Any POC attorneys who feel they are held to higher standards than their non-minority peers? How have you navigated that and not let it get you down that you have to work harder to be taken seriously?
Anyone else really over seeing these JDs fussing about the online bar exam? I mean, it's delayed (extra time is extra time...the rest of us had until the end of July), plus it's online.

New attorney here - Passed the Feb bar exam and started working at a small firm in March. Boss is great, staff is great, I just feel like I know literally nothing about how to actually practice law. The paralegals know more than I do. I can barely write a complaint, and I don’t even know how to file. Any advice on gaining confidence when just starting out? P.S. My boss (the only other attorney) isn’t available to answer my dumb questions 8-5. I can only catch him after hours.
