One thing I will add is that there is an abundance of insurance in-house jobs now, even in light of the pandemic. Seeing as how you are a mid-level Associate and would have a year's worth of in-house experience at an insurance company, I do not think you will have much trouble at all finding another insurance law job either at a firm or in-house department.
This is great advice. I know a few colleagues who did a one-year secondment at a client (after the client approached the firm) and then returned to private practice. Some left for an in-house job (either at the same company or a different one) fairly soon after returning to the firm, but they had that as a safety net.
Excuse me? What would I gain from lying about my friend debating between a school? Why wouldn't I ask the question myself like I have in the past? If you look at my posts, I haven't got into Ryerson so it makes zero sense for me to ask about Ryerson v. Ottawa especially since my acceptance for Ottawa becomes firm today LOL...
What motive would I have?
Just because we share a similar passion in real estate law does not mean that I made up a "friend" for the sole purpose of asking a question that I'm more than comfortable asking myself if I had to. He has suffers from anxiety and I know how rough these forums can get with people assuming things (like what you just did), with that being said, I offered to posted on his behalf and ask around for him as I don't know much about corporate and real estate law with both schools lmao.
