“Corporate counsel lawyers’ job satisfaction highest among lawyers” (circa 1990)

This encouraging datum came from Susan Daicoff ’s article, “Lawyer, Know Thyself,” dated October 13, 1999.  I have quoted the summary, for which the citation was Chiu, 1998 at 533, referencing M. C. Fisk, “A measure of satisfaction,” Nat’l L.J. S2, S9-12 (May 28, 1990).

Fifteen years have passed since the summarized research.  My impressions since then suggest that in-house levels of satisfaction may have declined, in some objective way, as in-house employment has become more demanding, but not in a relative way, compared to lawyers in private practice, government agencies, or other forms of practice.
