CA attorneys, what's a trial call? If I have a date/time for a trial call in a case, does that mean that day is the first day the trial is set for?

You and OC show up to tell the judge you’re ready for trial, advise of scheduling or witness availability constraints, give the final trial time estimate, and the judge tells you their availability to start trial. Assume it will be the next court business day until they tell you otherwise. I’m in civil in San Diego; our trial calls are always Friday and if the judge can’t start Monday, we either can ask for a date certain with that judge some time in the future or get assigned out to the first available department.

No worries, they make it sound very mysterious when it’s probably the only short and efficient thing you’ll do the entire trial!

Where I’m at:
- 16 years of sales exp, 0 of which in tech
- Working on DataCamp to learn SQL and Tableau; enjoy the challenge.
- Just started exploring SF Trailhead, specifically an SF Admin trail.
- I’m trying to break into a remote position in tech, but I am unsure what route to take.
- Basically, I’m lost. I feel like I’m playing checkers while others are playing chess.

If you have experience working through a career change (in your early 30s) as you break into tech, I’d appreciate any tips.

Just starting as a junior in a big law firm. Everyone seems nice and the work is interesting. My big fear going into this is boundaries crossed for big events (weddings, birthdays, etc). I already told my workload coordinator dates I will be unavailable and will tell people on those teams too. I’m fine with working nights and weekends when I don’t have plans (or little plans I could cancel) but I’m getting scared about interference with the big things. Any advice on how to set those boundaries?
