New first year here (aka started three weeks ago) and my senior that I’ve been working with primarily has been so, so nice. I even messed something up (not a huge deal, but definitely still an inconvenience) and she just said no worries, we will figure it out that’s my bad for missing it when reviewing. Just wanted to express a general appreciation for everyone who is patient with juniors like me. Anything I can do (other than saying thanks) to express appreciation for all the help?

Are there any lawfirm wanting LLM student from Korea? Or do you have any idea how to find it?
I’m nice to juniors, respecting boundaries and understanding and all that. Just behaving how I wished seniors were like to me. That’s me trying to change the culture or whatever. Now I get stuck with the needs of the older generation of lawyers who don’t have the concept of boundaries and I’m always exhausted lol kinda understand now why my seniors then were like that, cos they didn’t want to experience the situation I’m in now 😅

Okay finance lawyers. I don't understand this issue. Client says books show we're highly profitable but we have no way to pay our tax liability.... Well where the hell did tbe money go ?

How easy is it in your organisation to change roles/departments? My current employer seems very political about any horizontal moves. Feel like a prisoner whenever i show interest in other sales-related departments. That's not normal, is it?
How should I evaluate my salary? I’m a 1st year associate at a mid-sized firm (50 attorneys) with a monthly billable hours target of 170. It’s interesting to me that my billable amount in 3 months is equal to my salary, and I’m wondering at what point that should change. I understand there is overhead that I have to consider when analyzing this, but I feel sure there is a typical ratio of billing amount to salary and I’m just wondering what that looks like. Any thoughts here?

Opposing counsel made me cry in the court room last week. It was in the middle of a highly contentious divorce trial and he said something directly to me, in open court, that was charged with so much hate and hostility that my instant reaction was tears. Now I am deeply embarrassed and worried that I’ve convinced the male OC and judge that the stereotype of women being too emotional to be lawyers is true. Just looking for support or shared experiences.
