How bad does it look on your resume to leave after 1 year? Thinking about joining a start up because I feel like I’m not learning anything of value... just constantly iterating on decks.
Still a resident, but at this point didn't realize just how extreme the academic:private pay differential is

Just finished my first week in BL (I clerked the year before) and the imposter syndrome is unreal. I am paranoid, can’t tell if people are toxic or trustworthy, can’t tell if everything is fine or if I’m about to fail horribly and they will just watch it happen and not care. I’m so paranoid right now. How do you find people you trust? How do you trust that everything is okay if there’s no indication things are not??
Recently transitioned to a private firm and am having difficulty getting used to billing. Any advice?
Runners: I have some muscle from weight lifting. I’m about to start training for a marathon. Assuming I keep up food intake weights. Will I lose all my muscle? Everyone keeps saying I will be a green bean after

Any advice on how best to “pitch” myself when a recruiter asks for an estimate of how many times I’ve drafted specific types of briefs/other motions?
I have almost 2 years under my belt, for reference, so not a ton of experience to pull from unfortunately.
My job search has been discouraging, and this position would be a dream, so any feedback will be much appreciated.
I have so much anxiety about making mistakes at work, with the latest one over a partner calling out a mistake I made (and should’ve known about) that a senior associate also didn’t catch during her review. I adore this senior associate and actually triple-checked everything to make life easy for her, and yet still somehow missed this ONE (tiny) thing. Does it get better with experience? As in less anxiety and less mistakes on the details?
Hi all—sorry this might be a bit personal or tmi, but I started big law about a year ago, which has been incredibly stressful etc. since then, I’ve noticed that my cycle has gone haywire, I miss periods or getting multiple the same month, there’s just no predictability anymore. I was wondering if anyone else has gone through this before? Does it get better/does your body adjust to the stress or will this just be my life now?
Would this work with dresses? I am looking for nice (not too high) heeled shoes for work. https://www.aerosoles.com/products/east-side-dark-tan-genuine-leather?gclid=Cj0KCQjwl_SHBhCQARIsAFIFRVWPOumNX6nsFxyMRz-jAecQWgPBvKcwo3scCpdhaXqw_7Kxm-2W7xYaArj6EALw_wcB
Unrelated to law - but what is everyone asking for from their SOs for the holidays? Mine keeps asking me what I want, but I am blanking!!
Wondering if any of you have an SO who is more of an effeminate man? Was the physical attraction slower to appear, but formed as you got to know them more?
I’ve gone out twice with a guy whose personality I like, but the physical attraction is taking longer to appear as he’s not my usual type. He’s a software engineer, a bit introverted, tall and slender, not athletic, and his voice and mannerisms are kind of feminine (he was raised by his mom and sister, makes sense?), which is new to me
When my tenant/boyfriend was under lease of my land he erected a metal storage building and continued to inprove it. He also has been restoring a small shed on the premises. Once executed lease was up verbally agreed he could continue and just maintain property until I he was ready to buy or if we got serious we would build. A strained and toxic relationship unraveled. So now he has improved on the property almost as much as what my total investment has been since I purchased property.
Billed 2 hours today which I know means that I’ll have to work all weekend 🤡 but it’s hard to care at the moment! Been just zoning out for the past several hours, the burnout is very real and I am struuuuuggling. Happy Friday 🥲
What time do you guys officially sign off for the day? Or what is your typical evening on a workday? Wondering if my SO expecting a 6 pm turnoff everyday is reasonable and I’m the unreasonable one. In big law
Anyone here from Maryland, DC, or northern VA and doing L & E litigation (or know anyone who is)? (I’m a recruiter working on a search.)
How many billable hours per year could you work with a newborn, assuming you are primary caregiver, WFH is ok, and the files are unlimited?
Did anyone ask their spouse (or anyone they dated) to marry them? Curious to hear the circumstances and how it ended up. I’ve been with the same guy for 7 years and wondering if I should make the move
Is there something wrong with spending time with a new partner on Christmas? I’m away from family and I spent the morning and last evening with friends. Relatedly, if I don’t mind, is there something wrong with putting in a billable hour or 2?
Ladies, do y’all enter time for emails? If yes, are y’all billing it to the client or as a non-billable time entry
How do you know if you don’t want to be a lawyer anymore or just need to switch practice areas? I’ve been doing this for four years and feel like I can’t anymore. Started working with a career coach who specializes in helping lawyers leave the law earlier this year. I feel lost and exhausted—for the first time I don’t know what I want to do with my life! Anyone ever gone through this?
Low billable, low pressure work in patent lit, tech trans or privacy law? Slowly realizing that as my boys get older, the money isn’t worth what I’m missing out on. Currently a patent litigation associate with lots of hearing, depo and trial experience (I’ve appeared on my own at hearings/depos) at a well respected firm. Have my CIPM and CIPP/US /E and /C. Just feeling the burn out; 2000 hours of billables a year just isn’t sustainable for me long term. Money isn’t a huge issue.
