I am toying with two different personal statement concepts and could use some advice on which is better. Anyone willing to read both of them and let me know what you think?
Are you in school trying to get a clerkship or applying to school and working on your personal statement? It can’t be both.

If you're looking to get into employer side labor/employment law: go to hell you rat fuck.
First of all 🙄 and second, these are the on-topics. If you want to debate the merits of employer or employee-side L&E, go for it. But do it respectfully and without name calling. Thanks.

Re: Survey of YOUR Block-Billing/Bill-Itemizing Practices

Yeah insurance requires task/phase billing and more details (with lower rates and more cuts to bills 🙄). Private clients still don’t allow block billing but are less annoying about their bills. I generally have to itemize and can barely ever block bill. Both things in the OP are considered block bil...

No, I work at a boutique firm. We have a summer program but still interview 3Ls if we have a need for associates.

Re: Labor & Employment

welcome beep! <3

Saul- like I said above, I do mainly employment and only deal with union issues if they come up in my employment cases. All I can say is labor is a very niche practice and I’m not sure I’d just jump into it without any experience.

Re: tetelestai — cravath to 190 and boneus

Will my L&E boutique move at all? Think Jackson Lewis, Ogletree, etc. In a non-major market, pay varies by market. We did not move at all with the 160 to 180 increase. Hoping to get a small bump with this move. Currently, in my market, starting salary is roughly 125 probs not but we can always hope!
