Hi! Anyone attend law school part-time while working full time? If so, would you be willing to share the total debt you graduated with? I only ask because I have not been able to find any info related to this online (only stats on full-time students).
I will be submitting applications to schools in one month, but really want to gain a better understanding of finances during and after graduating from law school.

Would you have concerns about switching jobs in this economy? I imagine things will get worse before they get better and I just received an offer for my dream job.

Recently found out a male attorney I manage makes significantly more than me. He has been licensed one less month than I. Any advice for how to approach my mgr? Small firm, so HR is not an option.
Am I in the wrong for feeling sour? I work under two male partners (one managing and the other just a regular partner whose been practicing 2 years less than me) and am constantly being given too much work to do. The managing partner doesn’t take my calls and is not one to talk about “feelings” and the other is known for always passing off work and manages to fall forward because he’s the managing partner’s favorite.

What is the bonus structure at your firm? I work at an IP boutique in patent and trademark prosecution. Our billable is 1850, which sounds nice except that patent prosecution is done on fixed fee so you can only bill so many hours per project. Bonus structure is gross salary divided by 1850 times hours over. So ex, $95 hourly x hours over 1850 and then taxed.

I have so much anxiety about making mistakes at work, with the latest one over a partner calling out a mistake I made (and should’ve known about) that a senior associate also didn’t catch during her review. I adore this senior associate and actually triple-checked everything to make life easy for her, and yet still somehow missed this ONE (tiny) thing. Does it get better with experience? As in less anxiety and less mistakes on the details?
Has anyone used BiBerk legal malpractice insurance in NYC and what was your experience? Any suggestions for alternative legal malpractice insurance companies?
Pt 1 - am a first year associate in big law and started dating someone the summer I was studying for the bar. My schedule was flexible then. After I took the bar, I had 3 months off before starting and I spent a lot of time with my SO.
