Is it true that lawyers don't get many vacation days?
- Elaine MLv 74 months agoFavorite Answer
Dude, you're ON the internet. It's about time you used google.
At law firms that have official policies, 20 vacation days per year is the norm, with some senior associates getting as many as 25, Moody told Bloomberg Law. These figures are from a February-March survey of 11,671 associates at law firms with at least 150 lawyers.

Those starting in high-pressure firms work very long hours. Court work? Court sets your dates, and you cannot ask for a continuance to take a vacation. You will have to learn to manage your time very effectively, and perhaps take more weekend trips, or holiday-weekend vacations two-to-four times a year.

I imagine a newly qualified and self employed lawyer won't have much pay or holidays but it gets better. At least in the UK, an employed lawyer is always entitled to holidays with pay, newly qualified or not.

If you have your own firm, your clients want you working. NOT goofing off.

No, that is definitely not true.
