Hi Everyone! Sorry for posting on here. I was trying to find the BigLaw bowl , but wasn’t able to. I needed some advice on dating a guy that works in big-law (cont)

BigLaw associates have to bill time for every 6 minutes, so just a coffee or bathroom break actually takes away from billable time. And they have to bill accurately or they can be sanctioned for an ethics violation. I think taking a half day to respond in that environment is reasonable


I recently started dating a guy that works in big law. But, getting to know him more has been challenging. He takes hours and hours to respond to my messages. Like more than half a day. Our relationship is progressing very slowly because he’s a workaholic

It’s getting to the point where I am questioning my relationship with him. Like does he not like me? Or is he truly that busy.

How much do biglaw folks work? Is it really that much?

I didn’t know that. Thanks for letting me know. This helps put things into prespective

Good luck! :)

Is there ever a scenario where it would be beneficial to the employee to enter into an arbitration agreement with your employer (mutually consent to resolve by arbitration all claims or controversies, past present or future that the company may have against you or you against the company/company's employees)? I can't see any real benefit as an employee to waive my rights.Context: received an offer in which there is a voluntary arbitration agreement. No adverse employment action if I opt out. TIA

A question:
Is it possible to become an attorney (getting JD, admission to bar and keep license to practice) but not practice law at all and keep working in a totally different profession where you are already working at? I know professionally this doesn’t make sense but just curious to know.

Hi! Anyone attend law school part-time while working full time? If so, would you be willing to share the total debt you graduated with? I only ask because I have not been able to find any info related to this online (only stats on full-time students).

I will be submitting applications to schools in one month, but really want to gain a better understanding of finances during and after graduating from law school.


If my lawyer sent a document with my signature on my behalf to the judge/investigator before I was ready for them to and didn’t notify me till several hours later when I asked when the final doc would go be ready for me to review, should I be upset? I was not copied or bcc’d on the email so I feel like this is unacceptable but not sure what lawyers usually do.
