Up until last weekend, I was in the recruitment process for a summer associate role at EY-Parthenon Strategy, London UK. They sent me an email saying the program was cancelled due to covid, but I've heard nothing about this from any other source, so I'm a little suspicious...

Hello! I just passed the patent bar a couple of months ago so I'm applying to my first patent agent roles. However, I only have a masters in law, not a JD, so I have no summer associate experience, and every position wants experience first. How did some of you other patent agents get your first positions if you've never worked in a law firm before? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

I’m a third-year associate with an Am Law 200, doing mostly transactional corporate/M&A work. I took the job right out of law school after working at the firm as a summer associate, but my goal has always been to move to a position with more litigation work. I've learned that there aren’t any litigation opportunities within my firm, so I'm looking for positions elsewhere. Any advice on next steps to make this transition and what the market might be like for a junior associate with my experience?

Night student (fulltime lit. paralegal) looking for 2021 summer associate position. OCI postponed..should I email alumni at big firms to chat/network? Is that welcomed? Decent grades & on law review.

Laid off from AMLaw200 firm due to coronavirus. Had great grades first year of law school. Top of class. Able to secure summer associate position at this firm, led to first year associate position. But I did poorly after the first year of law school and graduated below 3.0 gpa. Do I have a shot at another big law firm? Seems that so many place an emphasis on grades rather than relevant experience. *sigh*

I recently renewed my passport, and I was just conditionally approved for Global Entry, but my passport still hasn’t arrived.

I can get an interview as soon as next week. Do they ask for a passport, or just my greencard? The initial application did NOT ask for my passport. The website says I have until tomorrow to schedule.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it.  Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth.  Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits. Love will never end.
