I know this isn’t a job board but what the heck...anyone’s firm hiring remote securities attorneys? Older second year associate with 5 years of pre- law school and 5 years post-law school prior relevant experience. Most recently 1.5 years of traditional cap markets/securities law experience.

Advice to young lawyers. Read a book. I saw the thread about savings and many young lawyers (20s and 30s) don’t know how to open up a brokerage account or invest in their 401k. I know they don’t teach personal finance in school (though they should!), but my advice is that you should go to your local library and read a book about the subject. You have the skills necessary but you must invest in yourself. No one will look out for you.

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

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Hi all. For those of you married or in committed relationships out there, I’d like to know: do you and your spouse take on an ‘equal load’ in your home and life generally? Or would you say that your roles are more gender specific in nature? I’ve noticed that a lot of couples around me are very gender specific in their roles/ traditional (for the lack of a better word), and was wondering if that’s true more generally? I thought things had changed more than they seem to have!

For "senior" roles at FAANG, does the title correlate well between the companies? Unlike the discrepancies we see between consulting firms? I see widely varying YOE in the job descriptions (more team dependent than company dependant) but I'm not sure how faang companies perceive each others' titles. Data science if it matters.
