Anyone have a side hustle? Not sure how long things will stay slow, but I have at least 20-40 hours / week of free time. Looking to learn a new skill and make some more money.

If you’re a midlevel and above, why not teach remote law courses or bar prep courses or tutor law students? Most other law jobs will require conflict checks

For the record, I’ve been doing this for a couple years. I think it helps my credibility with many of my clients too. They assume you must know what you’re talking about if you teach at a law school. Many law students from upper middle class and wealthier backgrounds are also willing to pay a premium for bar tutoring from BL associates because they assume you must’ve had great grades and have some secret cheat code that can help them get there too. If you market that, you can make a lot of money that way. You can even make and sell prep courses and materials (I don’t have time for that part though. I just teach at a law school)

I’m trying to figure out if affiliate marketing actually works or if it’s a scam and the only people who make money are those that sell courses/guides.

If it’s the latter then I’m going to figure out a course/guide that I can make & sell.

Does anyone have family members who constantly demand money because they feel like you’re rich now because you’re a lawyer? I’ve always wanted to be in a position to help my family but we all live in the high COL city so my salary doesn’t carry me as far as it would elsewhere. I’ve given a detailed summary of all of my expenses yet every month one family member in particular comes to me for rent money (not some, the full amount, and they refuse to get a job). It has become quite the burden.

Man this Bowl is filled with some angry mid-levels. We get it, this job was hard for you, but it is for juniors now, too. Stop punching down.

I don’t think the juniors are entitled, they just want to share in their firms’ wealth. Surely any salary increases for the Classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021 would easily pay for themselves through billable hours.

How common is it for juniors to blow deadlines?
I see tons of posts about the worst things a young associate can do, but is it really that common to make glaring errors repeatedly? Are they communicating and asking for more time or simply ghosting people? What types of smaller errors are mid-levels so used to seeing that they just write it off as learning, especially when it comes to drafting and to details? I guess I’m just curious about the norm across firms.

Anyone else who feels that they want to step into the more analytical/executive/operational/financial side of business?

I feel that as a corporate lawyer, you’re mostly doing the necessary details to carry out someone else’s decisions (= EG the boring part of business). The most "strategic" advice you give is perhaps advising on a choice between transaction models.

Would only a law degree and big law transactional experience be sufficient to go into more traditional business roles?

Recently I was let go from a position I successfully commandeered for 3 years. With the world of hiring now days I have applied to positions that fit my qualifications and reach out to recruiters to never hear a peep back. I decided to research this and see on average it takes 6-12 weeks to hire a new employee. I actively peruse positions below a minimal salary for myself because I want to work and provide. If anyone has advice or suggestions please let me know.
