What types of non-entry level exit opportunities are available to senior associates at BigLaw firms (i.e., working for a firm)? I know Knowledge Managment attorneys are on the rise, but any stories of people making the switch to Director of Professional Development or other positions like that? Any idea of compensation for these types of roles? Did you approach your own firm first or lateral elsewhere?
I’m getting ready for my first telephonic Case Management Conference as a first year associate. I’ve never been “in front” of a judge before. I received some training and I look forward to the experience, but I’m a little nervous about having to speak in front of the judge. I know the case, but I’m afraid I’ll freeze and make a fool of myself. Any advice re: court calls, courtroom etiquette, or stories about your first times in front of judges?
How to explain your hours to people? I've noticed friends can get upset/judgy when I can only do late nights/my family feels offended when I have to do some work during visits. "It's just a job" 🤦
Did you start to enjoy practicing law after you had a few years of experience under your belt? I’m a second year in IP litigation and I hate how stressful everyday feels.

Does your firm have regular mandatory social events outside of work hours? Mine just started doing this and I hate it. I’m missing time with my family and just feels like more work. Is it weird to just want to go to work and do my job and go home? I already work all the time, now I need to hang out with my coworkers during my precious free time?
I’m studying for the SHRM-CP with the Mometrix (study guides, online course, and flash cards), however I’m super overwhelmed with all of the information. What are some best practices to ensure I grasp all of the concept ? Any advice would be much appreciated!!!
Curious, has anyone left their toxic firm in a blaze of glory and informed HR the real reasons they were leaving? I am one foot out the door with my firm and I already know I will be labeled as problematic because everyone that has left has been labeled the same way. Firm can’t retain attorneys and has very high turnover rate. In the end I will likely bite my tongue and only discuss salary reasons because my legal market is small. Hoping to live vicariously through one of you brave souls.
Throwing myself out there… is anyone on here looking to fill a SaaS BDR/SDR role? I don’t have direct experience in SaaS but I have worked in the tech space as a Business Analyst.
