I had an interview last week and intended to follow up, but a shitty unstable housing situation got in the way and I didn't manage to send the thank you note or my CV in the rush to find a place to stay. Probably too late to apply now, but is it worth sending a follow up note thanking them for their time and apologizing? This was an informational interview with the Head of the Dept, not a recruiter.
I’m a 1st yr who started at a large firm during WFH status in 2020. My section is severely understaffed and as a result I:1) believe that I am not receiving enough training/feedback (& I ask!), and 2) am getting a lot of work with not enough time to complete. I know a portion of my experience is the learning curve, but I told my mentor I felt that this is not sustainable and she agreed. Anyone else have a similar experience? Any advice on how to best address this issue at yearly review?

Hey 👋 In House 🐟 - how did you learn to sound more "lawyerly" when talking to clients early in your legal career?

1) Top tier law school 2) big law 3) neither but YOE>7 and/or 4) specialty (please share what)

Just wondering which kind of inhouse legal counsel role pays the best? Eg transactional, litigation, employment, regulatory. Thanks in advance!
I am a young partner at a small litigation boutique, with 10 years experience here plus 2 years clerking in federal court. My experience is general commercial litigation with an employment emphasis, as well as general business advising. I’m interested in moving in-house but don’t want to relocate (large regional city in southeast US), so my options are somewhat limited and I’m afraid I’ve missed my age/experience-window to do so. What’s the best way to pitch my experience as useful for in-house?
The mods are thinking of starting a weekly series where we breakdown the compensation / salary of an in-house counsel offer. It will include variables like location, YOE, alma mater tier, company sector, and company size.
Would this be of interest to the community?
