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

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.

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.

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

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