Question on appropriate workplace behavior:
During a zoom preliminary injunction hearing, our client began “word-vomiting” on cross examination. My partner, who was probably aiming for our client, then kicked me under the table. I’m young and went straight to law school after undergrad, so I don’t know if this is inappropriate or not a big deal. Is this a red flag for my current firm? Thanks for your thoughts.

I’m a senior looking to enter the digital marketing field. Based on suggestions from career advisors and seniors before me, I’ve started cold messaging people on LinkedIn. I usually find a commonality (same uni, same ethnicity...) and ask for a 30 min zoom chat for a specific purpose (informational interview, asking for referral, curious about something). I wonder what do people on the receiving end of these messages feel? Are you normally interested? What do you expect?
