This article reports on research at the University of Newcastle, Australia, in 2006, which sought to identify the major causes of stress and dissatisfaction among lawyers and to correlate that information with measures of lawyers’ mental wellbeing (neuroticism), emotional intelligence, and the type of legal education and practical legal training (PLT) they had received. Part II reviews the relevant literature, Part III outlines the methodology, Part IV the findings, and Part V the recommendations.
