3 Steps to Being a Happy Lawyer


In this week’s episode, I had a great discussion with Catherine Shearer, a Canadian lawyer who runs the Happy Lawyer Podcast. She is an experienced Lawyer with a demonstrated history of working in injury, medical malpractice, and disability law.

What's really exciting about Catherine is she's an advocate for women and children, believing firmly in advocating for the rights, both inside, inside, and outside of the litigation context.

On the Happy Lawyer Podcast, Catherine illuminates issues of mental health, attrition, and the advancement of women. The Happy Lawyer Podcast was created to have a platform where lawyers can learn about how others have overcome obstacles to find happiness in the practice of law.

This is exciting because, of course, often we, as lawyers, don't realize that we can be happy and a lawyer at the same time.

In our discussion, Catherine highlighted the 3 steps to being that happy lawyer:

  1. Love what you do.
  2. Have a certain level of autonomy at your job.
  3. Look at your values and know what makes you the best version of yourself.
