Recently graduated from a Canadian law school with a C average. I have landed a summer job every summer since I started and will be at a midsized full service firm going forward. However, my goal was to land a job in NY or Cali making 180k+ in the next few years. How slim are my chances of lateraling to the US?

If you’re going to get a LLM then get a tax LLM from NYU or Georgetown, the other LLMs aren’t taken very seriously.

I need an adult. Our team paralegal and senior attorney do not get along. Senior attorney asks for things to be done usually around 4-6pm. Paralegal will ignore the request completely, either because it’s “last minute” or just out of spite. Senior attorney does not respect boundaries, but paralegal does not realize that ignoring the request just makes more work for the rest of us. This is exhausting and occurs at least 2 to 3 times a week. Is there any way to resolve this conflict?
