Do you personally know of anyone who got covid after both doses of covishield (& 14 days gap after 2nd dose)?
I think that my boss may be wrong about a case analysis but I don’t want to step on their toes/am curious to know if I am missed something that they relied on… how do I ask them?
How much discomfort/inconvenience am I supposed to endure for work travel?
I’m being asked to travel from CA to NY for a trade show. Flight options are either overnight or amount to 18+ hours of travel. Plus, I’m a bigger guy and sitting in an airline seat for 6 hours is miserable. I was hired without any pre-defined travel expectations/requirements.
Vaccine mandates over finally. Except for the unconstitutional hypocritical NYC mandate.
Are there any big law attorneys (or former) who are also real estate agents/brokers? Taking my real estate license exam soon and want to know of any other success stories transitioning to real estate or working part time. Also interested in realistic comp working part time in CA. Thanks.

We have another great show of stand up comedy with happy hour drinks at Casa Mezcal 86 Orchard St. At 8p. Only $3. Not a better deal out there for stand up.
Ideas for managing relationships with colleagues in other cities (e.g. LA to NYC)? It’s so much harder to build/maintain good rapport when you can’t drop by for facetime and so much comm is by email

What do you all think about using cosmetics at work? Nothing too crazy, for instance, prominent cat-eye eyeliner. It makes me look good, but does look professional?
Anyone know an industry to pivot to after being in advertising? Honestly, I’d like to make more money, but also looking to do something else.
Anyone at Salesforce have a perspective on their engineering teams (particularly M/SM level)? Working through the hiring process now and interested in an outside opinion….

Has anyone here made partner after having children at their law firm? I’ve gone through two maternity leaves at my firm and am getting the impression that because my “numbers” (billables, revenue etc.) haven’t been as good as other associates who do not have children (or stay-at-home help for their families), I won’t be put up on time. This isn’t surprising to me, but I am ALSO reduced hours and I’m not sure how I will ever hit the numbers that other associates typically do (cont’d)
Does anyone know of the implications of the abortion bans on therapy and mandatory reporting? Like if a therapist is require to report if you intend to harm yourself or others, does that include having an abortion?
I would like to transition from a corporate transactional practice to a guardianship/conservatorship practice with a firm/org in another state. Any thoughts/ideas on how I can make this happen?
Aging parents - any book recommendations to help me learn about supporting and helping a parent cope with cognitive decline, dementia, going to assisted living, aging anxiety, and related issues, etc?
I want to improve my networking in the next year. My practice area (Corporate Litigation) relies mostly on referrals from other practitioners. That has been challenging for me as a somewhat quirky woman. Has anyone found a good resource for upping your game in this area?
Roe v Wade. Alright ladies, we need to get our s*** together and manage this country, because men can’t obviously do it by themselves. The only way we’re going to make it happen is by supporting each other and making that damn money ourselves.
What type of products are most effective for getting rid of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone?
There is a partner in our office that routinely discusses associate performance with other associates. For example, she will tell Associate A that Associate B isn’t performing and/or hitting hours, etc. Recently, I learned that she has been discussing “issues” she had with my work product two years ago (I no longer do any work for her). Is this something I should bring up? It bothers me that she is talking about me to others.
Just realized a firm partner has a pattern of treating female employees poorly. Except for the associate who brings in the big money, of course. But it's a trend, and the only reason he doesn't take it as far with me as he does with others is because I do EVERYTHING and he is screwed if I just up and leave. If you've experienced this, how did you deal with it? And yes I am trying to leave, the job market here is a little tough right now.
How do you deal with the sedentary lifestyle that comes with being overloaded at work and needing to be in front of the computer most days, sometimes into the AM just to get things done? I’ll have a good week where I get to go to the gym everyday, and then 2 weeks of it being impossible, having super late nights, throwing off my sleep schedule and still not keeping up. It’s frustrating and feel hopeless when lack of time is literally the factor, not some excuse
Need a referral for Linklaters - disputes practice. Please DM if you can help. Thank you!
At the risk of sounding like an absolute loser, does anyone else just ... not really have friends? I’m 26, never really connected with many girls in law school, and my handful of college friends are scattered far from me. Sure, there are people who I can text and vice versa, but I never have anyone to get a pedicure or drink with, let alone celebrate my recent engagement. I’m trying to stay positive, but it’s lonely out here!
finally going to trial for the first time in about two weeks! What are your trial necessities, for an out of town trial? Aside from the legal stuff I mean.
I’m generally a pretty prepared person, but having never been to trial, I’m sure there are things I won’t think of that can make all the difference 😬. Thanks I’m advance!!
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.
What are your favorite places/brands for buying casual dresses?
I’m WFH and STRUGGLING with productivity. I’m now “getting dressed” every a.m. in hopes of tricking myself into more motivation. I feel ridiculous wearing my usual work clothes, so I’m looking for dresses/options that are more casual but are still real clothes?
Please also share any tips for (1) resetting when you’ve let your life go to hell and are v overwhelmed with fixing it and (2) staying focused + motivated while WFH. TIA!
What are some important/reasonable questions to ask of future colleagues before accepting a pending job offer?
Input appreciated! As a second year associate, I have a reasonable 1800 billable requirement and make $70k, but I don’t feel aligned with the firm. I want more WLB and don’t care about making partner. I am considering pivoting to a contracts analyst position (glorified doc review) because it’s 100% remote, same pay, has a 40 hour cap (rather than my current minimum!), flexible hours, and no billables or stress. Would this be a bad idea for my career?
Interviewed with firm. Crazy close to home. Firm does my specialty. Seems like a good fit (I have ptsd from previous firms so gun shy). I think I got low balled salary wise. Like $25k less than what I am making now. I would have 4+ years more experience than any of their associates. Their most senior associate has like 4 kids and has a stay at home wife. I find it hard to believe they are paying that associate as low as they offered me. Probably going to counter but would it be wrong to compare
My best friend is getting ready to start another round of IVF. I’d like to give her a little something/care package as this is her third round. Any thoughts on what to do and/or gift? Haven’t been through this journey myself so not sure what’s appropriate. Thanks in advance!!
New to Fishbowl?

For the guy who proposed to me during law school? About $4k… on an unrelated note, thank God we never got married. If I ever meet someone new I’ll come back and comment how much that engagement ring costs 😂
About 25k. I found the insurance info when I went to insure my band. Love my ring but think that was excessive
7k for an 1800s emerald from a high-end Swiss estate sale. I adore it, but diamonds were never my thing
I have an emerald too! :)
$27k - I would have preferred the cash LOL
13K which was too much. I only found out after the fact and I still feel kinda guilty about it.
Under 5k. I don’t remember exactly how much but I also don’t care about such things.
$600 for Moissanite. Another $200 for the band.
Has anyone ever asked if it’s lab?
Engagement ring + wedding band were 3k total. I don’t know what the breakdown was .
