* Close, but no cigar? The ABA has updated the way that it will collect graduate employment and salary data from law schools, but the new method could still use a few tweaks. [National Law Journal]

* Kilpatrick Townsend is expanding into Saudi Arabia. I don’t really have anything witty to say about this, but now the “Arabian Nights” song from Aladdin is stuck in my head. [Atlanta Business Chronicle]

* British barristers behaving badly: Kevin Steele, a former Mishcon de Reya partner, was convicted of fraud and forgery charges in connection with a $28M loan scam. They don’t serve tea and crumpets in jail. [Legal Week]

* If I were the muse for this pro-life billboard, I’d be more embarrassed about dating the guy pictured than the abortion in question. He looks like he plays a lot of D & D. [Healthland / TIME]

* I’m usually a fan of toilet humor, but this lawsuit gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “dropping the kids off at the pool.” [Birmingham News]

* Now that real weed is legal in Connecticut, fake weed might be criminalized. The stoner-like logic of lawmakers knows no bounds. [NBC Connecticut]
