Posted Today on AboveTheLaw.com – From the Career Files: The First Step in Leaving Law Behind — It’s the Money, Stupid

As a contributing writer to Above the Law’s Career Center, today they published part I of a five part series I’m writing on how to leave the law.

Posted Today on AboveTheLaw.com – (Part II) What to Consider When Considering an In-House Counsel Position

I’m very excited to have Above the Law publish Part II of the article “What to Consider When Considering an In-House Counsel Position” (Read Part I here).  Part II of the article continues to explore just what it takes to be an in-house attorney, focusing specifically on the stereotypes associated with the role, how to manage budgets and the potential career paths.  While these in-house positions are often coveted and hard to get, we at Leave Law Behind stress focusing on the critical analysis (of one’s personal skills and the job’s duties) it takes to ensure that this role could be the answer to an attorney’s job hunting prayers.
