This is very interesting, I never knew this. I thought she had graduated from Princeton with a degree in EECS. If she was a lawyer, it is interesting to understand why Kleiner hired her in the first place. She was not hired as a lawyer, but as an entrepreneur.
The one other thing that boggles my mind is why the following obvious consideration has not been widely debated. To put it charitably, no-one would mistake Ellen Pao for a movie star or underwear model. She is a decidedly un-attractive woman whose brittle edge is obvious even in video snippets. How likely it is that men who have such a lot to lose would risk everything to have an affair with her? We are not talking about junior programmers, but guys with serious money and hardnosed business skills. The whole thing is completely bogus, and I am glad that the jury saw through her.
