Finding it hard to continue as an attorney after 10 years as a very happy litigator doing insurance defense work including trials. Courts have been closed for over a year (I practice in NYC) and it does not look like I’ll ever have the lifestyle I once had and loved, going to court and depositions every day. Billable hours seem impossible without court and life has just gotten so gravely boring. Anyone else feeling lost? I’ve spent the entire last year trying to figure out where to go from here

I am a first year associate in Biglaw. I have been put on an improvement plan to increase my billable hours. My supervisors have commented that have not been getting work because I need to improve my efficiency. I am willing to do what it takes to improve but wonder how to improve my hours when no one seems willing to give me a second chance.

I need to spend a good 3-4 hours doing some organizational shit today. I have a bunch of new cases and cases with new deadlines, and it’s going to take a bit to figure out how I’m going to manage everything. It’ll make my life easier and less scrambled in the long run... but there’s so much billable work I should be doing. How do you convince yourself to do all the nonbillable stuff that’s necessary for case management when you’re already pressed for time?

Just got finished with two huge projects I had to turnover in a very tight timeframe. One of them barely had any revisions and the other got clobbered with redlines. Clearly the latter was the one I was working on at 2am. This is my very first assignment as a first year at big law and I wanted to make a good first impression. I feel like I squandered that opportunity.😣

Curious about non-US attorneys: are you working the crazy hour weeks most of us in the US do? Or are your weeks closer to 40 hours? I hear a lot about the working hour caps, vacation requirements, etc in Europe/Canada. Curious if that flows into legal practice... or if it gets ignored. To clarify—I’m talking about BigLaw. I’m sure there are smaller firms with reasonable hours, the same exists in the US.

Posted this in firm bowl, but belongs here as well. The big 4 shouldn’t open their physical firm offices. Case positivity in the Midwest is climbing exponentially, nearly 1000 Americans are dying per day, we are entering the “darkest 6-12 weeks of the pandemic”, traveling to see family for the holidays in-state is being advised against. Tell me again how and why we should even remotely consider going to client sites or into offices without proper enforced social distancing when we can WFH. Why?!

I applied to a job on Glassdoor. There was no range or salary history for this position found. HR emailed me with a questionnaire that included salary req.

I’ve now found a posting on LinkedIn for the position that DOES list the salary range and I am in the far low bracket. If I am offered the position, am I stuck with the range I gave? I assume my “cheapness” was desirable to them and I would lose the offer
