There's a reason he's not called the Sanguine Reaper

Grimreape4 And it's because he's a very grim dude.  Which matches perfectly the mood of many lawyers and law students these days.  As we helped break the news yesterday, another tidal wave has hit of big firm lay-offs leaving an additional 1,500 lawyers and staffers out of work in the past five days alone.  That doesn't include the 1,500 jobs lost in January nor the 2,000 lost in February.  One prominent legal consultant has said there are more big numbers coming.

More tomorrow on the growing dialogue on whether there's fundamental change afoot in the legal marketplace such that we may never go back to the way things were.

Hat tip ABA Journal Blog.

I am the scholarship dude.
