    Fired Up and Ready To… Teach! Barack Obama as Law Professor

    Since we’ll be speaking at the University of Chicago very soon, we thought it would be topical to share with you the interesting responses we received to our earlier request for stories about presidential candidate Barack Obama as a U. Chicago law prof. The general consensus: he’s awesome, as beloved in the classroom as he […]

    Nationwide Pay Raise: More on Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell

    Here’s some quick follow-up to yesterday’s post about Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell (which has a nice new logo — kudos to their graphic designer). An unhappy tipster tells us: Jerry Clement’s compensation memo is attached. Also attached is an email from Jerry announcing the departure of eight partners from LLBL’s Chicago office. These eight […]

    Featured Job Survey: What About The Children?

    So far, we’ve posted three sets of results from last week’s ATL / Lateral Link survey on leave and part-time arrangements:  • your thoughts on whether you would rather work fewer hours for less pay,  • a running table of firms’ paid maternity leave policies (mirrored here and updated today to add King & Spalding), […]

    Judge of the Day: LaLeshia Walker Alford

    Gotta love an elected judiciary. From the New Orleans Times-Picayune: A Shreveport judge’s excessive use of prescription drugs led her to disgrace the judiciary by missing work, falling asleep on the bench, and at times talking gibberish to convicts, the Louisiana Supreme Court has ruled in a 7-0 decision that permanently removed her from office.

    Lawyer of the Day: Kirk Watson

    We sometimes find the Obama campaign to be maddeningly perfect. So Texas attorney Kirk Watson wins our Lawyer of the Day prize, for managing to humanize — through his screw-up, on national television — this picture-perfect, messianic movement. A good summary, from a tipster: Last night, at around 11 p.m., Chris Matthews really humiliated Texas […]

    Following in Obama’s Footsteps? Professor Lessig Considers Running for Congress

    The stereotypical law professor might be viewed as too disengaged from the “real world” to be a good politician. But as Barack Obama shows, it’s quite possible to move from legal academia into political life. Now another prominent young law prof — who, by the way, is an outspoken Obama supporter — is contemplating Congress. […]

    It’s not just Pepper Hamilton. Email screw-ups are committed by even the most renowned lawyers — like longtime Skadden Arps partner Sheila Birnbaum, a living legend of the product liability defense bar. As we previously wrote, “Birnbaum, who heads Skadden’s Complex Mass Tort and Insurance Group, has a nickname reflecting her expertise: ‘The Queen of […]
