Those of you that hate your career as a lawyer, what do you genuinely wish you did instead?

Is there anyone who has actually seen a tangible benefit in your private practice or inhouse careers with an LLM? I see some lawyers in practice with this and I'm contemplating taking an LLM. But how does it actually translate to a career advantage?

LLM only needed for academia.
Practice only need to be called with a basic law degree

Thanks. But I think everyone knows all of that.

I'm asking about practitioners who consciously chose to pursue an LLM. Did an LLM confer any distinct advantages in your career?

I can only speak about transactional practice areas. Iíve spoken to practitioners. I can tell you that the answer is a resounding no. Much of transactional practice isnít about law anyway, so additional legal knowledge in the form of the LLM isnít going to help you. Transactional practice areas require logic and commercial acumen - your LLB and formal education should have equipped you with the former, and you can pick up the latter with experience in practice.

So, from a transactional practice viewpoint, all the usefulness LLM is an expensive sabbatical. Nothing much more.
