    This is funny. I went to Northwestern law and am now at a top 10 law firm. People lateral around but trust me, no one who is in practice at Quinn. It's a revolving door. You burn out 3 years max.

    Good for QE for breaking the mold of law firm/law school OCI.
    However, let's not heap on the praise as if QE suddenly invented a new and groundbreaking manner of finding new employees. Back in the 1990's, when they were still the "Big 6," the accounting and consulting firms did what QE is doing now. I doubt it was a "new" idea for Arthur Andersen, Price Waterhouse, KPMG, etc.
