Anyone that’s done universal florIda with a toddler? Our LO is 20mo and I’m a huge fan of the park! I wanna do it again as an escape from this madness called work!
But not sure how it’ll work out-he’s super active and a pain for even a day at the mall, let alone a theme park!
Any advice for a nervous FTM?

Can I use fruit candy as a pre-workout and on-foot refueling source for ultra running? I get the same boost of energy with a handful of Mike & Ikes as I do on a Gu gel, but it's a lot more affordable to use candy than a Power Gel, and the flavor is a lot more palatable in my opinion. My stomach prefers this approach too. Am I missing race-critical nutrients by doing this, or is it essentially similar with other gel fuels? Thoughts?

If a partner puts both his and the associate name on a pleading without associate having worked on it or knowing about the said pleading, and the firm gets sanctioned (say rule 11 for instance), does it mean that the associate is one of the sanctioned attorneys? Like it affects the associate’s later pro hac vice or insurance applications where it asks whether associate has been sanctioned?
Have you ever asked your firm if you could transfer offices for personal reasons (eg to be closer to family)? What was their response? Any advice?
Good morning - tips on dealing with the “know it all client.” I represent an entity and one individual thinks they understand all legal issues simply because of news articles or friends stories. I try to redirect conversation by focusing on unique facts at issue but other techniques would be helpful.
Noticed a typo in a cover letter I sent out after the fact. The worst feeling, can anyone relate? Chances they will not notice?
How would you handle salary negotiation?
Class of 21. Took a job at a small general service firm in a tertiary market ~6mos ago because I wanted hands-on experience quickly. Compensation is ~$60k, which felt a little low but considering the low COL and the fact that I hadn't even been admitted to the bar yet, not bad.
How/when should I negotiate for an increase in compensation? My instinct is to ask for a salary bump to $80k around the one year mark.
I enjoy the firm and the work.
Through a recruiter in early March I interviewed for a lateral position with a peer firm. I thought the interview went well and wrote thank you cards to everyone after the interview. (More below)
Not a Q but I'm worried that I annoyed the partner today. I asked him A LOT of questions cuz I'm a first year and don't want to screw up. I know I should group my questions so I don't keep going to him but what if the questions pop up cuz it pertains to new things that come up later? I can't really ask them all at the same time. I told him at the end of the day that I hope I didn't bombard him too badly and he just laughed and said it's okay. He's so nice I can't really tell if he meant it.
Are there any other firms that offer positions like Littler’s casesmart attorneys that hires laterals?
What’s a practical gift for someone starting law school? Any suggestions are much appreciated!
Anyone ever experience a firm significantly misrepresenting a position they hired you for? I recently took a position with a firm to practice a specific type of litigation. Turns out the firm only has about 5 cases in that field and they are all already staffed up. Now I’m stuck at a firm I barely like doing work that’s completely irrelevant to my experience and career goals, and I feel like leaving within a year is a bad look resume wise
Can someone recommend the opportunities in law other than practicing (after passing bar) or support staff (not inclined to do). I have worked as a corporate lawyer oversees and working in environmental compliance for three years now in the US. I need some guidance how I can make a move. Would really appreciate some thoughts.
Thoughts on leaving a job due to poor management and communication? What level of oversight is normal in midlaw boutique litigation firms? I am a 4th year and starting to feel like I get zero feedback unless it's bad and am just left alone most of the time unless I harass the partner for some input. Then once he pays attention it's just beratement for not doing things the same way he would have. I need more experience with a partner who is present and available, am I being unreasonable?
Just started at new firm. One of the partners insists that every motion and memorandum submitted to judge also be submitted with printed copies of all cited materials. Was this ever common practice or is this person just crazy
Anyone have any stories where you thought you failed the bar exam but ended up passing? I’m a retaker anxiously waiting dc bar results. They’re out tomorrow.
Maybe it’s the pandemic, maybe its the lack of social interaction, and inability to go out on the weekend. But lately I’ve been having tons of anxiety.
The firm is great. I’m being paid above market rate, no cut (yet), still have my perks, but these emails I get from one of the managing partners gives me anxiety. To be fair, I’m probably overreacting. But when I get emails like I’m disappointed, I have to rewrite this, oh this is wrong w this. I get super anxious and annoyed
This may be just a naive/dumb question, but how do you relax when you’ve got a really stressful file? I’m a junior and I’ve been putting in ~10ish billable hours a day recently, which is more than I’m used to. The evenings (post-8pm) are generally my time to decompress - read a book, watch dumb tv, whatever - but it’s been all work lately until 10 or 11pm and I struggle to go straight from work to bed. Any insight on what everyone else does?
Just realize I screwed up some research and came to the wrong result for a client, which the partner provided to the client as well. It became inconsequential because the client found something else more legitimate to make the same decision we advised him on, but I’m doing additional research on a similar issue and found statutory language to support a different outcome than what I had originally thought. I’m not sure whether to just let it go or talk to the partner about the additional
I’ve had a rough day today and it’s not even noon on a Sunday. This is one hell of a profession.
