Like you said, depends on the company but in general BAs come into play when a new project/product is being built/rolled out or an existing one is being modified. So the role entails requirements gathering, a ton of meetings/workshops, a lot of coordination. Can get tough in more intense projects/industries (consulting) but by and large decent-ish (40 hours) in non-consulting

How did you get into your area of law? I have been licensed for 5 years and I still don't know where I ultimately want to be.

I was a good litigator but I had trouble turning off my brain and being present with my family when I was a litigator, so I don't think I would want to go back.
