Above the Law, the blog that launched in 2006, has served as a font of cynicism about the legal profession from its inception. But founder David Lat has this to say about the current state of Big Law life: It's gotten better. In this week's Legal Speak, we hear from Lat, who left the editor-in-chief post at the irreverent blog in May to become managing director at Lateral Link, a legal recruiting firm. Legal Speak is brought to you by Econ One, offering economic expertise, consulting and dispute resolution, and data analytics.
