Reflections on “Big Law”

Just found a blog created by a successful trial lawyer who voluntarily hung up his practice after a long run as a partner at Chicago’s prestigious Kirkland & Ellis law firm.

 Steven Harper has penned some interesting and very boldly expressed thoughts on everything from the ABA’s inability to take serious action on legal education disclosure standards to the non-equity partner bubble, from the culture at Goldman Sachs to how the push for “big” works mostly for surviving equity partners, who get much richer.

Check out his writings at his blog, “The Belly of the Beast,” which is now listed on my blogroll.
