We provide coaching for lawyers with no lock in contracts.
I have had many a conversation with a lawyer or two (or three!) over the years who have wanted to leave the legal profession.
After some sage advice and some more serious contemplation they have normally continued on their pathway.
Practising law long term is not for everyone however.
There are however genuine alternatives for lawyers who no longer wish to be lawyers.
They do need careful consideration and planning for.
I recently came across this really good article by Wendi Weiner for lawyers who want to leave the legal profession
In it there was an excellent quote that resonated with me;
“A law degree and the practice of law equip you with an enormous set of highly coveted and transferable skills, including research and writing, public speaking, analyzing and thinking creatively, problem-solving, and strategically negotiating. Lawyers are trained to think differently, and that difference is looked upon favorably across the outside world.”
I also believe that the lawyer skillset and experience base is valuable in so many different ways other than practising law.
This is particularly so for those lawyers cultivating their side hustles in business.
If you are unsure about your current legal career, please feel to reach out to me so we can work out together whether you should stay being a lawyer or plan to move on.
