But you have to realise this is crunch time. You either sit around and continue looking for firms and get rejected all the way or you look for other opportunities and get out straight. Ideally the scenario which you have provided would be the way. But given the turbulent situation, best is to cut losses out quickly. You will realise that few years down the road it wouldn’t matter whether you quit law now or quit law in two years (and if you are lucky enough you will probably be earning marginally more than your lawyer peers).
