So S & C followed through with their 2011- year end bonus memo that they would give bonuses, but it’s not going to get you a new car, let alone pay off your sizable law school debts.

But then again, well, it’s a tough market! Maybe S & C is akin to the widow in the parable who gave only a cent, but gave more than the rich Pharisees, since she “gave out of her poverty, whereas they gave out of their wealth.” It might not be a ridiculous idea, considering the bleak days so many firms are facing, hiring little and offering less.

Enjoy your bonuses, S & C. It’s better than nothing, which many JD’s are getting aplenty.
