They both are different. Psychiatrist prescribes medication while psychologist provides therapy and/or counselling. Usually you need to see both for an effective treatment. I went to private before and the doctor that I saw is the most unempathetic and judgemental doctor ever. My mistake for not choosing a doctor properly. And plus private is very expensive and they only care about money cause more patients = more money I guess (like a business) unlike the government sector you are paid a fixed monthly salary despite the number of patients you see (high or low).

What I dont like is the factfinding and the emotional aspect. Hate it when clients cannot be contacted or treat me as their therapist, smlj also tell me.

Every week take on one PG and miti, flat fee of 3k (if the one charge only kind one), ez 12k per month alr. Minus overheads etc (or if you WFH), ~10k per month. Same for fam work if simplified uncontested. Draft a few wills here and there got pocket money to buy mlbb skin lmao
Good insights! Not bad at all.

From my experience in community law, criminal law is interesting as every case has its own set of unique facts and it feels rewarding when your client receives a lighter custodial sentence or a fine.

However, I dislike contentious divorces with a passion. The legal work itself is alright but clients drain you emotionally. Immeasurable amount of times I nearly lost my temper providing advice to them and reminding them that it is not about "punishing" the other side. Of course, uncontentious divorces are much more pleasant to handle and it's relatively easy money.

I have done PIMA/NIMA cases in my previous firm and that is an area of law I vowed not to be involved again.

So rare to see people talk about PIMA NIMA! One of the forgotten areas of law that nobody in law school thinks they will ever (have the misfortune to) do. Any chance for Defendant-side PIMA NIMA lawyers to move onto bigger things, like high value Gen Insurance and Re-Insurance work? Or do most of them get stuck doing low level motor claims?

Just had a thought with my evening reading:

s://.gibsondunn.com/lawyer/doran-kenneth-m/ - Gibson Dunn's Managing Partner: University of Southern California

s://.lawgazette.co.uk/people/wills-power/5070538.article - Freshfields London Regional Managing Partner - University of Liverpool

s://.linklaters.com/en/find-a-lawyer/aedamar-comiskey - Linklaters future Senior Partner - University College Dublin

Maybe HR is snobbish about universities as a way to sift CVs but they're not at all related to work once you start practising...
