Fellow litigation associates, how long does it take you to review e-mails in a document production from the other side? For example, how long would you estimate to review 1000 pages of emails?

10ish hours prob. I usually figure it’s about an hour per 100 pages. Also depends on the types of emails tho and what you’re reviewing for. A privilege check should go faster than reviewing for issues/themes/witnesses (substance)

About 100 documents (not pages) per hour, but the following all decrease that rate: more attachments per email, more complex attachments (i.e., excels or specialty files), more complex review (as A1 said, priv goes faster than confi goes faster than issues). Also, if it is threaded or at least ordered by date, it will go faster than if it is not.

I’m a little on the slow side, so that might take me 15-20 hours unless they were very cursory emails.

The recent most billable hours post, inspired me. What is your longest billable day? Mine was 56 hours straight with no break—and the partner was more than a jerk when I was saying no more at the 30 hour point. That was two 24 hour billable days back to back on my time sheet and on the bill, a 360 hour month, and 650 aggregated for two months. And it is one reason (of so many reasons) why this job can suck so much! At least I got a good bonus...

It really bothers me that I'll never have the confidence men do, and I think this will impact my career. Things like self-promotion to the right people, being highly confident in my abilities (rather than focusing on risks and mitigations), and just naturally walking into every room like I belong. I know these are not only qualities of men and I can develop them too. I'm just frustrated & venting because it feels like I'm trying so hard just to achieve the same goals. Anyone relate? Any wisdom?

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Hi All, I have a fully furnished, sun soaked, art-filled 1 BR apartment available for month-to-month rental indefinitely. The space is located right in the heart of Union Square. With noise insulated windows and a tree-lined view, the apartment gets great privacy. I am asking for $2k/month (which is significantly lower than what I pay), but am flexible depending on interest. Building: full service, door man building with elevators and laundry. (Continued in comments)
