Life After Law

" Written by Harvard-trained ex-law firm partner Liz Brown, Life After Law: Finding Work You Love with the J.D. You Have provides specific, realistic, and honest advice on alternative careers for lawyers. Unlike generic or abstract career guides, Life After Law shows lawyers how to reframe their legal experience to their competitive advantage, no matter how long they have been in or out of practice, to find work they truly love. Brown herself moved from a high-powered partnership position into an alternate career and draws from this experience, as well of dozens of former practicing attorneys, in the book. She acknowledges that changing careers is hard - much harder than it was for most lawyers to get their first legal job after law school - but it can ultimately be more fulfilling for many than a life in law. Life After Law offers an alternative framework and valuable analytic tools for potential careers to help launch lawyers into new fields and make them attractive hires for non-legal employers. "--

You get good grades in college, pay a small fortune to put yourself through law school, study hard to pass the bar exam, and finally land a high-paying job in a prestigious firm. You're happy, right? Not really. Oh, it beats laying asphalt, but after all your hard work, you expected more from your job. What gives? The Happy Lawyer examines the causes of dissatisfaction among lawyers, and then charts possible paths to happier and more fulfilling careers in law. Eschewing a one-size-fits-all approach, it shows how maximizing our chances for achieving happiness depends on understanding our own personality types, values, strengths, and interests. Covering everything from brain chemistry and the science of happiness to the workings of the modern law firm, Nancy Levit and Doug Linder provide invaluable insights for both aspiring and working lawyers. For law students, they offer surprising suggestions for selecting a law school that maximizes your long-term happiness prospects. For those about to embark on a legal career, they tell you what happiness research says about which potential jobs hold the most promise. For working lawyers, they offer a handy toolbox--a set of easily understandable steps--that can boost career happiness. Finally, for firm managers, they offer a range of approaches for remaking a firm into a more satisfying workplace. Read this book and you will know whether you are more likely to be a happy lawyer at age 30 or age 60, why you can tell a lot about a firm from looking at its walls and windows, whether a 10 percent raise or a new office with a view does more for your happiness, and whether the happiness prospects are better in large or small firms. No book can guarantee a happier career, but for lawyers of all ages and stripes, The Happy Lawyer may give you your best shot.

Careers in legal professions are as diverse as the people who hold law degrees. Here, in one comprehensive yet accessible volume, Gary Munneke presents a vivid portrait of Careers in Law. The book opens with an overview of the profession--how it evolved, what and where the jobs are, the various methods by which legal services are delivered to the populace. The core of Careers in Law focuses on depictions of the major areas of practice. Coverage ranges from the "traditional" areas of criminal, family, tax, and corporate law to the evolving practices of environmental law and so-called "boutique" specialties (entertainment, sports, aviation, to name a few). The book concludes by providing some observations about the ethical and practical philosophies of the law, as well as information about law-related careers. Careers in Law provides up-to-date information about the nature of a practicing lawyer's professional life, responsibilities, salary and career path. Suggestions about how to deal with the changing nature of the practice of law--professional education, re-education, adjusting career paths--are also provided. For anyone contemplating a career in law or contemplating a change in a law career, Gary Munneke's Careers in Law can be the single best source for making the right choice.
