Oof lmao.

Am the guy who responded to him above. I don't have anything against anyone who sells insurance, what pisses me off about the guy is the way he talked about the people in this forum like he's better than them for having quit law

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 am not trying to discourage lawyers or law grads here. Perhaps I should have been more clear. I am trying to say that there are other options out there (and personally I would think financial consultancy is a good option here, tried and tested before). Since the market is looking gloomy, perhaps it is a good time to explore other opportunities. For myself, I am glad to have made the decision to step out of law to save the hassle and now I have not regretted a single bit.

Thank you for sharing.
We are glad that you are happy with the choice you've made.

I think most of us understand that the world is bigger than law. Many of us stay not because we don't have options (as you've rightly pointed out, many of us do) but because we believe in what we do (just as you believe in what you do).

And i am speaking to those people - do not give up on law because of a few set backs (or because you get to earn a lot of instant money). Keep trying. Things will get better.

If you go UK, unless it is Oxford or Cambridge or LSE or UCL, wouldn't be worth it.
How about KCL?

Yes. So many trolls trying to instigate local vs foreign grad arguments.
Nobody cares after a few years of practice. REALLY, nobody cares.

Agreed. After a few years in practice itís just all about surviving the hours and sh*t.
