Some attorneys and JD graduates find that the practice of law is not what they hoped it would be. While they may remain trapped in that career path or experience burn out, other lawyers have used their skills in alternative means of employment.

Hear from a panel of “reformed” attorneys who have found job satisfaction in their new endeavors, including: a legal recruiter focusing  on partner, associate, and in-house recruiting; a licensed real estate salesperson who was also Executive Director of an award winning theater company; a NASM-certified trainer, ACE-certified group trainer who started a company that brings group exercise classes or personal trainers  to offices, parks or home gyms; and a former litigator who started a literary agency which represents authors in all stages of their careers -- from picture books through adult projects.

Dessert and networking with the speakers and attendees will immediately follow the program
