OK, there is some doom and gloom this week. A lot, even. It's currently unavoidable. Everywhere you look, someone else is writing a eulogy to the profession. And there were some good ones this week. The common thread: if you're thinking about law school, what more, exactly, do we have to say to convince you to run screaming in the other direction? As for current attorneys, well, apparently you're stuck here, and there's nothing more we can do for you. Make the best of it.
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.)
