Not everyone in law school today plans to head to Big Law or to work in private practice. While that may still be the more traditional path for the majority, law students today have a diverse range of career goals. Law schools like to tell students they can do anything with a law degree, but can they? With the high cost of law school tuition and a tight job market, it’s important to think early about the type of career you’re planning and whether a law degree really fits your career goals.
In our latest podcast, What Else Can You Do With a Law Degree? How To Branch Out While Still in Law School, we dig right into this topic. We talk to law grads with diverse careers, who aren’t practicing law, about whether and how they use their legal training in their work. Guests include:
