A reader reached out to me with the following request:
I am a lawyer by training but returned to school and am currently a graduate student at the London School of Economics working on a project looking at how lawyers feel about their work. I was wondering if it might be possible to post a blurb with a link to a survey about how lawyers feel about their work on your blog?
Much of the literature examining how lawyers feel about their work has been essentially lawyers writing about their work using anecdotes sometimes mixed with surveys that are generally not nuanced enough to go beyond identifying broad themes. To hopefully address this, my survey looks at different psychological drivers that contribute to how one feels about their work. By unpacking these drivers, I believe constructive suggestions can be offered to improve the lawyer work experience.
