In today’s BT: “A female lawyer who worked under a senior counsel in major law firm said the partner often “bragged” about working even while in labour……..Why is the Law Society surprised when junior lawyers quit when managers like that get appointed senior counsel?”


Apart from the bad typo from a national newspaper, quite a damming indictment from a former associate, though it’s hard to understand her lament. Why would the former associate think this act somehow should militate her ‘manager’ from being considered senior counsel? One should certainly be encouraged to advocate work life balance but that’s not and should never be a criterion to be senior counsel or to reach the top levels of the legal profession in any specialization other than litigation.

Read the article. Quite honestly, even if true, the account of the associate tells me much more about the work ethics and lack of discretion of the associate than the partner in question. The lack of discretion is by the associate is especially appalling as there are only so many individuals fitting the partner’s profile. BT should know better than to be publishing this sort of unverified drivel anonymously.

Agreed. The working while in labour anecdote is a personal decision of the female partner. It is inappropriate to co-opt it as an example of "toxicity".

I have also personally heard accounts of female lawyers working until very advanced in their term. But that is their choice.

If the "associate" wished to make a point about how females may be pressurized to perform to the same level as males, and may be disadvantaged by maternity commitments, this is actually a separate conversation, and in any case could've been worded much better than it was.

It doesn't seem like something said SC would not say anyway

Random question out of curiosity - should one be a litigator (whether in private practice or in the government) to become a SC? I hardly see any corporate lawyers become SC

I think being an SC is a litigation thing. But I have another question. just how much do litigators aspire to be senior counsel? It seems like something so many talk about on this group. How prestigious exactly is it? So more or less wanted than say being ranked as pointed out in the last two pages of this forum.

UK based law student interested in advocacy and wondering if I should stay on and apply for pupillage at a barristers Chambers here or come back to Singapore to do litigation and arbitration.

As one who hopes to go far and willing to work hard, one question I have is where I can reach the highest levels. How does one make a comparison between QC appointments and SC appointments? Are they different in any way? Which would statistically be harder to get if I’m willing to work hard for decades and push myself as an advocate? As an Asian kid, would I be at a disadvantage if I want to be considered for QC in the UK?

I know I’m dreaming but as a law student doing relatively decently in a very good UK school, one should have ambitions and reach for the stars =]
