Any thoughts on changing fields of law? I have been actively networking and trying to get a position with an admiralty and maritime law firm. This is a niche field of law and it has been really difficult to break into (almost no job postings and everyone knows each other)any suggestions?

Virtual Juneteenth celebration anyone? This is one year especially that I don't want Juneteenth to just go by without me actually celebrating or acknowledging it. Shamefully I have not done so as much in the past. Anyone up for a virtual celebration and/or know of any? I know Deloitte is not giving us the day off… I am thinking of taking it as PTO anyway.

Does it make sense for me to file for AOS right now? I have a Canadian passport and I am on H1b but want to quit Deloitte next year and go back to India for a couple of years due to family reasons. Will filing for AOS now mean I will be abandoning my green card petition when I leave. Also AOS will prevent me from getting a TN visa to return.
