I know that most university students have brains like rice pudding, unencumbered as they are by any experiences with actual reality in their scholastic years — K-12 and whatever college years they’ve completed to date.
One would think that law students would be a little brighter than, say, the average Female Studies major, but that really doesn’t seem to be the case, what with law students coming out against Israel / Jews and supporting — publicly! — the amoral assholes known collectively as “Hamas”.
Let’s also keep in mind that in American law firms there is a very real chance that Jews are going to be, shall we say, very well represented as a proportion of the staffs thereof — despite the WASPy-sounding names of the firms. In other words, if a freshly-minted lawyer from, oh, Cornell or Yale is going to begin his career at, say, Debevoise & Plimpton, Kirkland & Ellis or Winston, Strawn — to name but some notables — there is a real chance that his manager is going to be someone named Hyman Goldstein, Avi Cohen or Rachel Nathan.
How is said manager going to act towards a junior associate who once went public and signed a letter / marched in a protest which supported the genocidal “From The River To The Sea” slogan? With compassion, kindness and forgiveness?
I’ll take “none of the above” for $400, Alex.
The pink-cheeked junior is going to be given megatons of overtime shitwork, the results of which will be mercilessly picked apart not only by the manager but also by partners (e.g. David Rosenblum or Myra Feldstein), resulting in terrible performance reviews and eventual termination. And their next job is going to be even worse because — incredibly — senior lawyers at different law firms know each other and often talk amongst themselves about their employees at their weekly klabejas games or golf outings.
One may say that this is unjust or whatever, but it’s what’s known as “reality” — the thing from which these precious snowflakes have been sheltered by parents and teachers for over a dozen years of their lives to date — and it’s going to bite them in the ass, painfully and repeatedly.
So then, I think these idiot students can be grateful for this development (no link because NYT fucking paywall):
Law Firms Warn Universities About Antisemitism on Campus
Two dozen major Wall Street firms sent a letter to top law schools to crack down on discrimination and harassment amid an escalation in incidents targeting Jewish students.
With universities across the United States grappling with a rise in antisemitism since the start of the Israel-Hamas war, elite law firms are putting schools on notice. In a letter to some of the nation’s top law schools obtained by DealBook, about two dozen major Wall Street firms warned that what happens on campus could have corporate consequences.
…nipping the careers of this little bunch of starry-eyed young idiots in the bud, so to speak.
The Gods Of The Copybook Headings say: “Actions have consequences, and often those consequences are unpleasant.”
As these pro-Hamas-terrorist ingenues are finding out.
