In-house counsel: why did you hire the most recent outside counsel for your company? Prior relationship (colleague or classmate) or random networking/RFP process?

How do you use the whiteboard in your office? I always see people using their whiteboard for organizing tasks but mine is always blank because I have never figured out a good system.

In what types of scenarios will in-house counsel consider reaching out to an associate-level attorney to handle a civil suit? And why? What puts that associate on your radar?

How did current in-house attorneys find their positions? I am currently in big law with 3 years of experience. Seems that most recruiters can only help me lateral to other big law firms.

I interviewed at a pretty big tech company starting in August. Last interview was in November. Recruiter keeps saying I’m still in the mix but they haven’t made a decision yet. Is this normal?

Just got passed for a position in-house at a Fortune 300 company. 2019 grad with 2 full years of in-house experience in law school. This sucks. Should I focus on law firm positions?

4th year considering switching from big law to in-house. What is the expected pay cut? Is the decrease worth it? How hard is it to get back into to big law a few years down the line? Am I too junior?
