I'm suspecting I'll have that Monday off because of July 4th. Think I'll have a problem just asking for the week off instead of just going to work on Tuesday and flying out the next morning?
When should I tell the firm, I haven't told the recruiter yet I'll need to leave for my sisters wedding.
Dude. GO TO YOUR SISTERS'S WEDDING! You will hate yourself forever if you don't.
Law firms are shitty horrible places and you don't want to sacrifice an event like that for such a crappy employer.
Also, virtually everyone at the firm will completely understand, barring the odd psycho or 2.
Just be very upfront with everyone at the firm about the dates so no one sets deadlines you can't meet because of it.
No Sr. Associate I know at any firm would be upset at you for doing this. None of the partners I know either. It's your sister's wedding, for Christ's sake.
