Can people "anon" post in this thread/forum? Or is this thread just for talking about the TLS thread
Looks like someone scooped me in the mod thread. I don't know why this isn't in the legal employment forum anyway tbh.

How are they It's going to take a long time (like, years and years) for LSL to be the go to site for all the rando midlevel psychopaths who don't really read chatborts but come out of the woodwork during stuff like this and by default go to the site they read sometimes before starting 1L a decade ago

Re: So you think you want BigLaw?

Substantive experience trumps of course, but yeah. And particularly because it seems like you want to lateral before you'd be far enough along to really get much substantive experience.

Yeah, firms in smaller markets are way more likely to say "wow, Cravath!" than they are to say "wow, Morrison Cohen!" Would think that's an obvious point.

Re: So you think you want BigLaw?

Gonna come close to billing double digits on my birthday (a Sunday). Was difficult to squeeze it in while on the trip my SO planned for me, but (thankfully!) we were able to cut it short to get back to town so I can finish up with enough time to get a few hours of sleep before going in tomorrow. Cool!
