Nontraditional Careers in the Law


Nontraditional Careers in the Law

Recorded On 04/18/2024


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