Elena Kagan worked for Goldman Sacs

Certainly a dean’s life affords little time for side pursuits like pro bonowork. But it is hard to imagine that Kagan was more pressed for time than the average New York or D.C. lawyer. She managed to find time to do some paid work as a member of Goldman Sachs’ Research Advisory Council. There’s nothing wrong with taking such a job, but it does mean she had enough free time on hand that she could have taken a pro bono case or two and turned down the $10,000 stipend from Goldman.

  1. Imagine that, a White House appointee with Goldman ties.
