I want my exhibit numbers and declaration paragraph references to automatically update in my motion/MPA. Anyone have a way to do this? Trying Word’s Master Document feature, but seems buggy.

Not 100% responsive but I deal with the exhibit number issue by not caring whether the exhibit numbers track the order in which exhibits are cited. That is if I have 29 exhibits and add a new one, the new addition becomes exhibit 30 no matter where it appears. Judges and their clerks couldn’t care less whether the numbers are “in order.” What they care about is easily being able to find the source document. Just a thought.

If you figure out how to do this please teach us your ways. I would pay tons for a CLE on this.

Also very interested. This would save AT LEAST the half hour after the MSJ is finalized dedicated to triple checking exhibit numbers and their citations before filing.

Also following for comments. I’ve tried this a few different ways on a few different iterations of Word, and, every single time, Word has just ended up imploding on me. So far, the fastest way has been to do it manually at the end.

I'm really lost in my career. Started out in ID and hated it, jumped around and made it out of ID to my desired area. Been at my current firm almost a year, but it's totally toxic and I'm likely being pushed out. Trying to make it work and stay here for as long as I have as I've jumped a lot in a short time and frankly I don't want to jump again. I had the chance to go back to ID and work for an old mentor who is incredible and go back to doing what he does (continued in comments)

Writing sample question. I drafted a really complex dispositive motion that was granted. It was obviously revised by the partners on the case but can I still use it as a sample?

Curious what people have done in the past. I'm interested in lateral positions so can't exactly ask the partners I work with.

Interested to hear your opinions. Is it impossible to be a litigator and work remotely regularly? I understand that trials and prep will likely be in person, and arguably should be, but I’m a mid-level who has thrived during remote work.

I talked to my managing partner about my desire to work remotely more often and he said it’s impossible to be a remote litigator and it’s important to get back to the office (once everyone is vaccinated and healthy).
