Great answers so far. If anyone is wondering, I have absolutely no idea what I would do.

I thought you were working at the height of prestige. At least your previous posts stated so...

(3) Husch Blackwell in Kansas City


Why Husch and not BC, Shook, etc?


This is either someone with a connection to husch or someone who doesn't understand the kc market.

Do we have to be able to live on the salary of this legal job, or in our fantasy world can we be independently wealthy so we can do what we want?

If independently wealthy I would work for the Met Museum of Art or another museum.
Or possibly the Sothern Poverty Law Center

If I needed to live in the salary : Yale law prof.

1.) Academia - class twice a week, summers off, 55 days to grade a multiple choice exam, ridiculous salary? Sounds awesome to me!

2.) Judge - mmm dat 9-5 and dat power. Specifically, district court judge.

Judge would be pretty epic. Any kind of judge, really.

What's hilarious is the guy who painted Facebook's mural being worth twice as much as their GC. Pwned.
