Last week may have officially been “Legalweek” but it was bad lawyer week at Above the Law, where Alina Habba dominated traffic with her ongoing futility. Her rapid retreat from the very phony “it’s actually bias that so many prominent lawyers all worked at Paul Weiss” motion after being informed of the very real sanctions that could result. Robbie Kaplan, one of the Paul Weiss alumni in question, also shared her story of Donald Trump pulling out the half-clever schoolyard insults. We also discuss a firm that announced it would lay off 1/3 of the first-years… but not say which ones! And we talk a little about Legalweek and how AI isn’t quite ready for primetime… even as lawyers keep getting in trouble for trying.
