Re: Long Hours

is 1500 billable hours requirement a lot or not a lot? (NOT biglaw) I'm switching to private practice and that's my firm's requirement. It seems... manageable? Ymmv, but I switched to a place with no real requirement, with most in the group hitting around 1800. It is exceedingly manageable to be ev...

It was genuine. Usually when I ask someone I any forum I rarely get an answer let alone, many.
Apologies for my skepticism then! Glad you were able to get useful information. :)

Re: Long Hours

Wow, all of this feedback is amazing everyone. Thank you. I did not expect this amount of responses with all of this great insight. Thank you all so much. Do I sense a shade of sarcasm?

Being able to squeeze in a nap or peloton ride during a slow hour definitely makes getting a random email late in the evening more bearable.
Working out in free hours during the day as opposed to at 6:30 in the am is game changer for me.

Re: How Screwed Am I?

It would help to know if you have a specific type of clerkship you are looking for, and how long out you're willing to look. Story gave some good advice, but certain of it is more applicable depending on where you want to land.

Any sure thing easy A's I should be looking at to finish off 3LOLing without totally tanking the GPA? Slight reverse to this, but DON'T just take seminars heedlessly. Talk to people who have taken those specific ones before, cause some professors get way too intense about them. That said, find some...

Re: Pro Bono work in Biglaw

Definitely look for opportunities for smaller matters where you are the sole attorney. It is terrifying, but gives you a heck of a lot more immediate, on the ground experience as a first or second year attorney. As UVA said, talk to your pro bono coordinator. Also talk to those a year or two above y...

OP here. How many of you had work over Thanksgiving, and how much? I barely have any and I'm concerned if I'm just not working hard enough? Not a stub year, and billed exactly zero hours from Thursday-Sunday. Don't overthink things like that too much. Just because some people get absolutely crushed...

Willkie was posted here 5 minutes earlier. The person saying "Screen shot or it didn't happen" was the one being called troll. I think.

Watch the 200k raise come from some dark horse firm like Skadden or Cleary. I mean 190k came from Milbank.

I feel like if you're at a v50 (or most of the others that went to 180) unless it's notoriously stingy or you're in a secondary market it's a done deal? Why y'all tripping
Because it's not a done deal until we get our money.
