  • Unexciting news

    This must be one of the most unexciting, self promoting surveys by a recruitment agency yet.

    One third of lawyers wouldn't want their kids to become lawyers? Presumably another one third would encourage their kids to become lawyers, and the remaining one third couldn't be bothered either way.

    I couldn't be bothered to read the rest of the article to find out.

    The survey is meaningless unless you ask parents outside law whether their children should follow them into their respective non-law careers.

    I think this is very worrying for prospecive university law students, as it could reflect how I and others will feel in the future.

  • So what

    I completely agree with the comment below. I imagine that one third of general business managers would not want their children to follow their career paths, one third of marketing professionals, one third of accountants (well actually, that figure would probably be higher!) and one third of doctors...is does not mean that these respective careers are being unhappily led, simply that the grass may be greener on the other side. Is it really? Not too sure.

  • Don't agree

    I think the last two posters have been a bit harsh: yes, the remaining two third of lawyers might still want their kids to enter the law, but if even one in three lawyers would actively discourage their kids from entering the profession, surely that means that morale is at rock bottom among a third of us? That's quite a lot.
