March 2013 Bar Bulletin


It is the month for March MadnessĀ®, which means an inordinate amount of otherwise billable time will be spent on office pools and talking smack about basketball. Since every lawyer graduated from college somewhere (including multiple colleges for overachiever types), March MadnessĀ® often provides a lively topic for office conversation. For the vertically challenged, there is always soccer, as the Sounders hit the field for another season. If baseball and/or sunshine are more your thing, hope springs eternal at the Mariners' spring training camp.
