Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Lawyers generally are thought to fall into two camps: those who went into law to "change the world" and those who went into it driven by greed. No surprise, but it seems like money isn't make greedy lawyers much happier.

Finding Purpose in Your Work
If happiness at work could be summed up in a single word, 'purpose' would probably be the most appropriate. We know it sounds cliched, but it's true. It takes a tremendous amount of bravery to step away from a well-paying job to one that pays less but gives one more opportunity for purpose. Sometimes, your psyche will make the choice for you -- through exhaustion. If you're a well paid lawyer and you're thinking of leaving, be honest yourself and ask why. We're willing to bet it's because you've lost all enthusiasm for your work and you hate getting up in the morning.
If you find meaning in your work, the work itself will be value.
