Yeah, I saw this one earlier today on their site. I really like the part about it paying 1/4th of their regular salaries...

So great, public interest is the new big law refuge.

That's what I'm afraid of.

You, me, and the rest of the non-T14 crew. I mean, seriously. It's bad enough we can't get the balla jobs, now we can't get the bad ones either?

I posted an article the other day about how biglaw saleries are going dwon from 160 to 144. This treand is not going away, people need to think outside OCI to land jobs, the firms that typically do OCI are the same types that are having to cut costs so much.
