I was talking to the inimitable J. Kim Wright of Cutting Edge Law the other day when she pointed out a funny juxtaposition between two articles I’d seen but not thought about together:
So is this really what it comes to? More
Contrary to what Legally Blonde (the movie, not the musical, because I’m an adult) taught me, female lawyers don’t wake up to the joyful strains of Hoku every morning. They rarely have to fake their own deaths; and hallucinating a dancing, half-naked baby? Not the norm! In fact, the general consensus is that being a female lawyer is a pretty miserable, thankless existence, especially when said lawyer works in a large firm. More
I’ll withhold judgment on Sheryl Sandberg’s book until I actually read it, but the impending publication seems to have reignited an old debate: How much should we collectively worry about the dismal retention rates for women (and minorities) in large law firms? More

- “Law school doesn’t prepare you for the practice of law.”
- “Jobs are few and far between.”
- “Those who do land jobs out of law school are dissatisfied in the long term.”
Lately this quote has been making the rounds:

We’re excited to initiate a series of interviews with various LSAT prep companies, exploring their approach and getting some tips for success. (If you’d like to be featured, let me know.) Today, we’re talking with LSATMax, a course by Harvard Law grads that you can get right from the Apple App Store. More
According to a new survey from Kaplan, when asked, “Which of the following factors would you tell prospective law students should be the most important when picking where to apply?” only 17% of law school graduates said law school rankings made an impact.
