The tortuously named Robert Walters Career Lifestyle Survey has some positive messages for the legal profession. You are an unusually loyal lot. Just 32% of legal professionals surveyed believe they should change employers at least every three years – the lowest of any profession, and well below the 52% of marketing people who said they would look to move.

Legal professionals are also among the hardest working – putting in 45.9 hours per week on average, the third most onerous shift in the survey.
