The majority of legal professionals claim to be fatigued with the long-hours culture, according to research by recruitment and HR consultancy Hudson.
More than 2,500 employees from organisations across the UK were surveyed about their attitudes to the workplace. More than 100 were from the legal profession.
More than a quarter of legal employees expressed concern that the law’s long-hours culture was acting as a major deterrent for potential recruits to the profession, as well as encouraging those within it to consider their exits.
Almost three out of five believed that working long hours – more than 10 hours a day and some weekends – is unacceptable, with 55 per cent saying the profession lagged behind other industries in the adoption of a healthier approach to work-life balance.
