These days, it's hard to open any legal publication without immediately reading about how the economy is taking its toll on the legal community. From law firms closing their doors--or at the very least laying off partners, associates and staff--to recent law school graduates struggling to find any semblance of a legal job, the swinging ax doesn't discriminate. Even legal departments are feeling the hit.
In times like these, I admit I've wondered if organizations are truly doing all they can to keep their staffs. So it was refreshing to learn about a sacrifice one high-profile legal exec is making.
