How do you evaluate things like “culture” in a law firm interview? I’m at a mid-size firm and I love small my team (& my low billable hours requirement), but at the firm & department level things have become really toxic.

This was my first job out of law school, so I don’t really know how to scope out red flags in an interview. Any recs?

I’m not sure if I’m overthinking this but I (25M) have a feeling a friend(23F) is hitting on me. Whenever we hang out she’ll get really close and keep touching/poking me whenever we need to turn corners, cross the block, etc because she’s the navigator. When we sit next to each other on the bench she’ll be up on my personal space up. Just a lot of shoulder to shoulder touching. I had other female friends this touchy as well but I wouldn’t think anything of it because some people are touchier 1/2
