Well worth it for Free CLE Programs. Great place for networking as well.


Agree that CLEs make it worthwhile. Haven’t been able to take advantage of networking as I joint in March


It’s the best deal out there.


Just found out that ACC offers a 30 day free trial!


It is definitely worth it. CLE, networking, pro bono opportunities and many other reasons. My company only pays for one organization and I dropped ABA for ACC.

Yes and yes.

Join and volunteer. Best decision you will ever make

I’m barred in a no CLE required state and haven’t really seen the value but I think some local chapters are more active than others

DC, Michigan, Massachusetts, Maryland, and South Dakota are the ones I’m aware of but there may be more.

I’m looking to transition into a career in consulting with a company(mbb). Will it make a difference if I end up in a T2 city vs let’s say Nyc or DC? Reason for career change is for more exit opportunities and better career progression.

Classic story that most of you have heard. Part venting part asking for advice. My bil applied for a job that matches less than 20% of his skill. With coaching from my husband and strong referrals he got the job(185k as manager in consulting ). Here I am in Consulting for last 6 years barely making 100k. I made a snarky comment that help only gets him this much and he will struggle at the job. My husband , rightly pointed out that I am being jealous, and most folks are fake it till you make it

Recommendations on books for a new family law lawyer? My friend recently started and I want to give her a book to help her out. She practices in FL if that makes any difference.


Send help!
I have been around 3 months working in a great company with a great salary, just bought a house and have a huge mortgage to pay… but I feel sooooo bored! This job in this company is not what I was expecting. I feel a bit miserable and still missing like 45 years to retire 😂 What’s happening to me? Why I can’t not find the passion in this dream job that I got?

Additional Posts in In-House Counsel

In-house counsel - would you prefer working at a big company specializing in a field of law, eg, privacy, IP, employment, etc, or a small company being a general counsel? Assume the small company has a higher risk of going under compared to the big company, but higher reward (via stock), and the large company pays a healthier salary.


Anyone else still waiting for Google? What’s the general timeline like?

Boss is gaslighting? Just experienced this for the first time - and would love to hear others’ experiences, too. For the past few years, my micromanager boss asked that I send them every draft of every contract to review, no matter how minor. In my performance review, when asked why I wasn’t promoted, they said that a reason was because I need to learn to stop sending them drafts to review! I said that I only did this because they asked for it, and they said they don’t remember saying that!

My co-worker is so resentful and competitive because I was promoted over her last year which caused a demotion on her end. People in the company still go to her for things that should be for me but she rarely corrects them. Shes still involved in the company too in a way that allows her to know secrets that I should know about but never do. I technically am above her within the company but this is how things are. I just do my job and try to not let it bother me but it does. Any suggestions?


I have a difficult time caring about what the business/company is doing big picture or advancing within the company. Just give me the contracts/matters you want me handle. Anyone else? Is this necessarily a bad thing?…don’t want to be married to my job.


This is a kind of funky question but I need as many ears as I can get - are you still doing safeguard forms or symptom check forms in your offices? How is your RTO process evolving from a legal protections standpoint?

I went from meeting HR to the head of my department I’d be working for in 3 days. This seems fast. Does it to anyone else? It’s a super fast growing fin tech. I think they may just need bodies.


My background is in tech transactional. I joined a cybersecurity SaaS startup at the end of last year and now also handle more generalist matters in addition to all things commercial-related. I have a number of books on contracts that I’ve found super helpful over the years (The Tech Contracts Handbook, A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, Sign Here, etc.). Can anyone recommend books they’ve found helpful for L&E matters, privacy matters, product matters, or marketing/advertising matters?


I recently joined a company after working for myself. I’m on hubs’s health insurance. We have no kids. It’s United healthcare. The company offers United as health insurance.
