I keep seeing all these posts advising people to take a leave of absence instead of quitting. Do LOAs even exist outside of big law / big consulting firms? I work for a mid-size law firm & have never heard of someone taking leave - other than maternity leave. We have a 1-person HR team and each of our legal departments has 1-2 associates. I just can’t imagine the firm being open to an LOA. Has anyone at a non-major firm done a LOA?
