I haven’t secured a summer associate role. 1) How bad will this affect my chances of getting into a big law associate role next summer, or 2) am I too late?

What is the best way to prepare for a summer associate role in BigLaw (V100 firm)?

Any books, YouTube channels, or other resources resources you would recommend?

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 have been in my current position for 5 yrs with minimal pay increases despite consistent praise from management for being one of the strongest in our department.

I recently found out that a new hire with no experience was brought in at a higher hourly rate than myself and several other female staff. Suggestions on steps to take with mgmt?

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency?

Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.
