I’ve been hearing from readers that I’m sounding too angry these days. Well, what can I say? Writing about race in Big Law and Trump’s mendacity about his academic record (something we lawyers take very seriously) is taking a toll.
But I don’t want you to think that I’ve turned into a total shrew. To prove to you that I’m still fun at heart, I’ve assembled some news items that caught my eye:
Attention: Women Lawyers. Harvey Weinstein is casting! Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t inform readers about a career opportunity.
Hey, I know it sounds insulting to work for a guy who thinks women are bargains. But the reality is that Weinstein has a point: Not only are female partners paid less than male ones, but their billing rates are also lower. Men’s billing rates average $701 per hour while women’s are $636, according to Major, Lindsey & Africa’s 2018 partner compensation survey.
