Day rate = no fractional days. Otherwise you’re hourly — and that could open up a huge can of legal worms, as they would likely owe you back-pay for unpaid overtime.

Full. You couldn’t have taken other work.

Exactly what ACD said. I don’t know what these “half” folks are on about, but that’s the point of a day rate. If you don’t charge extra for a 12 hour day, you don’t charge less for a four hour day. That’s what the point of a day rate is — to minimize risk for both parties by setting clear pay expectations in advance.

Full. If you think of the other days/hours you’ve worked it prob more than makes up for your 5 hours.

What kind of security clearance do attorney positions with domestic agencies require?

But I’m not trying to stay in big law if I could land federal government at half the salary. Is it worth pursuing before cleaning up my risk factors?
