Level of Stress


"Stress is usually related to needing someone outside your team to get something to you on time. Unexpected late finishes can make it difficult to have plans. Overall, though, I've had good support and haven't had ridiculous hours."

"You are expected to get things done, but the support is there."
Second year trainee, Paris
"I am in a relatively quiet department and am rarely rushed off my feet or working late. Sometimes it is stressful because the subject matter is tricky, but people are willing to help. I can't imagine anyone getting too angry if you got something wrong."
First year trainee, London
"Working in any City law firm brings with it a degree of stress. It's a demanding job."
First year trainee, London
