Scalia: For work-life balance, it’s hot in Cleveland … and LA

Justice Antonin Scalia doesn’t believe the life of a lawyer should be all work and no play.

“Try to find a practice that enables you to maintain a human existence, time for your family, your church or synagogue, community…Boy Scouts, Little League,” Scalia told law students at the University of Chicago on Monday, according to the Chicago Sun Times (via ABA Journal).

He said his own experience working in the Cleveland office of Jones Day provided the kind of work-life balance new lawyers should try to find.  “You should look for a place like that,” he said. “I’m sure they’re still out there. Maybe you have to go to Cleveland.”

Or maybe do some California dreamin’. “My son Gene went to Gibson Dunn,” he said. “Any big firm has the basic ethos of its head office and if the head office is in La La land, it’s gonna be a little laid back.”
