Maybe, we can’t all be as happy as this lawyer. But we shouldn’t give up on finding happiness in our profession and this week, a couple of bloggers have some suggestions on how to make that happen. First up, Dave Swanner offers a post, Do You Enjoy Practicing Law? where he gives som ideas on how you might change what you don’t like about your practice. He suggests reducing the number of cases you handle, working towards making more money or changing the kinds of cases you typically handle. Perhaps all easier said than done, but the point is that you ought to try those approaches before junking your career.
Greatest American Lawyer also has this advice that biglaw attorneys might consider to lift that spirit: Stand out from other firms, don’t be a lawyer. “Blow off that mega firm. Jump out of that partnership.”
Do any of these work for you?
