Depends on the firm, but typically Cravath.


Stay away from Dallas. It is no civil place


I agree more with your first reply. Dallas is not a nice place.

Cravath generally but not everywhere.

Hey social peeps. Our agency is in real need of an influencer database so we can build consideration sets more quickly. Right now, we're basically using Google and Excel to do this.

I know some of these databases can get really expensive because they're baked into holistic campaign management software. I really want to avoid that...we're a 30 person agency and a $20k/month platform is prohibitive.

Anyone have any recommendations for cost-effective influencer databases?

Is there an “unspoken rule” that if you apply to other firms and are rejected it hurts your chances if you reapply to them in the future? I’ve been at a firm for a few months but the environment is toxic and I’m looking at other options.

I am a post bar graduate and currently seeking employment. I did not graduate from a top tier school, but I did graduate in the top third of my class as a dual-degree graduate. About a week ago, a partner at a big law firm connected with me on LinkedIn. He asked if I had a job lined up. I told him no and he responded that I should let him know if there is anything his firm or he can do to help me. We have a meeting with each other in two weeks. Is this a big law opportunity?

How do my fellow litigators deal with hearings that don’t go so well? Whether you fumble over your words, don’t make all the points you wanted to make, or the judge is annoyed and/or gives a bad ruling, etc. I just had a hearing this morning where the judge granted my motion but only after acting annoyed and coming very close to denying it. Now I am replaying in my head what I could’ve done differently and kind of beating myself up. Does this happen to any anyone else?


That moment when your "smart" plan to boost your hours this month by working the Labor Day weekend (thus turning down all the fun plans your friends made) becomes sitting on your hands & feeling dumb because all the partners are too busy to delegate anything.
