Yes, you read that right
If you manage to crack the code, you can live your best life as a BigLaw attorney. Yes, you read that right—best life. And we don’t mean that you can afford to take distracted bites from a 3 Michelin Star steak with stressed out co-workers as new e-mails load at regular intervals throughout dinner. We mean care-free dinners with friends where everyone is laughing so hard that you forget to check your phone all night. We mean uninterrupted time to do the things you love with the people you love. We mean the ability to live life on your own terms, according to your own values.
Sound impossible? It’s not! But it’s not easy either. It took us many years (and tears!) to get there, but we can now confidently say that best-life living in BigLaw is, indeed, not a mirage but an actual life trajectory you can design. We recently summarized our best advice on how to pursue, and achieve, an epic quality of life while working in BigLaw for a guest post for The BigLaw Investor. Check it out and let us know what you think.
