Think Long Term When Finding Your Career In Law

It might be tempting to simply look for a job out of law school, but Leila Kanani suggests that when you’re trying to find your career, you give some more thought to that classic interview question: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In this video, Leila explains how work-life balance differs across practices areas and how she chose to focus on IP Law. In all of our career path videos, we ask our guests about their lifestyle. Be sure to join JD Careers Out There to find out what being a lawyer is really like.
