SA Blog?

Postby MPMP » Fri May 07, 2010 4:45 pm

Does anyone know of a Biglaw Summer Associate who is blogging on what things are like on a day to day basis? That would be pretty sweet.

It would undoubtedly be interesting to read, but I don't think anyone (so far) has been stupid enough to think they could do it without serious potential for career disaster

A little bit (okay, a lot) different from what you are asking, but if you are interested in an SA blog, you would probably enjoy the book Anonymous Lawyer by Jeremy Blachman. Very insightful and funny fiction book which is written in the guise of a big law partner sending e-mails and writing blogs about his daily life.

See, e.g., "Mr. Chuck" from Mayer Brown. My suggestion: hand in quality, polished work; attend social events; meet deadlines; dress reasonably; don't be an ass; show some initiative. Other than those things, keep your head down and stay out of the limelight.

That's not really what he was asking.

P.S.S. I finally figured out which male summer was crushing on the female summer. How did I do it? Through my amazing powers of deduction. And my eyes... I saw the other male summer with another girl.
good shit
