You’ve always heard that a law degree is beneficial because it provides so many career options. The panelists on this program are all former lawyers who have taken both their legal knowledge and skill sets and transitioned into careers outside of a traditional law practice. The panel will discuss the paths they each took, and how their training as lawyers continues to play a role in their careers.
