  • Really!!!

    I find this hard to belive. A friend of mine who is a psychiatrist in London tells me that the amount of lawyers who are his patients is totally disproprortionate to any other profession. I say buy shares in the Priory during the economic down turn. Sounds like the only sane investment right now.

  • I also find this hard to believe....

    Exactly WHICH lawyers are they talking to? In my 7yrs PQE experience of private practice, a "happy lawyer" is one that is hard to find (unless you're a partner of course... and even then "happiness" is not necessarily a given).

  • is this meant to be a joke?

    Long hours, unrealistic billing targets, more work, and then even more, = happiness?

  • Total agreement

    Why wouldn't lawyers be happy? Sure the work is tough, long, and stressful. But looking at the benefits, you're earning at top end of the ladder, your job is relatively secure (when compared with say the financial services industry), your work may see you have to delve into matters you had never even conceived of before...all the while keeping your life interesting.

    There are few jobs today where you can make a lot of money by putting in a little effort. Everyone needs to work hard but I find that working as a lawyer seems quite idyllic.

    Someone is clearly delusional in all this. There is no such thing as a Happy Lawyer!
