So I plan to prepare treats this Halloween for the kids in my neighborhood. What kind of treats do I get to minimize dental damage? Putting in fruits, nuts, or apple chips would feel like I tricked them and ruined the treat, no? Do I just put in regular candy but add in a small travel size Crest toothpaste (like they do at the dentist) and pray that their parents taught them to brush regularly? My conscience is torn. Please help.

I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!

Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon.
