Dean, alumni to discuss work/life balance
By Amy Wong

USC Law graduates, listen up.  On Tuesday, March 20, Dean Edward J. McCaffery will host a panel in which he’ll discuss “Balancing Work and Life: Is it possible?” at the Town and Gown from noon to 1:30 p.m.  Many USC law graduates now working in the legal workforce are expected to attend, including Amy Forbes, partner at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher; Harvey Silberman, commissioner at the Superior Court; and Priya Sridharan, career services director at USC Law.

 In a profession built on billable hours and extreme competition, your personal life is often swallowed whole by your professional life.  Some, like the notorious blogger behind, Melissa Lafsky, found that law firm culture was not what it was chocked up to be.  Even when raking in a six-figure income at major law firms, many get burnt out by the constant need for hours and the tedious socializing. Here’s a really great blog entry, “A Slice of Information About Corporate Law Firms and Legal Academia,” that one of our readers so kindly brought to my attention a while back.  Blogger Brian Tamanaha underscored the exploitation that young associates are often subjected to by their partners, even hinting at how it resembles Marxist’s system of labor. McCaffery said, “As a lawyer, educator, husband and father, I am personally very concerned about the challenges our graduates and others face in the effort to balance demanding, fulfilling careers with equally demanding and fulfilling family and home lives.”   McCaffery continued, “Our goal is to raise awareness of the problems our graduates and students face in balancing work and life and the ways in which these struggles are compounded by, and impact, the legal profession, and to develop meaningful strategies for helping people cope with these challenges and for changing the system.”   This problem is well-documented, but progress to ameliorate the situation is slow.  Perhaps, more public pressure will cause a widespread change.  Who knows?  USC hopes to develop a major symposium on this issue in Spring 2008.  To attend the event, please RSVP here.

At night, we all still do not trust turns guarding Pandan is not brought the matter to the pandan the injury, and has started a fever paste, then.
