The mid-size ID firm I'm at has no practice management software for attorneys at all. They have a firm-wide docket program but nothing for us to manage our cases beyond windows folders and outlook. Is that normal? Anyone have suggestions of something I could use for myself to keep track of case info, deadlines, etc?

Wondering if this is the norm. I attended a large out-of-state (but within driving distance) conference that the firm strongly encouraged everyone to go to (what they really meant was, “you need to have a good reason to not go for at least a day or two”). I was reimbursed for food, but when I submitted a mileage reimbursement, they said mileage was not covered because attendance was “optional.” I’m going to address this with my partner, but this feels ridiculous. Thanks for letting me vent

Legal treatise author/editors -- Anyone have experience taking over as author/general editor of a large legal treatise? This opportunity came across my desk to take over as editor of an existing treatise, which could be a good opportunity... or a real chore. Mainly involves corralling contributing authors to update their chapters, reviewing that work, and coming up with new chapter topics. There would be royalties, but nothing too meaningful. And I'm skeptical of any real biz. dev. value...

Anyone have advice for taking the California bar? I am admitted in NY (took the bar last summer), but this exam feels so much worse. I don’t know if I feel this way because I am comparing the time I had last year to study to this year when I am working, or if the material is legitimately harder. It’s probably both. I am depending on my MBE score because I really cannot remember all of the rule statements for California essays. I would appreciate any advice anyone has 🙏🏼
