From the Publisher

America’s expert on law firm mismanagement is back with a whole new array of humorous committee meetings, memos, speeches, and consultants’ reports that present lawyers acting not like sharks, but rather floundering in a sea of dilemmas. The lawyers at the fictitious firm Fairweather, Winters & Sommers consider the advantages of merging and going virtual, bicker over a firm web site, and in front of a morning talk-show audience, try to understand economics, and scramble to figure out what to do when a big corporate client gets caught being unusually unethical. A sports-mogul client argues for drafting law-school graduates as if they were athletes, and a look into the future finds lawyers trolling outer space for new business. As ever, the firm’s founder, Stanley Fairweather, gets the last, wise word. Imagination and humor drive this law firm send-up, which turns a dull topic into hilarious farce and entertains lawyers while showing them the error of their ways.

Donald Trump’s Favorite Law Firm

Paul M. Barrett • Jones Day attorneys fill key posts in the new administration • “It is a little like a sports team losing major players” When prominent lawyers take top jobs at the White House or the U.S. Department of Justice, they often bring along several attorneys from their firms. With the Trump administration, one firm—Jones Day—is taking that to an extreme. “I don’t know of a precedent,” says Theodore Olson, a solicitor general in the George W. Bush administration and a partner in the Washington office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. So far, at least 14 Jones Day attorneys have joined

Did Jeff Sessions Champion Desegregation?

Civil-rights organizations balked when Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, who was rejected for a federal judgeship in 1986 over allegations he made racist remarks, was chosen to succeed Loretta Lynch as attorney general. Sessions’s allies have sought to portray those criticisms as unfair, in part by pointing to his record of filing desegregation lawsuits as U.S. attorney in Alabama. Sessions himself claims to have been a champion of desegregation. “I filed 20 or 30 civil-rights cases to desegregate schools and political organizations and county commissions when I was a United States attorney,” Ses
