What field of law is least stressful?
« on: July 04, 2006, 01:42:11 AM »
I'm guessing corp law is the most stressful and i would think that real estate law is the least.  is this correct? what other types of law are low stress?

As long as there exists the concept of malpractice, I'd say "none of the above."

But I'd go for commercial real estate over individual.

Maybe working for state is less stressful since you don't have these killing billable hours

I know working for the government in criminal law, either as a DA or PD is not as stressful, as corp law.  A great deal of people actually enjoy it.  The hours are a lot better (you're only going to work at the most 60 hours usually more like 40-45).  However the pay is low.
