Is the Celine Nano Luggage back out of style or a modern classic? I remember it blowing up a few years ago but still love the look, not sure if it would look outdated

Is there a limit to the number of H1B extensions/amendments you can get while you are within your 6 year period? I switched jobs recently and want to make sure that doesn’t impact the 6 year timeline. I heard no limit, but want to verify with experienced folks here!
Also is there any timeline limit on switching jobs again?

Don't feed the trolls
Hey, for product designers who work at FAANG companies, what would you say are the most important elements of a case study? Mine are process-oriented to show my thinking, but is there specific things the companies care about most?
I have been searching for job from quite a long time and all I have seeing HR/Panels asking for
1. Number of implementation projects done.
2. Work experience on S4 Hana.
And if I don't have atleast any one of these, I will not be considered.
Is it really that important ?
Being joined as a fresher - Is it really something that I can decide whether to be in support or implementation project ?
Is upgrading of ECC to S4 Hana in my hands ? And the difference is really that vast ?

How to deal with a partner who frequently calls me to review my work on the phone and wants to talk through every change no matter how small? We usually end up making very few changes from the draft and then sending stuff off. The first time they have reviewed is on the phone. But I also have other work and it’s hard to sit on 1+ hour phone calls and be unavailable. I have not had work product issues to date with any partner. Any ideas or do I need to just suck this one up?
Has any other attorney been told to remove their masks for the duration of a hearing? I am wondering if there is some CDC guideline allowing this that I'm not aware of...
Female here - want to buy a beautiful navy blue suit for interview tomorrow but blazer doesn’t have a button - unprofessional?
Passed up for partner, but told there is a potential opportunity to make counsel and then partner. Not sure whether this is an opportunity or dead end.
Best advice you’d give to a young associate...
I feel so bad for the people who quit biglaw and end up as lexis/westlaw reps... that was not the life they planned for themselves lol
I started a new job with Flex work hours and I gotta say I love it. I work from 5-6:30 then take care of my family get them to school. Back online at 9:30 and off by 5. So far it’s been great.
Has anyone interviewed at Google? Can you please share some of the questions that were asked or anything else about the experience? Thanks!
I chose litigation instead of corporate and am starting to deeply regret it. I am a second year biglaw associate. I doubt my ability to be a great “litigator” as I like writing but hate speaking. Are there good exit options for litigators that DON’T involve simply going to a boutique firm or becoming a government litigator?
Has anyone else ever gotten a highly nuanced research question from a partner that they never found an answer to? I’ve been researching this question for over 5 hours and literally have nothing to show for it. What’s the best way to tell this partner that there is nothing out there?
I went on an interview yesterday. To say it was disappointing would be an understatement. The partner that interviewed me was nice, but he did not understand transactional law. At my last firm, I was a hybrid between transactional tasks and litigation. When billable hours came up, he scoffed at my previous requirement and stated that his were at minimum 60% more. He told me about the “good ole days” when associates were expected to work 200 billable hours a month. He can’t find anyone.
Anyone go from biglaw to specializing in FCA/whistleblower practice at a boutique or midlaw? Or otherwise currently working in that field? Curious what the pros and cons of doing that type of work are, typical salary/bonuses, and what exit options look like if you ever wanted to leave private practice. TYIA.
How long does it take for work to ramp up in a new job? Enjoying the slow times but also a bit worried this is permanent
Just gave notice (ID firm) and now I’ll mostly be wrapping up files but also doing some actual work. What should my billing look like now? Usually it’s 8-9 hours a day
With tax season upon us, is the below accurate? If so, I can have grandma take out a loan in her name while we live in it 😈
“Seniors who still pay a mortgage can deduct all mortgage interest on mortgages that do not exceed $750,000.”
Does anyone feel their practice area is fun and/or exciting? I’m a commercial litigator and yes I have a wide variety of cases but it’s becoming kind of redundant. I’ve always had an interest in business, finance, investments etc. (private equity and stock market) and was wondering what practice would be best to merge the two?Any suggestions or comments on what you find to be an enjoyable practice area?
