Legal profession 🤝 social media trend

Lawyers are embracing one of TikTok’s more informative trends.

Take a scroll through the popular social media app and you’re bound to come across posts titled ‘#dayinthelife’. Gardeners, teachers, software engineers and even TikTok’s own interns are using the popular hashtag to showcase what a typical day in their job looks like.

Now, trainee and junior lawyers have picked up on the movement and are giving followers a fist-hand insight into what corporate life looks like. So without further ado, here are five #dayinalife lawyers you should be following…
