An au pair-a-legal is an underpaid, underappreciated non-JD'd firm worker who has to coddle some punk
summer associate who don't know his Westlaw from his Lexis. The au pair-a-legal must do research, filing, and coffeeing while the punk
noshes on delicious lunches day-in and day-out. Often a young female native to a foreign country or otherwise otherly occupied land mass.
Most of the staff in Washington, D.C. law firms between May 15 and August 20 every year are au pair-a-legals.
