All the partners have a call on their schedules tomorrow at noon. All the associates and counsel have a call at one. What could it be?

What interests are acceptable or interesting to put on resume? Do hiring partners like interests on resumes or not so much?

PROPOSAL: Can we start naming names with respects to layoffs, furloughs, and pay cuts? Knowledge is power, and the only ones who benefit from vague exchanges of info. are the employers. Thank you!

I've been having problem with near-plagiarism by junior associates. A handful of times now, a few different juniors have turned work into me that sounds ... odd. Ctd.

Are we going to have stealth layoffs or normal layoffs? Somehow I think the embarassment of conducting a layoff in 2008 is no longer the case (...)

While working through this pandemic, has anyone else realized that biglaw maybe isn’t for them? The partners will do anything to protect their partnership share at their associates expense.

COVID—19... Curious whether any summer associates or current attorneys at BigLaw firms have any updates re: their firms’ plan to accommodate a potential postponed bar exam? Stipend, start date, etc

Who here listens to music while they work? If you do, please recommend songs/artists/composers that you find are particularly inspiring while trying to push through tedious assignments.

Do you ever feel ashamed or embarrassed to ask partners for more work as a junior - fearing they’ll think you not being busy means you suck or people don’t want to work with you? Weird feeling.

Okay to renege on a lateral offer that I already accepted (prior to Covid-19 outbreak)? Anxiety is high moving in a time like this and now would rather stay put.

I’m a first year who has been slow since my arrival at the firm. I ask for work, but don’t seem to get much. I hate the worry that this causes. What do I do?

Anyone working on helping companies screw people over and feeling guilty? I'm being asked to help research how to do layoffs, evictions, foreclosures, etc. and feel sick. How do you handle it?
