New Study Reveals What Makes Lawyers Happy

What makes lawyers happy? That was the question posed in a study of 6,200 attorneys, and the results showed clear winners. The data was broken down into five tiers, with the top tier hosting the most important factors and the bottom tier hosting the least.

At the top of the list: autonomy. In a review of the study, it was noted, "The more control over your life, the happier you tend to be." Factors such as age and other demographics ranked lowest in determining happiness in the workplace for attorneys.

The full study can be found here, but for a summary and breakdown of the results, as well as ranking of all the factors, check out this article.
