U.K. Lawyers Are Happy Chappies
While lawyers in the United States and Australia rank most depressed in comparison with other professionals, over in the United Kingdom, lawyers are "very happy." According to this article,
Lawyers are the happiest chappies in the UK (5/18/07; hat tip to BLT), lawyers are the happiest professionals in the United Kingdom, with two thirds of lawyers describing themselves as "very happy" in their jobs.
The article doesn't offer much explanation for the survey's results, especially in light of criticism even in the United Kingdom of hard-driving law firm culture. But it does identify the particular group of lawyers who've achieved the very pinnacle of happiness:
Gemini women lawyers working in Bristol for a female boss, who travel to work by car and that are allowed to wear casual business clothes.
