One is aware that one can be frank on these pages, but a post I wrote earlier today in which I slagged off working conditions in the law and how the country is being run down and the justice system is being destroyed isn't particularly controversial, yet does not appear on the discussion board. Indeed, the comments therein, one submits, are well-known facts. In the yet unpublished post I did slag off partners and senior associates of law firms as tight-fisted nerds who were devoid of anything that resembled a personality. Perhaps that got so close to the bone, hence the post wasn't published.
Additionally, I compared all the guff on the Lex 100 and Chambers guides to Training Contracts and Pupillages to the harsh reality.
I also said that (fact) a career in law, for many, is unsustainable, and at the Bar, as only one in four obtains a pupillage, that the results of all that education are hubris, disappointment and the reek of failure. I also stated that one could be better paid as an assistant floor manager at a burger chain restaurant or working as a barista. I added that one has to be rich or a trustafarian to remain in the law.
If one cannot be blunt on RoF what can one do? OK, I said 'shitty' once. If that's the reason, I demur. But if this post is published with said scatological phrase, at least one knows that cussing is permitted.
