Top 10 myths about law firms

Myth 1
Myths 01

Law firms work you to death.

At some firms you may find yourself working consistently long hours. At Landers we encourage our people to have a balanced life outside of work. Sure, there will be times when you’ll need to work late, because a client has a big problem only we can fix, which can be very exciting! But there’s no satisfaction being the last person left to turn out the light, just for the sake of it. We mean it when we say we want you to have a life outside of work.

Myth 2
Myths 02

If you join a big firm, you’ll get to do better work.

Size is no guarantee of quality work - the really interesting stuff that uses your legal skills to solve problems and bring change - or that you’ll be involved in it. We work with some of the biggest names in Australia, and so do our grads.

Myth 4
Myths 03

Graduates are chained to the printer.

Or the filing room. Or the court trolley. There’s a reason people think grads do the partners’ grunt work and wait ages before they get to do any legal thinking. It happens. But not here. Here you’ll do real legal work; you’ll work with clients and have real responsibility in matters from day one. We want you to contribute. Not just “be useful.”
