Life After Law

Publisher: Bibliomotion Incorporated
ISBN: 1937134644
Release Date: 2013
Genre: Business & Economics

" Written by Harvard-trained ex-law firm partner Liz Brown, Life After Law: Finding Work You Love with the J.D. You Have provides specific, realistic, and honest advice on alternative careers for lawyers. Unlike generic or abstract career guides, Life After Law shows lawyers how to reframe their legal experience to their competitive advantage, no matter how long they have been in or out of practice, to find work they truly love. Brown herself moved from a high-powered partnership position into an alternate career and draws from this experience, as well of dozens of former practicing attorneys, in the book. She acknowledges that changing careers is hard - much harder than it was for most lawyers to get their first legal job after law school - but it can ultimately be more fulfilling for many than a life in law. Life After Law offers an alternative framework and valuable analytic tools for potential careers to help launch lawyers into new fields and make them attractive hires for non-legal employers. "--
