Your input is welcome, and fair enough. Perhaps it's better than law for you.

But clearly you came here not out of a desire to share (assuming you're even being honest about your salary and story), but to **** over the lawyers / law students in this forum.

Personally, at 2 PQE I was earning more than you are right now. The hours are long, but it's intellectually satisfying and I work with very creative and intelligent people. For all the to-be lawyers reading this, law work can be very satisfying -> do your homework and find the firm/team which will make work rewarding for you.

i'm inclined to believe this ^.
Honestly, i think many NQs who have not been retained will have trouble finding jobs.

If a legal exec position is offered, i'd say take first .... especially if you are determined to stay in legal. Once things get better, firms will start hiring again.

I honestly think there will be some hiring once all the covid-19 relief measures die down.

I am the OP regarding the financial consultant role. You can try applying.

I would imagine that the 'C' firm is in the same position as yours.

I believe there's discrimination towards Aus universities by law firms, more so than against UK universities. So there will likely be a disadvantage.

I love talking to clients from the beginning and I know law is going to shut me out for at least a few years. Now I get to manage my own portfolio and the salary is awesome. When I visit this page and look at all you struggling, it just reaffirmed that my decision to quit was right from the very beginning.
congrats bro

look forward to hearing abt you entering the million dollar round table

I'd imagine most small-med size firms would be in the same position.
