Greedy Links: Asked and Answered Edition
You might see some old stories and recurring themes popping up in this week's links. What can we say? The great themes never change, and some discussions just have to keep on going and going...
Work Life: Everyone Is Still Unhappy
- Semantic Drift needs you to understand just how much effort is required for a 2L to land a summer gig this year.
- Above the Law expounds on Curtis Mallet's odd attempt at humor in explaining its business-casual dress code.
- The National Law Journal reports that would-be public interest lawyers are annoyed that so many deferred BigLaw associates, armed with firm-subsidized salaries, are taking their jobs. Who saw that coming?
- Generational debates never get old, and they never change: the young people today are always ruining it. Defending People has the latest entry in a Boomer/Gen Y dispute that we originally linked to two weeks ago.
Law School: Everyone Still Cheats
- Want to go to a public law school in Illinois? Get yourself a connection, as at least one would-be UI student did, according to TaxProf Blog.
- An ABA Journal story explains that the ABA may be changing how it evaluates law schools.
Lawyers on TV: Still Entertaining
- You know we've been hoping for a good new lawyer drama on TV. The Joyful Molly says that the Brits are making one. OK, so it's an eighteenth-century historical miniseries, with British accents. It's something.
- The California Bar Journal follows up with the Jihs
, the lawyer siblings who won The Amazing Race this season.
Coffee: Still Mandatory
- Recently we reminded you to consider your coffee fix. This week Legal Pad (via ABA Journal) notes that some firms are happy to keep their lawyers fueled with the good stuff, in the hope that they won't spend too much time going outside for a cup.
- If it hasn't already, your firm may also want to look at its in-house coffee options; Starbucks baristas are certain to be grouchy this week after being told to share their tips with management. (Central Valley Business Times via Overlawyered)
