This guy, man.

I signed up for his damn e-mail list early in my law school career. Every week he blows out some BS like this.

"5 Reasons You Will Regret Going to Law School for the Rest of Your Life"

"Ten Things That Make Me Super Awesome and You, Not So Much"

Problem is, he is kind of right. He feels to me like one of those bro-dudes that tell you the way to get chicks is to drive a slick car, pump weights at the gym, and tan a lot. He likes to talk about how he was the hardest working dude and then he decided it sucked and decided to be a recruiter. He has one on how all lawyers are basically killing themselves by working too much. Then, another article, you can't make it unless you work 24/7. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

And that photo? is that really him or is it a stock photo from a JC Penney catalog?

is it a pre-req for a recruiter position to write articles that resemble chain e-mails from 2000?

Students from Columbia often end up in “5” firms due to the school’s proximity to New York City as a place where most of the “5” law firms are.


I'm happy that the preftigious legal gods at SKADDEN would deign to give TTT 6 plebes like us a chance to prove ourselves because we happen to be in the same city as their HQ.

Pro-Tip: You can conclude this without reading the article when you see "Harrison Barnes" in the byline.

Definitely get the impression that Harrison Barnes has at some point in his life considered himself a member of the "seduction community."

I suppose you could say that Barnes has seduced me to post in a thread precipitated by one of his troll articles. The dude has got game.

"Sorry, Mr./Ms./Mrs. Secretary of State. Your grades 30 years ago are not reflective of a Gibson Dunn attorney."

How would one rebut the article? When you pass a homeless guy on the street ranting about how the government is controlling our brains with microwaves, do you hope that someone will provide an actual rebuttal?
