    For the past week, readers, commenters, tipsters, Steven Hawking and the Dalai lama have all been asking me what is going on with Skadden’s NALP form. If you look at the NALP directory of legal employers, you’ll notice that Skadden’s 2009 starting salary is listed as “TBD” — to be determined. Well we finally have […]

    Michael Jackson, RIP

    Legendary entertainer Michael Jackson, aka the King of Pop, wasn’t a lawyer. But he certainly generated lots of work for them, thanks to his child molestation charges and financial woes. Not every pop culture icon has their own ATL category tag. (Sure, MJ didn’t always pay his legal bills on time. But it’s the thought […]

    Non-Sequiturs: 06.25.09

    * Please God, whatever happens, don’t ever let me get fired via Twitter. [Legal Blog Watch] * Be forewarned, if we simplify the law, it will be easier for “lay” people to understand the law, and pretty soon people won’t need as many lawyers.

    SCOTUS Is Clothes-Minded When It Comes To Student Strip Search

    SCOTUS ruled today that strip searching middle school students is not cool.

    The Ninth Circuit Curse Strikes Again

    Remember the Ninth Circuit Curse? We wrote about it back in 2007, noting that “anyone who tries to mess with the Mighty Ninth eventually finds himself (or herself) in deep doo-doo.” Several politicians who have advocated splitting the Ninth Circuit — a sprawling court that can be challenging to administer, to be sure — have […]

    Lawsuit of the Day: Perez Hilton

    Luckily, none of my critics have the guts to punch me in the face. But I suppose if one of my faceless, nameless tormentors did clock me upside the head — and lived to tell about it — my next move would be to file a really bitchy lawsuit. And then blog about it. Fun […]

    Blind Item Follow-Up: In Defense of Fake Work

    On Monday, we offered you a blind item about a major law firm giving “fake work” to its summer associates. Some commenters thought we were criticizing the practice, but if you go back and read our original post, you won’t find any criticism.
