He could be from Jersey and named Mike? Besides, as far as chains go Baldinos makes the best Jersey style subs.


What kind of work do you do?

If I remember correctly you started a very informative thread about New Mexico law. Did you end up going to New Mexico? If not, why not? If so, is it how you imagined?

How long have you worked there? Is this a firm with 101+ attorneys? How much money did you have to spend on your wardrobe, and did you have this money before or after you started working there?

Andy,

Thank you for remembering this. Alas, I have not yet realized the New Mexican law dream. I still have not been there. I was too busy going to school, working, and prepping for the bar! Maybe now that I've passed the bar here, I'll do a little studying for NM and take that one. I'll make a mini-vaca out of it. Thoughts?

I've been here since right around graduating law school (about 6 months now). Not a firm-legal dept in a company. I spent $0 on wardrobe. I wear jeans, t-shirt, and vans to work everyday.

Hmm, would you consider it a local, regional, or national company? Does this company do things you were familiar with before you went to law school, perhaps the same industry you have worked at before?

Example, I have worked office and operations in the trucking logistics industry. There are two companies I have worked for which I would be happy to work in their legal department. Is it something like that?

yes-i'd safely say everyone here is familiar with this company. i've worked at 3 different companies for the legal department. one was very small (3 people including me), one was mid-sized (about 20 lawyers/paralegals), and this one is huge (100s of lawyers). they all involve pretty much the same work/skill set. i definitely think it's possible to start small and work your way up in in-house transactional/corporate law.

People, this is an on-topic thread. If you want to ask non-law questions that's fine, but it'll move this to the lounge.

Why do people say "Big Law" but "large company" (as in, "I worked in Big Law but now a large company") and why did you say "big company?"
