Len Simon '73 will talk about the opportunities presented for litigators who represent plaintiffs, rather than corporate defendants, in litigation. Mr. Simon practices law in San Diego, and teaches at DLS from time to time. He has represented plaintiffs in large-scale litigation in the fields of securities fraud, antitrust, consumer fraud, and a variety of other areas. He has also represented large corporations, the Commissioner of Baseball, a Rabbi charged with misconduct and Henry Kissinger. He has sued Richard Nixon, Microsoft, the NCAA and Michael Milken. He will talk about the unique opportunities presented in this segment of the legal job market, including exciting cases, expanded personal responsibility, satisfaction in representing the "good guys", and (sometimes) opportunities to recover large attorneys fees.
