Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

In the past both Nicolas and I have resorted to this blog to express our views on the issue of competition lawyers who can get no satisfaction (jobwise) (see here and here). It now seems that U.S. Law Schools are reacting to the perception of lawyers being unhappy by offering their students the chance to study this phenomenon in depth with a view to coming up with some sensible solutions.

Those are good news. There are many of us who, although enjoying what we do (or precisely because of this), believe that many things could be done differently and better within the legal profession. The best lawyers deserve better. In the long term, outstanding legal skills and excellent client service can only be offered by satisfied lawyers. Otherwise, our profession risks losing new generations of not so short-sighted and highly skilled lawyers.
