First year associate here in biglaw working for a practice group I have zero previous experience in. I didn’t go to t-14 but excelled at my school, but I can’t help but feel completely inadequate in my position, feel like I know absolutely nothing about the area I’m in and am struggling with research assignments, and generally just assume the older associates think I’m just not that smart. Never felt like this in previous jobs. Any advice?

Down because I got some upsetting (work-related) news yesterday. I was up for promotion and did not get it, basically for my actual job that I have been acting in for over a year. I had perfect reviews and perfect on the technical portion of the interview. Apparently they dinged me on something subjective relating to situational competencies. Colleagues—who I trained and mentored—did receive promotion and we will all be working at the same job, just them at higher level and pay. Contd.
