WHEELING, W.Va. — The nation’s biggest law firms are creating a second tier of workers, stripping pay and prestige from one of the most coveted jobs in the business world.

Besides making less, these associates work fewer hours and travel less than those on the grueling partner track, making these jobs more family-friendly. And this new system probably prevents jobs from going offshore.

But as has been the case in other industries, a two-tier system threatens to breed resentments among workers in both tiers, given disparities in pay and workload expectations. And as these programs expand to more and more firms, they will eliminate many of the lucrative partner-track positions for which law students suffer so much debt.

 

I  have  a  better idea   remove  lawyers and judges entirely,  perhaps we should  re install the old age tradition of  trial by combat   with a new age  spin  or  just the old world   you swing  I swing and we shall see  who  vanguishes who  :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trial_by_combat

Trial by combat (also wager of battle, trial by battle or judicial duel) was a method of Germanic law to settle accusations in the absence of witnesses or a confession, in which two parties in dispute fought in single combat; the winner of the fight was proclaimed to be right. In essence, it is a judicially sanctioned duel. It remained in use throughout the European Middle Ages, gradually disappearing in the course of the 16th century.

No  sunday night football    ~~  no problemo  ~~~~  lets have  trial by combat  ~~~~  lets  fire all the judges and  political  appointees   and  let the games begin.

After all there are no good  or bad people,  there are only people   and two sides of the coin.

 Damn I heard  Mark Haines,  recording  and I thought for a second he came back to open the markets.

Al how do you feel about lawyers not making partner or  coin ???

and trial by combat ?

War crimes fugitive Mladic arrested in Serbia

Mladic has been on the run since 1995 when he was indicted by the U.N. war crimes tribunal for genocide in the slaughter of some 8,000 Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica and other crimes committed by his troops during Bosnia's 1992-95 war

I've heard stories  that have  sickened me  of what has happened in a land not too far from  my  ancestorial  homeland.  Luckily  there is  still distance  that separates my ancestorial  lands and  places like the former YUGOSLAVIA...

Mladic personally led his troops in the Serb onslaught against the U.N.-protected enclave of Srebrenica in an enclave supposedly protected by U.N. peacekeepers. Thousands of Muslim men and boys were killed there and the town's name has become nearly synonymous with the horrible bloodshed of the Balkan conflict.

Tens of thousands of NATO troops were deployed to Bosnia in 1995 to safeguard a U.S.-sponsored peace agreement between that nations' warring factions. They have since been withdrawn abd replaced by a much smaller European Union force.

The United Nations had declared Serb-besieged Srebrenica, some 90 kilometers (60 miles) northeast of Sarajevo, a protected area for civilians. But the few hundred Dutch Blue Helmets on the ground were left short of credible weaponry or a clear mandate to protect the town.

Srebrenica fell to the Serbs after senior U.N. commanders dithered on Dutch requests for air strikes and its overwhelmingly Bosnian Muslim residents swarmed the U.N. military base, seeking refuge. But the peacekeepers allowed the Serbs to take away the townspeople when Mladic said they would not be harmed.

The shootings began shortly after, and the bodies of the victims were bulldozed into mass graves.

Since then, the bodies of thousands of the victims have been recovered, identified through DNA tests and laid to rest.
