Whether you’ve been practicing law for one year or decades, it can be difficult to make a career change. But as you may have noticed in the JD Careers Out There video library, many of the people I’ve interviewed are JDs who decided to leave law to pursue alternative careers for lawyers – and they couldn’t be happier. If you’re looking to leave, you might be wondering how to start the process.
In this video, I interview Casey Berman, founder of the Leave Law Behind website, about tips for leaving the law. Casey and I agree that self-assessment – figuring out who you are and what you want – is essential when you start thinking, “I hate being a lawyer.” To help you begin that self-assessment process so that you can leave law, click the button below to get your free self-assessment tool.
