A friend of mine is currently doing MBA from IIM Shillong. He got a summer internship opportunity from Xiaomi by winning their case competition. But they revoked the offers now due to recession.

Is anyone aware of a tax software (e.g., TurboTax) for preparing a form 706? For personal use, so cannot be a commercial license only product.
During Covid I was laid off, I took a job in compliance/ legal in house. However, I really am having trouble stomaching the pay cut. Anyway to get back to law firms?
I did it everyone. After a year-and-a-half on the insurance defense hamster wheel, I just accepted an offer at a boutique firm that handles complex commercial litigation. If you need me, I'll be in the corner crying happy tears into a bottle of champagne.
Anyone have any stories where you thought you failed the bar exam but ended up passing? I’m a retaker anxiously waiting dc bar results. They’re out tomorrow.
I hear first year partner compensation is actually *lower* than senior associate comp. And you have to by in. Is this true in many firms?
This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file? I’m a junior and I’ve been putting in ~10ish billable hours a day recently, which is more than I’m used to. The evenings (post-8pm) are generally my time to decompress - read a book, watch dumb tv, whatever - but it’s been all work lately until 10 or 11pm and I struggle to go straight from work to bed. Any insight on what everyone else does?
Just had an interview with a Senior Partner, was more of a chat and we got along really well. The interview ended with the partner saying they would get HR to set up a call for me with another member of the team. Any thoughts on this? I personally think its a bit weird to have an interview with a senior partner and then another team member?
I have a rough time at work for some reason I can perform really well for short periods of time but as soon as I know I'm doing okay I get lazy again, I feel like my life is just never going to be complete and it's going to be as empty as it is now forever. I don't want to lose my job but honestly it's hard to see the point in going forward beyond not being on the street. No essential vitality animates me I just learned forward like some sort of unwieldy machine.
How would you handle salary negotiation?
Class of 21. Took a job at a small general service firm in a tertiary market ~6mos ago because I wanted hands-on experience quickly. Compensation is ~$60k, which felt a little low but considering the low COL and the fact that I hadn't even been admitted to the bar yet, not bad.
How/when should I negotiate for an increase in compensation? My instinct is to ask for a salary bump to $80k around the one year mark.
I enjoy the firm and the work.
Has anyone switched from litigation to claims counsel for an insurance company? Any idea how the work/life balance compares? It seems like it must be better but just looking to hear from anyone who has made that move.
I’m looking for some salary advice. I’m a third-year associate at an ID firm in SF, making $120,000 per year. I’m mostly doing products liability and construction defect cases. I don’t have a JD, but I got my LLM from a T14 school. I bill between 180-200 hours per month. I feel like I’m being underpaid for the work I’m doing, but I’m not really sure. Any comparisons or insight would be great.
Some legal advice would be helpful (I’m a transactional attorney). A friend’s cousin was charged with a crime 20 years ago and deported by the federal govt. He was also charged by the state at the time, but as he was deported, he could not appear for a state hearing and was apparently charged with failure to appear. Yesterday he tried traveling to Mexico and was put in a holding cell and denied entry to the country, in part due to the open warrant. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
If a partner puts both his and the associate name on a pleading without associate having worked on it or knowing about the said pleading, and the firm gets sanctioned (say rule 11 for instance), does it mean that the associate is one of the sanctioned attorneys? Like it affects the associate’s later pro hac vice or insurance applications where it asks whether associate has been sanctioned?
In New Jersey, can you get half of the realtor fee back if you represent yourself when buying a house? That is the case in some states.
Quasi hypothetical, and absolutely not trying to go political: if a (former) president is meeting with their lawyer and a Secret Service agent is present, does that breach confidentiality?

Any recommendations for software that straightforwardly helps you collect, manage, organize, and prepare documents for production, e.g. in response to subpoenas (including ability to bates stamp)? Basically a one stop shop that is simple to use. Thanks so much
How much do you rely on your para? I’m in my 30s and pretty computer literate, I don’t dictate, I like doing research etc. I know other attorneys that have their paras do all their discovery, all their research, all their motions and I wonder how it’s possible to hit billables if someone else is doing the majority of your work? Seems crazy to me.
