Thats an awesome reward. Do really well in lawschool so you can bill 2800 hours a year and have no life whatsoever. Awesome.

It better than document review.  At least you are well compensated for your work.

please I work at what I assume is one of those firms and that is not what I have to bill, people just like to think it is that high so they dont feel so bad about themselves for not getting the jobs.
