Dumb question but I have a callback interview coming up for a privacy litigation position. I’m in the process of getting CIPP/US certified and want to make sure I pronounce it right. Do people refer to it as “Kip” “Sip” or just “C.I.P.P.”?
So as a 30ish yo with a government/PE/tech background and CIPM/CIPP… I’m finding privacy work is just much easier and interesting than other kinds, but still pays plenty well.
Is it too late/inadvisable to go to law school to specifically aim for privacy work?
I just find some firms are unwilling to entertain the idea that anyone but a lawyer has anything relevant to contribute in this space…

I am a 10 yr lawyer. 7 yrs in my practice area. Little over a year at current firm. Still an associate. Im at large plaintiff firm w/ billable requirements. I do mass/class cases and hold a couple leadership positions (these were competitive to get). What should salary be and when should I make partner. I’ll add I work remote and pretty autonomously. Little contact with partners or anyone at my firm.
I put sad music and just cried all day. I don’t know if it’s stress, loneliness, or just general anxiety. I feel overwhelming emotion that is reminiscent of my teenage angst. I don’t get it.
