From Accountant to Law : The Life and Career of Jack Levin, Senior Partner at Kirkland & Ellis

What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Jack Levin's admirable career has allowed him to take on legal roles as diverse as law professor at a few top law schools, author of some of the most important corporate law literature in the field and partner at one of the most revered law firms in the country. He sits down and talks about all of them with us, and gives insight into the evolution of the corporate law field over his career.

Jack Levin graduated summa cum laude from the Northwestern University School of Business in 1958. That same year, he took the CPA exam, scoring high enough to win Illinois' prestigious Gold Medal award. With a start like that, the logical prediction would be that Mr. Levin would spend his professional life spent as an accountant. But forty-six years later, Jack Levin finds himself thinly spread between writing, teaching, practicing law and trying to take more time off.

From Northwestern and the CPA exam Levin turned his eye toward a legal education. In 1961, he finished first in his class of 500 at Harvard Law School. After graduation, Mr. Levin served as law clerk to Chief Judge J. Edward Lumbard of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and later as Assistant to the Solicitor General of the United States for tax matters under Archibald Cox and Thurgood Marshall, where he argued numerous cases to the U.S. Supreme Court and the Federal Courts of Appeals.
