When I hear the fact pattern — oh I know exactly how to try that case. They are going downnnn

When I am writing a brief/memo in the aforementioned fact pattern — god grant me the serenity to accept the things idk 😭 and the courage to change the law if I can and the wisdom to know the difference

I so much wish I could just try cases instead of the briefs and motions. I find it so damn boring, but trial sounds so thrilling when you believe in your client


LMAO this is actually so funny.

If someone emails you and asks you go let them know if you have a bar license in X state, do you respond if you don’t? I felt rude not responding so I said I don’t, and then the person snidely commented that I didn’t have to respond then. Initial email was only directed to me.

Mid-Level here. Giving notice and transitioning matters. Partner is demanding that I take a pro bono matter I have been staffed on to the new firm. Partner says I will be burning bridges, ruining relationships, and violating my ethical obligations if I don’t take “my” client with me. I didn’t bring the client in, just answered the firm’s call for assistance. Partner has indicated he will call my new firm and make demands. Has this ever happened to any of you associates? Advice?

I don’t work THAT much (1800h/year is my target), my weeks are usually 10-11 h m-f.

However, I’m still feeling overwhelmed and close to burnout, and I’m quite ashamed of it when other associates hit close to 3000h.

It’s not the hours, it’s the extreme perfectionism and level of detail expected that makes me hyper stressed when working, all the office politics and working for partners responsible for more they can handle and need explaining like kids, but take all the $ at the end of the day 🙄

Does anyone else suffer from chronic procrastination and boredom / inattentiveness? I can focus on any work related task for only 15-30 minutes until i reach for my phone/any other distraction, except when I have an urgent deadline and then I can magically focus for a couple hours at a stretch. I never had this problem in school! How do I fix this, ideally without medication? Feeling so lost…

Hello. I just came here to announce that I am officially done. Burnt out. I used to be a vibrant kid who wanted to have a fulfilling career and I have dedicated 29 years to that endeavor. But now I am done. I just want to work 9-5 to make enough money to live comfortably. But I don’t want excessive job stress, I don’t care about upward mobility or promotion, and I don’t even need to enjoy the work. I just want to live. I want to make up for all the time I lost. Anyone else feel this way?


Mid level has an assignment for month plus. Asks for some help, which I send on time. Weeks go by. Mid level gives me the assignment last minute, (sort of -says we’ll collaborate and then basically ghosts) and I have to send what is arguably bad work product to the partner bc of time constraints, which arguably should never have been an issue had the ML done their job. When I receive the inevitable feedback that the work product isn’t up to snuff, do I tell the partner what happened?
