Thoughts/advice: my boyfriend and I met when I was in college at 18 and he was 23. We’ve been together 6 years. The first 3-4 years were long distance and then we moved in together in 2020. We have a 1 year old son. He told me he knew I was the one when we moved in together (4 years in) and bought my engagement ring a year ago right before I had our son but still hasn’t given it to me yet. I’m ready to leave honestly. Am I being dramatic and should keep waiting or is his head somewhere else?

Any suggestions for successfully lateraling from a boutique/midsize to big law as a second or third year in entertainment (lit or transactional), particularly in LA?

I didn’t attend law school in LA (or T15) but otherwise have a transferable, well rounded resume with ample experience (IMO). Workload and Covid has nearly eliminated all networking events. Are these opportunities really limited to associates from the same handful of schools?

Never Google “Supra or infra” again!

I admit, as a fifth year big law associate it has taken me way too long to find a good memory devise for whether Supra or infra means “see above” or “see below.” But I found it and now I’ll share it with my other Latin-vocabulary-challenged fishies.

“Supra” has the word “up” in it. As in: see up! Boom. Done. You’re welcome.

Man this Bowl is filled with some angry mid-levels. We get it, this job was hard for you, but it is for juniors now, too. Stop punching down.

I don’t think the juniors are entitled, they just want to share in their firms’ wealth. Surely any salary increases for the Classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021 would easily pay for themselves through billable hours.
