What does it mean to be BCC’ed on emails to associate listservs? It’s been happening to me a lot lately by partners/counsel/senior associates.

I bcc people so they can know I sent it without being caught up in all the replies.

Can you give us an example? Sometimes people BCC everyone to mask the identify of everyone that the email was sent to but I’m not sure that’s what’s going on here.

This is common, just how some listservs work. All of the associates on that list are bcced as well. Don’t worry about it.

My firm recently moved me to a new practice area. The partner who I have worked with for quite some time does not have enough work, and she does not want to be in a supervisory, teaching role. The firm moved me without having a real conversation, and the practice areas are like night and day. On one hand, I am extremely grateful to have a job. However, I am afraid that this jump could stunt my career since the new area has few exit opportunities. Any thoughts on how to proceed? Leave my firm?

It’s the holidays & I’ve got time off already scheduled. They’ve made a tempting offer but are not flexible on the time off & seem desperate. Like they want someone to put out fires.

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.
