[The Am Law Daily] * Choose the right firm for you… with the help of these Legos. [The Careerist / The American Lawyer] * A bipartisan bill hopes to replace loan default rates with a repayment metric. [Insider Higher Ed] * The most predictable prison escape ever. [Lowering the Bar] * John McAfee’s new security update includes a handgun — which he was arrested for carrying while high on Xanax after a “shootout” with police.
