The Billable Hour Must Die

SIDEBAR: New Routes into the Corporate Door

Three summers ago, my wife and I were driving my two older kids to the airport. The academic year was about to resume. The younger child, my son, was returning to college; the older, my daughter, to law school.

“Say,” I heard my son ask his sister in the backseat, “what do you think you’ll do when you get done with law school?” My daughter expressed some uncertainty but ended up answering, “I think I’ll become a litigator.”

I nearly hit the brakes.

“Oh,” I heard myself moan, “don’t be a litigator.”
