What was supposed to be a summer of relief and a return to some degree of normalcy is winding down into an autumn that more closely resembles the uncertainty of 2020. Parents in Big Law, mostly vaccinated and hoping to return to the office (at least some of the time), are again stressing about child care, in-person school and whether or not it is safe to allow their children, many of whom are ineligible to be vaccinated, to attend. 

They’re grappling with questions of social development, the ability to learn in a remote environment and, in some areas of the country, whether or not schools are safe.
