Any lawyer who has a job has to be happy. The legal sector has become binary: Those with jobs, those without jobs. Therefore, it was no surprise that THE AMERICAN LAWYER survey found associates the happiest they have been in a long time.
After all, the survey was among JDs who were employed, not the suicidal broke angst-ridden about student loans Millennial sitting in Starbucks contemplating the void. Any survey among the latter will, I have a hunch, find that they are not happy.
