I'm about to graduate & came to law school with the goal of being a public defender. I'm still open to the idea & I think it's still a worthy stepping stone (& I LOVED the 3 years I spent interning w/ pubdefs! Super fun!) but I've really come to love ideas of constitutional litigation & Bivens/1983 actions. Anyone here have any experience in that area? Not quite criminal defense but closely related I think. Would love to pick your brain, especially if you are in PA or DC.

I’m a new associate working for a well-known defense attorney in my state. On one hand, I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn from one of the best, but he also excoriates and belittles me for my mistakes. Any advice on how much it tolerable? I am here to learn and advance my career but he can be pretty nasty. (My mistakes are no worse than you’d expect a 1st year associate to make, in case you’re all wondering if I’m a major screw-up who deserves it) I leave work feeling a foot tall.
