabeth Warren chairs the Congressional panel that oversees the bank bailout. This topic is, obviously, comedy gold, so a Daily Show appearance must ensue.
- Fear the competition: job-hunting GAs, the ABA Journal wants to be sure you are aware that 43,000 graduating law students are about to hit the market.
- More U.S. News rankings anticipation: The Shark actually watched a U.S. News promo video to hear its rankings teaser: the top five part-time law programs are . . . mostly in D.C.
- Meanwhile, Brian Leiter goes green and recycles last year's complaint about the U.S. News rankings.
- And the brand-new UC Irvine School of Law did not miss an opportunity to brag that it debuted as the most selective law school in the country. Yale and Stanford take note: offering free tuition really jacks the size of the applicant pool.
