ICYMI: Post on Lawyers, Meaningful Work, and Amazon-Style Working Conditions

If you have a moment, please check out my recent post on the Huffington Post entitled “Lawyers Have Worked in Amazon-Style Conditions for Decades.”  In it, I discuss the recent controversy concerning the working conditions at Amazon.com, and explore the extent to which those conditions are similar to those under which many lawyers have labored all too frequently in recent memory.  It also explores whether such conditions are conducive to creative, meaningful, and rewarding work.  If one does think of the practive of law as creative, meaningful and rewarding (which I do), it might lead one to question the wisdom of such working conditions for lawyers.
