Moonlighting Law Professors Bring "The Wow Factor" to Law Firms

Santa Clara Law School's Eric Goldman blogs here on reports that some law firms are adding marquee law professor names as "Of Counsel," with an eye towarding creating "a 'wow factor.' "  Says a Quinn Emanuel partner about affiliating with Kathleen Sullivan:  "Honest t300pxthe_scream_1o God, having Kathleen with you at a meeting is like walking in with Mick Jagger."

I am more interested, obviously, in that affiliation down the road with some law prof for whom, honest to God, dragging him to a meeting is like meandering in with Keith Richards.  Until then, I simply note that my own affiliation would bring the Woah Factor (right).  [Alan Childress]

UPDATE:  Here is the law.com story on such consulting.

What do you expect him to say? "We pay unholy sums of money to Prof. Sullivan and to be honest, it isn't really worth it."
