Legal Definitions Of The Day

Litigation Associate:  A young lawyer who transforms blank paper into a credible draft of a legal argument, only to be excoriated for failing to read the partner’s mind perfectly.

Litigation Partner: A senior lawyer who has forgotten that turning a blank page of paper into a first draft of anything is the hardest part of the job and who genuinely believes that every edit he makes dramatically improves, rather than simply changes, the associate’s draft.
