Description

The financial and emotional pressures facing law students and recent graduates can be crushing and could lead to problems later in their careers — which is why it is vital for them to have a safe space for difficult conversations about stress and wellness, Toronto-area personal injury lawyer Darryl Singer writes in The Lawyer’s Daily.

As Singer, principal of Singer Barristers Professional Corporation, explains, it is not uncommon for students to be called to the bar with a debt load of $150,000, before earning a single penny as a lawyer.

For aspiring young lawyers, he says, simply knowing they have to get a job and start paying down that debt can impact their health and well-being.
