In theory it can be anything; in practice, it’s discovery and motion practice - I switched after three years to l&e, so much happier! You still get the motion practice but the facts are so much more interesting and it moves faster usually

I am applying to a firm that mostly does subpoena work in the realm of commercial lit. Not something I've heard of before. It's basically a lot of non party work where they rep clients who get subpoenaed. Anyone ever done this?

Okay thank you all that is what I thought. This is helpful

I don’t understand what the attention on my skin color is about… does anyone understand this? It’s hard not letting this bother me

I also have one client where we could really use some more bodies on the file. More in comments.

Currently lying in bed sick with dread about going to work tomorrow. I have had such a heavy weight of anxiety on me lately. I realized that it was because the partners I work for do not give me any type of encouragement and are not afraid to be blunt and pick apart every legal argument I make, leaving me with no confidence. I am all for constructive feedback and criticism — I know what the legal profession expects — but my job makes me feel so stupid.
