There's probably a policy against it.

Does your employer need to know about it? I know it may be hard to hide a second job but if there is a way to be discreet about it, I would consider it

The conflicts and ethics issues would be a nightmare.

Ask your employer to waive it. If they don’t, then you know you need to leave once they right the ship.

You absolutely cannot take on another legal role while working for a law firm without disclosing it. And since you would need to run conflicts checks every time you worked on a matter potentially adverse to another it isn’t likely to be blessed.
