Partners, how do you take the guess work out of YoY sales + revenue growth to the firm? How do you drive a book of business consistently? What keeps you sharp? How do you elevate yourself to C-Suite?
Things would have likely been the same here in the US had the traitor not been voted out

For moms who have delivered before, I am terrified of the delivery. That day haunts me. I’m a first time pregnant mom, and my own mother lost her first child in child birth, so I’ve inherited a lot of trauma about child birth. How bad is it, really? How scary? Any words of encouragement and honestly telling me what to expect (don’t sugar coat) I would appreciate. I am so scared.
Would anyone be interested in a site that provides functional area guides? Was thinking about putting this together for customers, prospective workday consultants, and independents. About to start beta testing, but thoughts on what areas people would be interested in seeing
Visiting friends, yay or nay?
I found the D.C. Mayors Vaccine Website unhelpful, so was able to easily book an appointment directly through Walgreens. I haven’t been notified that I’m eligible by my D.C. registration yet, despite the fact that I should be. Will I need a code or anything for my appointment, or can I just go? I don’t really get the point of registering on the D.C. website, feels like an extra hoop to jump through.
What are your go-to sites or ways to stay up-to-date on social media trends & capabilities? Thanks in advance!

I am a first-year in big law who started earlier this year. I am on pace to bill around 140 this month and I feel like I am not doing enough work. I’ve consistently reached out to partners but am not getting staffed on assignments. Today I did barely any work. I keep hearing about how slammed firms have been recently and am nervous that I’m not doing what I’m supposed to be doing. Is this a common enough experience when you first start out? What could I be doing differently to be more visible?
Transactional / non-litigation folks - what do you have your secretaries do? I have been doing everything on my own since I started a few months ago and now that I have an assigned secretary, I have no idea what to delegate.
EDNY: Are there any workarounds to the requirement that the attorney submitting your sponsoring affidavit must have known you for one year? I recently moved to NY for family reasons and I don’t really have a network up here. I have been admitted to the NY bar since April, but I need to be admitted to the EDNY as well.
What are firms’ current office attendance policies? (Would be helpful if you name the firm).
Considering a 2 year move from Sydney to New York - I’m a female lawyer working in banking & finance, just recently made a senior associate. Any advice on living conditions in NY and general work lifestyle? Thanks!!
I’ve known for a long time that I wanted to switch to immigration law. What’s the better way to do it - part time with legal aid or full time with a small firm? I was thinking I could study to become competent while part time but maybe that’s silly? I’m just worried the small firm may not see me as a qualified candidate since I’m 5 YOE commercial lawyer
Anyone’s firms trimming costs, e.g. canceling events, stopping people from going to conferences, etc.?
Does anyone have insight into lateraling into NY BigLaw from regional BigLaw? I am a mid level restructuring associate that has worked on big cases all around the country. But, I’m wondering if there’s a barrier to entry that I may not be aware of...
2017 grad so technically a 4th year. Lateraled to a CRE boutique in NYC that’s a major player. Learned quickly that my experience/knowledge/organization is not up to par (was a COG in the machine at prior firm). Just had EOY review and, though positive sounding, they’re dropping me to a 3rd year to ensure I’m not billing as a 4th year and able to do the work to learn/get up to par. I feel pretty okay about it (market salary deduction notwithstanding), but want to make sure I’m not being naive.
Had my first partner mentor meeting. We talked about career planning and getting involved in organizations in ny to meet people and help bring in business. What orgs are out there that you are in and enjoy the people?
Has any job searcher gotten an interview through networking or career posts here? Relatedly, is fishbowl an app paid/sponsored by (big) law firms to monitor how their employees really feel/think? I know it started out in the ad industry...

Foreign LLM student here. I plan to take the NY bar exam in February. I’m thinking of taking a bar prep course (most likely Barbri). They offer two options: the “traditional” course (which lasts around 2.5 months) and an extended 6-month course. The difference in price is substantial – 2.5k for the traditional course vs 6k for the extended one. Any thoughts/recommendations on which one I should take? In case it is helpful, I come from a civil law country. Thanks!

How do I get taken off a matter I really hate? I’ve been on it for a year and I absolutely hate the team. The culture is toxic and the partners are horrible bullies. My work product has been suffering as a result and I worry about this affecting my reputation/reviews. This is my busiest matter and I’ve tried saying I’m busy on something else but no one is listening. What are the pros and cons of telling the assigning team or the managing partner that I need off for my mental health?
I just received a couple of interviews for major law firms through OCI(Hogan Lovells, Paul Hastings, Kirkland and Ellis). I would love some tips and pointers that can help me through the interview! Thank you!
