Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who becomes a visiting professor at Texas Tech University on Aug. 1, says he is "open" to the idea of "going back to a big-firm job" at some point but is concerned he would lose flexibility if he took a partner-level job. Gonzales was a transactional lawyer at Vinson & Elkins when then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush hired him to be GC for the governor's office. Gonzales says a special prosecutor's investigation into the 2006 dismissals of U.S. Attorneys has hampered his job search.
