I'm fairly sure they don't want to know the results.

From what I've heard (anecdotal) as long as your work is good and your exceeding your req billable hours, you could prob start smoke crack during a meeting and someone would just politely ask you to put it away. However, they probably won't make you partner.



That being said, uppers only brah.

While I've never heard of law firms drug testing, I have heard of corporations drug testing lawyers headed there for inhouse gigs.

Can confirm. currently summering in-house at a major company. I had to take a urine drug test and they did a full background check.
