The Political Leanings of Law Firms:
David Lat has an interesting post at Above the Law on the political leanings of law firms. I agree with David's sense that most firms don't care -- which is to say that they reflect the view of the professional crowd drawn to that city, but they don't make a big deal of it -- but that D.C. firms are more likely to have a reputation as identifying one way or the other. DC is unusual in that a lot of people in DC firms want to go into government at some point. There's a crowd that will to pick firms based in part on contacts they expect to make to help them get a job in the OTCMGE Administration, which results in some firms leaning towards particular parties.

  That's my impression, at least: Lawyer-readers, what do you think?
