Not Just Lawyers
It's not just young lawyers that are suffering from dissatisfaction and burnout. According to a study from the Mayo Clinic, about 50% of residents are burned out. Among the findings:
Nearly 15 percent said their overall quality of life was "somewhat bad" or "as bad as it can be."
One-third said they were somewhat or very dissatisfied with work-life balance.
Forty-six percent said they were feeling emotionally exhausted at least once a week.
Nearly 29 percent said they felt detached or unable to feel emotion at least once a week.
More than half said they had at least one symptom of burnout.
Those burdened with debt are the most stressed out. The report also stated that stressed out residents have less empathy. Read more here.
