I have Canadian colleagues who were able to practice in Cal when they first arrived as long as they wrote the bar in a specific timeframe and the firms paid them for the time off (6 weeks) to study. It may be possible to practice in some capacity while you’re waiting if you similarly take the bar in a certain amount of time after you arrive….


You can still
Handle matters where you have a license and apply for federal licensure.


California -> Oregon. And I mean general ideas. I know I can’t practice law in a state without being licensed.

How long after you applied as a referred applicant did you hear from HR? Did they call or email you?


Was given a copy of my first evaluation from administration (this is my fourth year working for the school district). Admin didn't know that I went to central office the spring semester of my second year to get a copy of that eval.
When looking at both evals, I found that Admin changed some things after I got my copy which lowered my overall score. Went to my union rep about it, and now I have a conference with my principal. Did I do the right thing, or should I have just let it be?


Happy tell day! Drop your payrises and bonus %’s here fellow Accenture peeps

Writing skills

Wondering what everything things about a creative that’s being asked to write. At least a little bit. I used to love to write back in college but it’s a skill and perspective I’ve lost over the last 15 years. Is it just a matter of doing it, reading others work and practicing until I’m comfortable? Would love to get to a point where I can hand over concept to a pro who can make it even better.

What is the salary range for Data Team Lead (Clinical Data Management)? I am a CDM Professional with YOE 6.4 Years.

I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.


Can anyone help how much will be take home salary ??

Why is it that people become extra preachy and intrusive in Ramadan? One may not fast for health or personal reasons, why do a lot of people consider it their God given duty to inquire and criticize? How hard is it to mind ones own business and focus on their respective imaan? 😑


Any idea folks how many days before joining date Morgan Stanley starts the onboarding process? As in asking for address to send joining rsa key and all.? Thanks.

This is not exactly a confession but I don’t know where to park it and I need to say it out loud. Today is going to be the first day of a whole new life - I’m going to take care of my self mentally and physically, I’m going to let go of relationships that don’t work for it as much as I do. I’m going to focus on the things that really matter - myself, family, and the handful of friends that really show up. Above all, I’m going to believe in myself and not let anyone else crush my soul.

Does anyone know when BCG Unlock / ExperienceBain invites come out? Are they rolling or have a clear timeline?


My bonus this year was patently absurd, so I used a bit on some heat: AMM 3s, Parra Air Max 1, and the black Union 4s. Hate to let the resellers win. But at the same time I worked my ass off and wanted some kicks lmao

When a recruiter contacts you to say “your background is of interest to me” for “a role I have been contracted to fill”, have they actually been specifically contacted by the firm, and maybe should be treated more like a hiring manager who is truly evaluating you? Or are they simply matching you to some posting they can see online and trying to set up a recruiting relationship with you? Fine either way, just want to know.


Good morning! It's Tony coming from HyperDraft HQ in Los Angeles. Looking forward to chatting with folks about leaving Big Law (or surviving it), transitioning in-house, Legal Tech, or any thing and everything about the legal industry.

Quick background, I'm a former Big Law M&A and in-house attorney turned Legal Tech founder. Now I spend my time creating software solving all the painpoints y'all hate.

Drop any questions you have below in the comments. Hope your day is off to a great start!

I am struggling to get candidates for an attorney position in my firm. It is a hearing attorney position (administrative law) in upstate NY. What do I need in the ad to make it more desirable?


Do you all take anything to ease cloudiness in your brain/think smarter? Also have more energy while working? Wondering if there are any vitamins out there....


This may not be the right forum for this question, but what are actual legitimate reasons for wanting the option to buy an AR15 without restrictions? It can't be tradition, hunting, or sport, so what? I'm not being sarcastic, I'm just curious. I live in a bubble where I don't interact with alot of people of different viewpoints, let alone know any gun owners. Is it just because you can?


How do you track your time spent reading and responding to emails? I don’t want to run a timer each time I open outlook, but I feel like I’m losing hours of billable time every day to one-off emails that I would never individually bill for.


Salary and interview check.

Applied to a Tech Transactions Associate position at Greenberg Traurig, looking for 2-6 YOE and stating $190k-$225k comp. in the post. Got a email from HR to set up an hour long initial call.

How many phases are in the interview process?

Is the stated salary in line with their other Tech. Trans. associates? Do they negotiate salaries for laterals?
