In my line of work I spend a lot of time talking to lawyers, but mostly at the senior end. So I was interested to attend a recent event focused on the experiences of associates. Many of the concerns voiced at Legal Week‘s inaugural An audience with… Associates event were to be expected, with associates worrying about the pressures of trying to make it while the shadow of recession hangs over the market. Likewise, a profession that doesn’t have quite the same levels of certainty in terms of career track is a daunting prospect for those who feel partnership is harder to attain.
