The Boston Globe: Experts say some classrooms may need an air purifier — and offer advice on sizing.
Is it possible to (know you) love someone without having overcome a big conflict, endured a major relationship hurdle (e.g., long distance), or sustained through tough times (e.g., family death, job loss)? I feel I’m falling in love my boyfriend of ~8 months, but that I can’t know for certain / say it aloud until we’ve been “tested.” Perhaps my interpretation is too literal, but the saying that “love is an action, not a feeling” really resonates with me.
Anyone who has moved to Bain from Accenture? What are the pros and cons? How does the partner recruitment process look like? I have a first conversation next week with a senior partner and would like to go in prepared.

I just sent a work-related message to a person that’s staffed with me in a deal. I’ve become what I swore to destroy.
HELP! I’ve been contacted by a small private security firm who wants me to be their “on call” counsel. They describe it as a lot of contract review, drafting NDAs, etc. but also being there if/when they need to license a vehicle, defend civil suit, etc. It’s overwhelming but sounds like a really great opportunity. I have enough background to be comfortable with contracts and litigation, but don’t want to get myself into a mess. Has anybody else ever had a job like this?
How does everyone handle managing their caseload and utilizing their paralegal(s)? I litigate primarily, with occasional small transactional projects that come up in the course of those files. It’s usually real estate related—drafting a purchase agreement, deed, etc. My firm is not one where we specialize so much that each case has the same process as every other case. So it often feels like I’m having to tackle something brand new in each and every case. (cont.)
I'm a 1st year @ a civil lit defense firm. I summered here and got the "our firm culture is amazing, we want to grow and help you learn" pitch and accepted the offer of $75k, thinking that was what most other associates make (I'm 1st gen). But today I found out that associates with 4yrs experience are making $80k; for hitting the 1950 billable req., the bonus is $1k. I've also found there are big DEI problems that I can't overlook. It feels like the pitch was a big lie. Advice?
When will I find my passion? I’m a criminal prosecutor chasing PSLF (5 years left). I am just not that into it. My wife is a teacher and loves her job so much she could work 16 hour days. I am jealous. My passion is my family and my job is just a paycheck. How can I figure out what I really want to do? Do I want to get that obsessed with work? Help!
Just finished watching Downfall, call me naive but it amazes me how not one person got jail time.
Nothing like the named partner who you *know* is actively opposed to associate salary increases (despite living in a market where the COL has significantly risen and outpaced general inflation) telling you about how annoying it is to winterize her 4 mega luxury sailboats she has on her waterfront dock. 🙄
What’s your fave app to play when you take a break (or get distracted...) during the work day? I love Trivia Crack.
I have created a bowl for those who want to know more about their potential new firm - ask anonymously and hopefully someone within the firm will respond! Or we can help find the right person for you! Bowl name is biglaw offer - see you there!
How much time per week does everyone spend in the office (not so much a billables question, just time in the office pre-COVID orders)?
Mexican attorney here - I am currently researching LLM programs (specifically M&A) and somehow paying USD$200K to study in the US doesn’t seem too appealing.
I hold a Spanish passport which may help with tuition fees in European Universities - do you recommend any European LLM programs or should I just bite the bullet and ask for a loan and pay the USD$150 - 200K?
Mentioning the programs is greatly appreciated.
Has anyone transitioned from a case smart attorney position to an associate at Littler? Elsewhere? Is it feasible ?
Happy Be Kind to Lawyers Day!
Just found out that not everyone in my office is "sold" on the vaccine. Meanwhile, I'm going to be first in line having a pre-existing condition and family members that are high risk. I, apparently wrongly, assumed that the question of vaccination wouldn't have even arisen in my small legal office, but here I am freaked out about the future...
Hello! I just accepted a position in Pensacola, Florida. I'd appreciate any insight about the town, housing, vibe,etc. If you guys could share pros and cons please. TiA!
I’m a first year associate (I have been here a month and a half), what am I giving for Christmas to others in the office and who should those others be? Thanks in advance!
Thinking of moving from government to big law. Any advice, thoughts, etc? I’m worried about the billables and my mental health.
