Comments from the Head of Information at mental health charity, Mind, on navigating the new stresses and struggles of working from home during the pandemic.
Is flexible working the answer to stress in the legal profession?
“Some love the corporate environment: the after-work beers, the client dinners, the sense of belonging. “I hated that,” says Jack Celand, who trained at a top 10 UK law firm. “I couldn’t wait to get home after work. My body
felt ruined from all the stress and strong coffee.”
Others agree. “There’s talk of burnout but people stick with it because it’s a long process getting the job,” says 28-year-old lawyer Olivia Smith.
