Hahahhahahahahahha. That’s all I need to say in response to the absurd suggestion.
The truth is some academics are better off being in practice.

I find mediation a very risky trade for lawyers to do.
You don’t need to be a lawyer to be a mediator.
So why are lawyers still doing mediation?

Tons of disputes lawyers move in-house every year, even those from small firms. If you don't like disputes, you will quickly figure out that moving in-house is your best bet career-wise, especially if you don't wanna start from ground zero again in corporate.

It goes without saying that the average corp lawyer finds it much easier to move in-house than a litigator. But if you're willing to go for less sexy or prestigious companies and industries and use it as a stepping stone. it's not difficult at all to transit from disputes to in-house.

But what is so unattractive about being a disputes lawyer versus a corp lawyer?

I always see litigation lawyers openings but seldom corp lawyers openings on jobs portal.

This means that liti work is booming, and corp work is drying up!

1. there are lots more disputes than corporate deals happening on a yearly basis. kacang puteh law firms are always doing kacang puteh lawsuits for kacang puteh clients.

even if kacang puteh clients enter into a kacang puteh transaction, they may even choose to forgo a lawyer and copy-and-paste internet precedents cos they think its a straightforward transaction...until sh_t hits the fan...and then they hire kacang puteh litigators to sort out their dispute.

2. the churn is greater in litigation since it is so sh_t.
