Our panelists will discuss their path from law school to a career related to, but outside, of the traditional practice o the law.


We will talk through their transition and what transferable skills helped them in their new careers.


We will also discuss steps any attorney can take to pursue a nontraditional career using their law degree, knowledge obtained along the way  and their legal experience. There will also be ample time for questions and answers from the audience.
