was referring to OPs mention of starting salaries and amount of effort needed to get a decent job (Ďwhy study lawí) not talking about life as a lawyer.

that said if we are talking about jobs then lots of high paying careers (tech, healthcare) have long working hours and little sleep also. friend in CS in a bank works 12 hours a day and has to work on Sat also. so i wouldnít say law is great but also not terrible compared to other jobs

iím in tech and everyone in school seems miserable ... but ymmv i guess

the most lucrative in-house opps these days lie in large tech companies, but they typically recruit only intl firm lawyers

What's the WFH arrangement for big 4 and other mid size firms now that restrictions have been eased?

Still same. I don't think 75% allows a practical split. It means 1/4 of the employees have to work from home

M&A will always be in-demand. For capital markets work, it really depends on the jurisdiction - SG IPOs are dead, for example. Restructuring are fine too. Funds is an up and coming practice area.

In terms of relevance to in-house roles, Iíd say general corporate, M&A and even some capital markets experience will be useful.

WFH is still default for the big and mid sized firms, barring skeletal staff presence. Afaik, only the seccys and office managers are in office for admin work and accepting documents.
