Started at a new firm in a new area of law a few months ago. Thoughts on asking for a one on one with my senior associate to check in on how I’m meeting expectations thus far? Would this make me seem insecure? I’m afraid I’m not “up to par” - I teeter back and forth between ‘it’s a new type of law and firm environment, you’re learning, it’s okay’ to ‘80% of what I do comes back with substantial redlines and that means I’m failing’. 5th yr btw. TIA.

Currently a transactional junior associate at a v10 from a non brand name law school. Thinking of applying to a top 1 year MBA (maybe Kellogg or NYU) to explore non law career angles.

Has anyone done something similar and would the MBA provide any value add in terms of education, network, or not being pigeonholed as a lawyer?

Started a new job and first month I did really well. Some of my installs didn’t go in, but them be the runs. I’m at about half of what I did last month now with the remainder of the month left, so I’ll probably be close to what I did last month, but I am starting to feel like I’m being “put on the program” by management and colleagues. I already had my doubts about this place before I signed the offer letter; do I stick it out or run?

I just got an email that an old boss jumped off the building and committed suicide yesterday afternoon. He had a successful law practice and appeared (outwardly) to be fine.

Suggestions for healthy ways to cope with stress?
