    Biglaw Baby Making 101

    There’s been so much talk of Biglaw women and baby making floating around the blogosphere this week that I think there must have been a “repopulate the species” action memo in US Weekly.

    Wearing Peep-Toe Shoes to Court? Women Judges Weigh In

    Earlier today, on the Senate floor, debate took place on whether to confirm Solicitor General Elena Kagan as the nation’s 112th Supreme Court justice.
