I would ask people to describe their day to you and what they envision your day would generally look like - ex: Can you tell what your typical day is like? Is there flexibility for work hours if I have personal appointments such as doctors/dentist/daycare? What types of projects do you envision this role would take on?

Ask once you have an offer. I recently went in house and was worried that I’d be working just as much as I did in big law and it’s absolutely not the case. But also recognize that lawyers just work a lot, regardless of comp.

I’m interviewing for in-house and firm roles and I’m not sure how to navigate the compensation issue. My first job out of law school was with a state regulatory agency so comp was slotted and basically limited to salary and PTO. What should I be looking for when I interview in-house? With a firm? I don’t want to leave compensation on the table and end up feeling undervalued later.

Something a little more fun that got me thinking - attended a Zoom dinner party with a French guest and an English guest. They asked what typical American dinners are.

What are the two meals you think of first when you think of your families? Definitely interested in anyone who is not American too!

For those, who are immigrants, what made you stay in New York? Would be especially interested to hear from those who didn’t come for economical reasons.

Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.
