Does anybody know approximately how many hours lawyers work in biglaw in different cities? I'm planning on going to law school in the fall, and turned down a job to do it that just sounds sweeter and sweeter as time goes on. 40-50 hours/week, 6 figures right out of college, sweet signing bonuses, stock options at a hot company (a social network)... all to work crazy-hard for at least the next 10 years, hopefully make partner, and then apparently die rich but unhappy.
I was hoping that working in IP law could give me the 40-hour workweeks and corporate salaries that I'm shooting for - does anybody know if this is possible?
