Agreed. I achieved high results in my law degree as well, and I could think of nothing worse than working in a city firm - I'm much more happy pursuing legal academia than I ever would be working in a city firm. Even if I did pursue a practicing law career, it would be in an incredibly low paying area such as human rights or a public defender.(Original post by infairverona)
I got a 2.1 in my law degree and I can't think of much worse than being a city commercial lawyer. Yeah the money is good but I would quite like a social life and not to be in the office for stupid hours either. My friend is doing her TC in the city and she's never out of the office before 9pm - no thanks!
The poster to which we're responding seems to think that people only go into law for the money, which is false. I know plenty of people, myself included, who are incredibly passionate about law and could not care less about how much money we make.
