Elite UK Lawyers Ruined by Hard Partying

Hard-Partying Culture At London's Elite Law Firms Is Ruining Lawyers' Mental Health, Study Finds

What do you do with a drunken lawyer? Advise them to seek professional help.

Or at least that's what one recent study from the UK's professional body for UK lawyers determined.

According to the FT, law firms' hard-charging, hard-drinking culture is having a negative impact on the mental health of many attorneys by encouraging harassment and bullying.

For who aren't familiar with the legal world in the UK, this is probably the most important thing to remember: Five massive multinational London-headquartered firms dominate the landscape. The firms - Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Linklaters and Slaughter and May - are collectively referred to as the "magic circle".
