Do any law firms use an email distribution list manager or Outlook plug-in of some sort to import and keep track of working group circulation email addresses on large deals? Any suggestions welcome!

I'd use a google sheet or excel spreadsheet as a working group list. The concatenate function off the email column of the sheet is your friend here.

In my experience, we set up an email address (like Project[x]@[lawfirm].com) and can add members to that Outlook group.

Yep we create a new email for the project and have the help desk get all emails to that address forwarded to the people on the team and their LAAs/other staff, can also make groups in outlook

I started to dramatically reduce my calorie intake in hopes to lose weight. Like most, I gained almost 60 pounds during the pandemic. On top of that I hurt my back (herniated disc).

i’m at about 1500-1800 calories. I was usually around 3000 cal. I’m 6’4 and 275 pounds.

I have a fair amount of muscle under my fat. With reducing my calorie intake so much do I run a risk of losing my muscle before my fat?

Friends, I’m 25, entering my third year in MBB, and I’m so burnt out (I’ve averaged close to 80 hours / week since joining and hate the culture). I’ve always had a passion for public interest law, have worked at an impact litigation firm, and am convinced that going to law school is the answer. I’m afraid that without a big scholarship, I’ll land in big law to pay off loans and will be in the same situation I’m in now (with 100k+ debt). Any advice? Thank you!

It's a tough market for juniors who got laid off. The firm offered 3 months pay and website time. I am in a niche area and not many firms doing this kind of work.

I may have to switch focus to boutique firms whether they are paying market or not.
