Homeownership is amazing until you accidentally break a pipe under your sink the night before you leave for a trip, or you realize your sewer line keeps backing up because there's tree roots in your pipes. https://t.co/ZhsWMF6UBA

What if I told you that buying a house can be great but is also a major commitment with some significant risks, and could ultimately be less financially and physically liberating than just renting

NEW from me: Davis Polk & Wardwell has upped the stakes in the brewing associate compensation race, announcing on Friday that it is increasing starting salaries for first-year associates to $202,500. Who is going to jump onboard? https://t.co/3CfinsMx4P

Since then, a couple more law firms have reached out to me to tell me about their Juneteenth plans, including @SchwabeLaw and @VinsonandElkins. I'll update this list on Twitter as I hear from more firms.

At the time my story ran, I listed 34 law firms that told me they were recognizing Juneteenth as a holiday this year, including @crowell_moring, @HoganLovells, @KattenLaw, @NixonPeabodyLLP and more (see screenshot). https://t.co/OaorYo2kvt

Most law firms that recognized Juneteenth last year also committed at the time to do more to combat racial injustice and accelerate their own internal diversity efforts. When I talked to firm leaders this year, they again stressed that recognizing Juneteenth was just one step.

As you probably know, the date marks the moment the last U.S. slaves were freed by a Union general in Galveston, Texas, in 1865.

Earlier this month, I wrote about how the celebration of Juneteenth (June 19) as a permanent holiday/paid day off was now a standard in the U.S. legal industry, with more than 30 law firms recognizing it as such: https://t.co/yFjkWa2Ets
