Partner material

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Sep 28, 2010 12:05 am

We have heard of stories whereby senior level attorneys/partners are able to detect associates who are partner material. They nurture them to resume leadership positions in the law firm.

What is partner material?

You should probably put an ice-pack on your face in the morning so your eyes don't get puffy.

I swear that the next person to make a dumb post is going to get a hot load of common sense all over their face.

They've been warned.

I don't know which comment is better - this one, or the ode to NY Yankee (BORN and BRED, what what) two comments up.

Yours is the dumb post we've been awaiting. I suggest you wipe that hot load off your face.

If you're in biglaw and not working right now, you're not partner material. So stop worrying about it. If you're not even in biglaw yet and you're worrying about making partner, SHUT THE FUCK UP.
