Today’s New York Times has a story, For Top Law Students, A Sidebar With the Arts. An excerpt:
It was the kickoff cocktail party for the Summer Art Circle, one of a handful of new initiatives meant to match law firms and arts institutions, which have long been seeking new blood (preferably with excess disposable income) to replenish their audiences and donor rolls. The law firms are paying $375 a head to participate.
The firms are doing it for the same reasons that have led them for years to lavish their summer associates with cocktails, beach parties and fancy boat rides: networking and recruiting. Now art has become the latest addition to this summer bonanza for the nation’s top law students, one more piece of evidence — if any was needed — that a life in the law is a good life after all.
I think the key point is that a summer in the law is a good life after all. Enjoy it while it lasts, folks.
