It’s annoying how I know that my partner barely reviews what I draft and just says “[l]ooks good. File.”
I have major pandemic burnout. I hate how we are expected to work at the same level as prepandemic. I was able to at the beginning but this second winter busy season is kicking my ass. We only have a month and a week left but I don’t know how I’ll deal with the next month. I feel that I’m going way too slow. I end up not taking breaks because I don’t feel like I can and that I am wasting time if I do. My mental health is in the toilet. Any suggestions?
What’s the best vix tracker to buy? I’m so worried about this bubble. Probably going to sell half of positions and sit on cash. I’ll be okay w not making more money than losing half my money

Hi all, I have been offer a position in #JPMC last week but the joining date given in offer letter is of before end of my notice period. I've dropped an email to HR for clarification/correction, but they are not responding. And today I got auto-generated email that my offer is expiring today. HR hasn't shared any mobile number, only office landline, which they aren't picking. Please suggest.

Should I lateral to another firm?
At a MM firm where cash comp is lower than normal but carry is higher at junior levels and returns are strong. I won’t receive any carry until ~2025 and then will be really strong, but until then I’m hung out to dry. Should I make a jump somewhere else to expedite comp increases?

Best/worst secret santa gifts <$20? I have to get some for work and different friends groups. Ugh I do not love the holidays
Does anyone hate litigation so much they’d rather work in retail again? Where all the non-litigation transactional jobs at these days? 🤷🏻♂️
I put my 2 weeks in and I literally have no billable work right now. Are they watching my billables? Can I just chalk this up as part of my "unlimited" vacation time? I'm available if needed, but also working remote, so could get away with doing bare minimum, I think.
Has anyone ever been sued for malicious prosecution and had your legal assistants (employees) named as individuals as defendants?? I’m in CA.

Our opposing counsel is tracking our email views with an email tracking software and have gone on to produce this before a TTAB. Is is ethical for an attorney to track emails like this?
How to follow up without sounding desperate? I already let them know I have competing offer expiring. They promised to get back to me multiple times but still don’t have final decision from them despite positive feedback.
Legal treatise author/editors -- Anyone have experience taking over as author/general editor of a large legal treatise? This opportunity came across my desk to take over as editor of an existing treatise, which could be a good opportunity... or a real chore. Mainly involves corralling contributing authors to update their chapters, reviewing that work, and coming up with new chapter topics. There would be royalties, but nothing too meaningful. And I'm skeptical of any real biz. dev. value...
What is the best way to master Logic games on the LSAT? I’m having the toughest time wrapping my brain around these question stems.
Ordered my peloton in the beginning of November. They just called and said my bike that was supposed to be delivered tomorrow is going to get here March 22. That is approximately 4 months. Has this happened to anyone else?
As a junior associate at a boutique firm, one of my biggest stressors is navigating how involved partners want me to be on their cases. Some expect me to just take initiative to get the ball rolling on filings with upcoming deadlines, and others don’t want me to touch anything until they explicitly ask me to. I offer to do things and communicate what I’m working on, but I worry that I’m overstepping by assuming it’s ok for me to work on stuff without first being asked. Advice? Can anyone relate?
Corporate lawyers, do you use an iPad for work? In what ways has it proved most useful or valuable? Would you recommend getting one?
Considering getting an iPad Pro and apple pencil but trying to justify the $1200 sticker price. I markup docs and doing it with a computer mouse is really starting to strain my wrist (even with a wrist rest/vertical mouse) but I'm not sure that alone will be enough to warrant getting one. Are there another uses for the iPad?
I’m a third year business and corporate lit associate at a boutique NY firm (with heavy litigation work and some transactional work for a major well drilling company). I was just given a legal assistant because my workload has increased substantially. I’m too busy to delegate (court), and she knows nothing about law. She’s never worked in a law firm. She’s very eager to help and often gets underfoot, and the other assistants are too busy to train her. I don’t trust her enough to delegate. Tips?
Setting aside Dry January (for those who partake), how many days per week do you consume alcohol? What day (before today) was the last day you consumed zero alcohol? For those working from home, what is the earliest you have started drinking on a work day? (Any difference on Fridays?)
What advice do you have for an associate moving from being treated as a junior associate to midlevel?
Do you like the partner you work for/with? If yes, what have you learnt from them. If not, please tell me why. Somedays i think i work with a thoughtful good leader, and others (mostly) someone who doesn’t give a shit about their associates.
The worst symptom of burnout is the guilt for feeling like you haven't done enough to deserve to be burned out.
