A partner I’m working for really leans into jokes about my ethnic background. Nothing particularly egregious but all the jokes are about common clichés surrounding my home country / ethnicity. I occasionally make jokes like this about myself but I found that when my WASPy boss does this, it makes me very uncomfortable… am I being too sensitive?
I plan to quit without notice exactly one day before I move out of state. I know it’s not the best thing to do but the owner of the firm (small firm) is a vindictive POS. On a scale of 1-10 how bad is my plan? Thank you for input.

I’m tired of the city I live in. I want to move out of state but can’t practice law without 5 years experience or taking another state’s Bar or the UBE. Is taking another Bar exam or ube worth it opposed to a three and a half year wait (in my case) for reciprocity? Has anyone made this move before?

In 2008 with the layoffs who primarily got laid off? Junior associates, mid-levels, etc. or were incoming associates just delayed?
I’m a 1yr associate & having trouble with a paralegal/manager. She worked for our partner for 7 yrs & helped build this successful practice. She is smart, efficient, & runs a tight shop, which is appreciated. But the problem is she treats staff horrible. She talks down to them, has literally made grown women cried( she’s probably early 30s) and is know within the firm for being mean and other unkind words (our dept is separated from all other attys).
