In-house corporate lawyers say technology brings information overload and longer working hours, but more job satisfaction.
A survey of 115 in-house lawyers at multinational firms said technology made their working life more satisfying despite the longer hours, as many were allowed to work from home.
The survey was carried out by law firm Kemp Little LLP and the PLC Law Department magazine.
The majority of respondents (56.1%) said that technology had led to longer working hours. But 46.5% said that their working lives are more satisfying.
The majority of law departments are using technology to enable lawyers to work from home in some way. Only 5.3% of respondents said that they had no technology in place to enable home working.
