    Just out of interest, which of these two is less stressful if you are working for the top companies in each field respectively? Does either have a greater job satisfaction than the other?

    Indeed! (I want to be a teacher )

    Both are very stressful jobs...you can't really distinguish, and the job satisfaction depends on yourself, do you crave success? do you like helping others?

    indeed, for job satisfaction only you can answer that question

    however, neither of these rank very well by most peoples' job satisfaction criteria

    also, both jobs are very different, so you should really know which you'd rather go for if you are ranking by job satisfaction!

    wouldn't like to be a lawyer though - not only is it stressful, but you'd have to look after dodgy people, or worse than that, at times

    I'd think being an investment banker for a top ("bulge bracket") organisation would be a lot more stressful than being a solicitor for a top ("magic circle") firm, particularly since the degree of volatility and uncertainty is greater in the former field, and the cost of putting a foot wrong is typically higher.

    In his defence, the term lawyer refers to anyone with expert knowledge in the field of law. As such, it includes both barristers, solicitors, judges and academics. Some go so far as to argue that it includes law students. To say that one may be a lawyer working for a law firm is perfectly acceptable.

    EDIT: If one were to be a stickler on this, the words yiu, wrining, england and proffesion are all either spelt incorrectly or are grammatically incorrect. A pedantic point, I know, but so was yours.

    I concur.

    the feeling of being supported is great! And yes as you said, 'lawyer' is a generalisation of legal academics or barristers or solicitors. In fact, I think that is the case for most countries because, for example, in America solicitors are not called lawyers, but advocates
