Fairly interesting.  The future of doc review and midlevel associate work?  Could the law be left to litigators?

The law is changing in a number of systemic ways right now.  I'm not sure whether this will be a problem in ten years.  It might be for newer associates in the short-term, though...

J, if you didn't bring enough penis for everyone, you shouldn't have brought any penis at all.

*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

You could save a couple Gs, move there, and own half of Mumbai

ok, I'm all for building up foreign economies and improving the quality of life for people in nations with a lot of poverty, but this is ridiculous!  there are plenty of qualified people in the US that could do a similar job.  my mom is struggling with a solo-practice after taking several years off to care for her father and sister, and she would love a job doing research and writing (from home, which eliminates the need for office-space or overhead).  I'm just waiting for the day when people in India realize that they could really hike up the prices.  it's already happening in the CG and computer-coding sectors.
