Over at Sentencing Law and Policy, Douglas A. Berman, in a July 10 post titled "Lots of clemency food-for-thought," took up the commutation of Scooter Libby's sentence and dissected the situation with his characteristic precision. The downloads on "rethinking pardons" and "presidential clemency stats" are cool for the curious.

You won't want to miss the definition of customer service on Begging to Differ. It begins, "Providing the minimal amount of interaction or aid required to keep a working relationship with a customer...." Read on for the rest of the definition. I think you'll enjoy it.

There's also been yet another take on associate salaries, this time from the Canadian angle. Check out the post on the Law Career Blog titled "The Associate Crisis." The author describes "a fundamental shift in the traditional law firm paradigm." At the Guiding Rights Blog, Mark Partridge gives excellent "Advice to a Young Attorney," which includes three keys to success: become a good lawyer, network, and build credentials. And even the Dirt Lawyer's Blog stated on July 10, "Want to be a lawyer? DON'T do it for the money."

Thank you.
