Is it possible to be a professor and simultaneously counsel for a firm?

Yes, but conflicts considerations could get in the way of your academic freedom if your scholarship and writing involves topics/views potentially at odds with the interests of the firm’s clients.



I know several partners/counsel who are adjunct professors. Might be easier if teaching topics relevant to your practice, as opposed to publishing

I'm an adjunct for one class that involves more remote learning than in person. It can be challenging. I don't want the students to feel like second fiddle. But my clients deserve my focus as well. I probably won't take on another class for a while.

🐠- I am looking for some direction. My SO was furloughed earlier in the year for 3 months. Upon resuming the job in July, HR had confirmed that the 2020 PTO accruals not be prorated for the furloughed period. However, today they reached out to inform that 2020 PTO would be prorated and hence reduced. How to handle the situation? Any recourse?


Really low (day 1 of my periods) andI’ve been stressing today on things that are outside my control. Have my birthday coming up, and i’ll be 35 soon. No bf, no man, no marriage in sight. The clock is ticking, more so as i have large uterine fibroids, so not just my parents, even my gynec wants me to hurry up. Have been alone cooped up at home for more than a year now with no end in sight thanks to COVID. Dating is bust too. So all in all really lonely. Any words of encouragement?

Not bragging or showing off, but our household TC is £225k excluding bonuses. Somehow we manage to save £6k a month after paying out mortgage & bills and then a further £2k in corporate pension schemes. We invest our savings but the feeling of putting away £8k each month feels great. I thought when I'd get to this stage I'd have more desires to spend the money but there is nothing I can honestly think of right now that I'd love to buy. I didn't even spend a penny during the black Friday sales
