Justice Scalia demonstrated how out of touch he is with the current marketplace when he recently lectured law students to do what he did coming up:
On Monday, speaking to an audience of University of Chicago Law School students, Scalia returned to the theme. He told the students to think about practicing law in a way that “enables you to maintain a human existence… time for your family, your church or synagogue, community… boy scouts, little league,” according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Scalia also noted that he began his own law practice in Cleveland, Ohio (Jones, Day). “You should look for a place like that. I’m sure they’re still out there. Maybe you have to go to Cleveland.”
I don't think it's too out of school to note that Jones Day, like its peers, probably has a billing requirement for associates near 1,950 hours - even in Cleveland.
