I’m having sex with a paralegal. Bad idea?
No, it’s genius. Nothing a law firm likes more than sexual harassment. In fact, it’s probably the best way to make partner – to wind up on the wrong end of an embarrassing and costly lawsuit. It also shows terrific judgment and discretion, which, as you might imagine, are relevant to the practice of law. OF COURSE IT’S A BAD IDEA. If you want to get laid, find a paralegal at another firm. Or a barista at Starbucks. Or a hooker. But don’t nail a paralegal in your own firm. If you want to make partner anyway.
