Got a referral to BCG and still haven’t had anybody follow up to screen or interview me. It’s been two weeks now. Lol do I give up all hope? How long does this usually take?
I didn’t make guy friends in college because I grew up being ingrained that I cannot date, and was unconsciously afraid that people will judge me for liking someone because I always felt unattractive but like people out of my league. I actively avoided guys to not cause any misunderstanding, but was still caught up in drama/triangles? All the guys I became acquainted with were super offended I didn’t consider them to be a close friend/romantic interests. Was it because they liked me?

Just finished watching Downfall, call me naive but it amazes me how not one person got jail time.
HELP! I’ve been contacted by a small private security firm who wants me to be their “on call” counsel. They describe it as a lot of contract review, drafting NDAs, etc. but also being there if/when they need to license a vehicle, defend civil suit, etc. It’s overwhelming but sounds like a really great opportunity. I have enough background to be comfortable with contracts and litigation, but don’t want to get myself into a mess. Has anybody else ever had a job like this?
I'm a 1st year @ a civil lit defense firm. I summered here and got the "our firm culture is amazing, we want to grow and help you learn" pitch and accepted the offer of $75k, thinking that was what most other associates make (I'm 1st gen). But today I found out that associates with 4yrs experience are making $80k; for hitting the 1950 billable req., the bonus is $1k. I've also found there are big DEI problems that I can't overlook. It feels like the pitch was a big lie. Advice?
When will I find my passion? I’m a criminal prosecutor chasing PSLF (5 years left). I am just not that into it. My wife is a teacher and loves her job so much she could work 16 hour days. I am jealous. My passion is my family and my job is just a paycheck. How can I figure out what I really want to do? Do I want to get that obsessed with work? Help!
I just sent a work-related message to a person that’s staffed with me in a deal. I’ve become what I swore to destroy.
How does everyone handle managing their caseload and utilizing their paralegal(s)? I litigate primarily, with occasional small transactional projects that come up in the course of those files. It’s usually real estate related—drafting a purchase agreement, deed, etc. My firm is not one where we specialize so much that each case has the same process as every other case. So it often feels like I’m having to tackle something brand new in each and every case. (cont.)
Mexican attorney here - I am currently researching LLM programs (specifically M&A) and somehow paying USD$200K to study in the US doesn’t seem too appealing.
I hold a Spanish passport which may help with tuition fees in European Universities - do you recommend any European LLM programs or should I just bite the bullet and ask for a loan and pay the USD$150 - 200K?
Mentioning the programs is greatly appreciated.
Has anyone transitioned from a case smart attorney position to an associate at Littler? Elsewhere? Is it feasible ?
Happy Be Kind to Lawyers Day!
Nothing like the named partner who you *know* is actively opposed to associate salary increases (despite living in a market where the COL has significantly risen and outpaced general inflation) telling you about how annoying it is to winterize her 4 mega luxury sailboats she has on her waterfront dock. 🙄
Hello! I just accepted a position in Pensacola, Florida. I'd appreciate any insight about the town, housing, vibe,etc. If you guys could share pros and cons please. TiA!
Just found out that not everyone in my office is "sold" on the vaccine. Meanwhile, I'm going to be first in line having a pre-existing condition and family members that are high risk. I, apparently wrongly, assumed that the question of vaccination wouldn't have even arisen in my small legal office, but here I am freaked out about the future...
