Many attorneys – of all ages – are facing burnout and joblessness. We see this all too often. Many just don’t know what other options are available to them, or how to make a career or job transition. They don’t know how to manage the potential financial issues involved in such a transition, leaving them feeling powerless and confused. Are you unhappy as a lawyer and ready to make a change, or do you know someone who is?

Our Lawyer Makeover Panel Teleconference will introduce you to panelists who can help you to envision and uncover exciting career paths, while offering the essential, practical information to begin or continue your transition. Unearth meaningful career options within, and outside of, the field of law; receive networking pointers from attorneys who have successfully transitioned; learn how to manage your law school debt, and discover how to market yourself in your new role. The panel of experts will address your questions with tips and resources.
