I gave notice for my first associate position last week and the managing partner is making my life a living hell. Is this normal? She is making me call every client I have had an interaction with and explain that I am leaving the firm and other weird things. And advice would be appreciated. I only have a few days left but It is very hard to motivate myself at this point.

I don’t know that it is that terrible. Just use it as an opportunity to build a bridge and your reputation. You can call and just say “hey, just want you to know I am leaving the firm. My last day is X. I really enjoyed working with you. Please let me know if you need anything.” Or something like this.
You will get paid your notice period the same whether you make phone calls or do billable work.

I’m going to a non profit so it’s not really like they can follow me

I am having a lot of trouble understanding why someone who’s telling others to give you the silent treatment is also fine with you calling clients. Typically vindictive people like that want to call clients themselves and keep you from poisoning the well.

Sounds like you’re dodging a bullet OP. Good luck with your next role!

No. Definitely not normal, and sorry you’re going through this. Keep your eyes on the horizon and try to remain as professional as possible even though the managing partner acting like a child. You’re almost out of there.
