Who Needs Coffee Bars When You Can Globe Trot?

So what if today's law firms are offering their own in-house coffee bars, as Above the Law notes in this post? Wouldn't you rather trot around the globe, observe civil wars and make history? As Rick Georges writes in this post at Future Lawyer, the CIA is touting the latter benefits to distinguish between its Office of General Counsel and ordinary private practice in this clever recruitment ad. Other perks of choosing the CIA over private practice include 10 federal holidays and 13 to 26 vacation days versus 2,600 billable requirements, negotiating treaties rather than drafting memos, all for government pay versus a six-figure salary. 

Who would have thought that the CIA had a sense of humor and a great instinct for marketing?
