For all the schools going remote/hybrid in the fall. How much do you think it will really affect the social parts? Won’t people still hang out, just in small groups?

A lot. No In-person orientation, travel, ragers, happy hours, flying to in person interviews together (where many friendships are formed), large section events, etc. Good luck making close friends on Zoom.

obviously less than in person. i think it depends on the school and how people organize. at my school we’ve been hanging out (as safe as we can)

Just want to vent… am I the only person who doesn’t want to stay WFH full time forever? Starting my career virtually hasn’t necessarily been bad, I just feel really disconnected from my team and partner. It’s hard to get to know people casually over teams. Living in my 600 sqft apartment with my boyfriend working in the other room is also tough. It feels like my world is smaller. I just feel like I’m sorta missing out on something.

There is a paralegal (not mine) in my firm that is making everyone miserable. She cries at her desk, complains about being overworked and is rude to the other paralegals, staff, and a couple of the attorneys. She is so disrespectful to me that I recently asked to work from home for a month (I am dealing with some other mental health issues and she is too much). My request was granted, and last Friday I was in the office to make sure several motions were filed properly. Continued in comment:
