What kind of notice do we need to give to quit? I am an associate in a smallish firm, 10 admin or paralegals, 4 attorneys and the owner attorney, who doesn’t actually practice but considers himself a rainmaker.

Anybody read this article? It’s about professor Amy Chua having get togethers with some of her students at YLS. The article focuses on Covid-related gatherings but explains that she had to promise to no longer have events at her home where she invited students and apparently people … gasp … drank alcohol. Since when are law students treated as children? From the sound of it you’d think she was having high school students come hang out. I mean, I was 26 when I went to law school. WTF? https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/07/us/amy-chua-yale-law.html?referringSource=articleShare

Graduated with below average grades & this for sure closes a lot of doors - what can I do? Networking is one of course; and I can emphasise the various deals I’ve worked on. Doing a masters is one as well but the barriers of entry to the good schools is high (good grades are needed in the first place) - they also seem to require references from law professors which is next to impossible for me.
