Publius gave a typically thoughtful response
to this Financial Times article about "Tribal Workers
Many of you know that I've been mulling the potential costs of working for a big law firm since it became a real possibility last summer. Now that Girlfriend is taking her firm job for sure and I'm going to the city-in-the-South-that-shall-remain-nameless for a year, I'll be staring at some pretty big career (I first typed "life") choices soon enough. I've been talking about joining an primary campaign when I finish in September 2007, so that gives me probably at least another year to postpone the firm v. legal services v. gov't choice(s). But, at some point, I'm going to have to commit.
Ha! Even as I type this I realize I've already committed. I've gone and borrowed an enormous amount of money that will have to be paid off by my work as a lawyer without ever really deciding to be a lawyer. Somehow I committed to law school without really thinking about the consequences. Perhaps I couldn't have done it any other way, since the very nature of law school frames and limits what you perceive as possible choices.
So it goes. I didn't have much to say, but I did want to link to Legal Fiction. Check it
