With all the stress in my personal life, I don’t know how I’m going to be able to focus enough to pass this bar exam
Every single weekday I work from 9 something a.m. to 8 something p.m. or later, with one lunch hour in between…and work some more on weekends…Some colleagues worked until 11 p.m. recently…Ah…No one except partners has rights in law firms that aren’t small…

There is honestly nothing that annoys me more at work than people who put two spaces after a full stop and I have to go back and correct everything. This has not been correct word processing etiquette since we stopped using typewriters please stop.
Holy fuck so the other day an attorney appearing before a 3-judge panel of the 9th Circuit mixed up his case files and gave a three minute opening to the completely wrong case. On the one hand, at least I will probably never screw up this bad, but on the other hand I'm pretty sure I have a new work-related stress dream to enjoy.
so anyway i passed mootcourt with an 80% (real fricking good)
even though my judge compared me to an agressive sprinter train (insert thomas gifs here), i still passed
yeehaw bitches lets go
A lot of people say they hate crime and criminals. They want harsher penalties. They complain when they hear that someone they believe is guilty gets acquitted. They want to blame the Judge, prosecutors, defense attorneys, or the police for the lack of "justice", but when they're a witness or victim in a case they don't want to testify. They want anyone but themselves to testify, even trying to ask if someone else can testify to what they saw or said. News flash: you're part of the problem.
The first time LinkedIn actually provides quality content.
So I used to wonder how it is that attorneys could force themselves to read page after page of extremely boring documents while staying focused the whole time in order to find very specific pieces of information, and it turns out that it's actually pretty easy to do when you're powered by sheer spite! If someone is going to obstruct things for my client and the only way to remove that obstruction is to dig through a huge pile of papers until I find what I am looking for, then I am going to dig through those papers and I am going to find what I am looking for, if for no other reason than to imagine the look on their face when they realize that they have to do the thing I want them to do whether they like it or not.
You ever complete a 5 year degree and then immediately think about doing another 5 year degree?
my workplace uses this patent database system and their tag line is “serving the intellectual property community since 1968” and I swear I feel like their software hasn’t been updated since 1968.

The Barbri lawyer dad jokes and LMFET14s memes are all I have left during this trying time.
Today is what sticky Philadelphia summers are made of. I stayed up late last night and was wide awake. I’m meeting l for coffee and s for dinner tonight. We’re all vaccinated and these are still outdoor activities, but it’s weird socializing so much. But good, obviously. I’ve missed my people.

Tomorrow is a public holiday *takes a long drag on a cigarette and exhales a cloud of smoke and mournfulness* But it appears that I am not a member of the public because I’ll still have to work. Without pay.
so I am considering resigning from my current job because I get treated very differently from my male colleague and whenever I make a mistake it’s the end of the world and I get physically shouted at. I have to do 24 months of this to get admitted as an attorney and I just don’t know if I can allow this treatment for another 19 months. I am so undecided as to whether I should just stick it out or go. ugh.
I was also threatened with retrenchment over a very minor mistake :/ idk, everything always depends on the mood of management and if the mood isn’t great we all suffer. I get great experience where I work but is it worth the damage mental health?
People really think that all lawyers do is scream.
No bruh! We speak in front of a judge. We have to respect them or else the contempt case is just a signature away.
After 3+ years spent handling litigated cases of deaths, suicide attempts, sexual assaults, fires, floods, terrorism, etc., please think carefully before asking me for your stupid sales contract letter “as a matter of urgency.” Say hello to the bottom of the pile darling.
