Getting an internship at a major law firm when you are in law school is not like your typical third-year-of-college internships.

After your junior year of college, when you land one, you work your butt off in the hopes the company will hire you the next year. But in law school, if a firm offers you an internship, it means they are going to hire you after you graduate.

Sure, you have to work hard, but as a lawyer I know once said, it’s basically impossible to fuck up. The firms have given you this offer because they want you, and they spend the summers wining and dining you to show that they are the place you want to work for the next 20 years. If you don’t take a job after all that, it reflects poorly on them. People wonder why.

So firms do everything they can to keep their summer associates.

With that in mind, imagine how hard you gotta fuck up to get canned from something so guaranteed.

But a Bro at one of the top firms in the nation, Latham & Watkins, was able to. The reason? Well, hookers and cocaine, of course. From Above The Law blog, about his weekend at the company’s retreat in L.A.:

We’ve been told that B.S. allegedly had problems at the academy from the get-go. According to our sources, this fellow missed several flights to Los Angeles, then upgraded his seat to first class — all on Latham’s dime. Upon arrival in L.A., B.S. allegedly upgraded his room to a penthouse suite using his own money. Unfortunately for him, his suite was next to a Latham partner’s suite. What could have possibly gone wrong?

It seems that B.S. was allegedly caught with cocaine and high-end prostitutes in his suite during Latham’s summer academy. One of our sources claims that B.S. “had the balls to bring one of the prostitutes to the firm dinner dressed in spandex.” After this très déclassé act, Latham allegedly had enough of B.S.’s B.S.

Impressive. Really impressive when you think about it. Wasn’t Richard Gere a lawyer in Pretty Woman? Maybe the dude just thought that’s how it’s done.
