Had a clerkship with a state court business session and have worked in a boutique business litigation firm the last few months, but need to make a change because of a owner that lied to get me to take the job. Any advice on transitioning to biglaw litigation?

Right now firms are eager for associates. It is a good time for the move. I would try applying directly to offices that would be local to your clerkship.

Thanks in advance

When people refer to “consulting” what are they talking about? People always say advisory is not real consulting. So what is real consulting then? Also, why is real consulting regarded as so much better than advisory?

I am torn between 2 “offers” - first is MBA (insead - no option to defer unfortunately) vs Amazon - Minimum TC 200k (SGD, incl, RSU) - non tech strategy role, first hire for my team in the region. I have 5.5 yrs exp. I see the later as more practical given I was aiming for FAANG post mba but also fear losing the network of the former.... Grateful for any views ☺️

What's a really good "difficult" question that you as a candidate can ask the (big law) interviewer? Context: I had callbacks at a big law firm while i was in law school and after one partner finished her questions and I finished asking my questions, she told me to ask her a really tough question, something to really stump her. l fumbled and am pretty sure that majorly factored into the rejection. What would you ask?

I recently got married and during our marriage permit process, I included my new married name and it was included in the permit. However, we just received our license and it only includes my original (maiden) name. The city clerk office is so hard to reach. Anyone had this happen before and were able to update this successfully? Thanks!
