I think before she retires you have to best her in combat - then you get her powers (files) and are deemed Partnor! Good luck and may the Gods be on your side!
... or maybe you should do what the others said. Although, there is nothing wrong with getting extremely versed in the area of law you are working in. If it is a profitable practice area, you know all of the clients (if you don't push this partner for more contact), you know the law, you like the area- you may have what is called a "partner track". Of course this depends on a great many things firm size, tradition etc. etc.
Having a what's my future look like discussion with this partner. If her timeline is 5 years- you may be in a very good spot. If it is next year - maybe less so.
I haven't had an LSAT request from them yet, do you think it's because I indicated I am retaking in January? I doubt they will get to my app before the Jan scores are released anyways, since I applied mid-December, but I am kind of dying to hear from them 🥺
Ok. That is some very good advice and I am so glad you answered. It is most helpful as any information from any one who has a better understanding of my new career environment. It helps me put a framework on my scopes and bottles the ends in a way.
I joined the Paralegal Association of Ontario and they have quite a bit of information to sift through as does the paralegal society of Canada. Career in motion. Thank you.
Anyone else feel free to add as more info is good info.
