Welcome to the Leave Law Behind Training Program
You may be here because you are unhappy as an attorney and you are looking to leave the law. You have found your tribe!
You are about to discover how your “legal” skills can actually be positioned for "non-law" jobs, how you can understand what you are really, really good at, how you can begin to network with non-lawyers and to create alternative career opportunities that are in alignment with who you are and what you like to do and enjoy.
Many consider me as one of the leading writers, thought leaders and coaches helping unhappy attorneys to leave the law. My clients pay me top dollar to just get an hour of my time to share my strategies, motivations, and guidance to help them.
The Leave the Law Behind Training program is only $97 a month. There is a full 30-day money back guarantee, and you can cancel any time.
"My name is Casey Berman, and I am founder of Leave Law Behind. I graduated from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, in 1999 and spent most of my five-year legal career doing software licensing and other transactional work. I officially made the leap and left the law in 2004.
I am on a personal mission to help unhappy, disgruntled, misaligned attorneys to leave the law to find jobs and careers that provide more satisfaction and self-worth.
I work with many intelligent attorneys who nonetheless are unhappy and want to leave the law behind and do something else. They want to change their life and their work, with the goal to be more confident and happier."
I've figured out a system to help you leave the law.
It’s the method I’ve used to leave the law and create a successful career for myself. It’s the method I’ve used to help many of my clients and Leave Law Behind readers successfully change their lives.
Now I want to show you exactly how you can do it too. I want to give you the detailed information you need to leave the law and create a new life for yourself.
This isn't something you just figure out overnight ... or try to do on your own in your space time. In fact, I’ve met plenty of unhappy attorneys who are trying to leave the law on their own, in fits and starts. Unfortunately most of them aren't getting the results they really want. But once you know the secrets of how to leave the law – it’s the most direct way to change your life, increase your confidence, and finally experience the happiness that is inside of you.
Learn to Mitigate and Extinguish the Fears So You Can Confidently Understand the Value You Bring the World And Get the (Non-Law) Job You Want
Fear of failure and embarrassment and risk and ridicule (and many others) can stop us dead in our tracks before we can even get started leaving the law.
In Month 1, we explore how to become courageous and creative and forceful in reducing these fears and mitigating them as obstacles.
- We list out the actual fears that are keeping us from leaving and stare them in the face
- We discuss 9 actionable ways to reduce the influence and weight these fears have on us
- We answer some focused questions and do exercises to help us overcome these fears
And once we're done with Month 1, we will have identified the fears keeping us from leaving and we can find ways to make these fears less and less scary.
Learn How to Create A New Professional Identity That is Something Other Than An Attorney and Leave Behind Your Need to Solely Identify as a Lawyer
A major hurdle many of us face in leaving the law involves our identity as a lawyer. For some of us, we’re so unhappy being a lawyer, or have never felt comfortable calling ourselves a lawyer, that shaping a new professional identity may not be that difficult.
But for many of us, being a lawyer is the only professional title we have known. We like for people to know and think that we are smart and hard working. We like the stature that comes with the title. We have a lot invested in it and it can be difficult for us to shift and call ourselves anything else.
In Month 2, we explore how to address our identity as a lawyer and how to not let our past life as an attorney and law student undermine our future.
And once we're done with Month 2, we can be in a good position to begin to exorcise the demons our law practice and our time in school may hold over our head, like our need to squeeze out more of a ROI from our law school “investment”, that prevents us from moving forward with positive change in our life.
Learn How to Gain a Better Mindset Around Money (and Your Student Debt) And Become Better at Planning and Forecasting Your Financial Situation So You Can Leave the Law
Before polishing our resume, or looking at potential jobs, or interviewing with a recruiter, or doing anything else, a crucial step in properly leaving the law requires becoming as confident and exact as possible in understanding what we can financially afford (and not afford) to do as we plan to leave the law.
For many of us, money can be a taboo topic.
In Month 3, we take it head on. We learn ideas on how to get a handle on our money situation and to become as confident and exact as possible in understanding (i) our expenses, as well as any (ii) safety nets and other sources of financial support we can call upon if needed.
When we're done with Module 3, we will be in a good position to face many of the fears we have about money:
- The fear of the unknown
- The fear of a lack of financial literacy
- The fear of student debt
- The fear of facing our bad spending habits
- The fear of having the “money talk” with our spouse or partner
- The fear that we can’t make money in any way other than being an attorney
- The fear that if we leave our job as an attorney we'll soon be financially ruined
- The fear of an unhealthy money "mindset"
How to Understand Exactly What Skills You are Good At, And Become Proficient At Building a Compelling Narrative to Convince "Non-Law" Hiring Managers You Are Right for the Alternative Job Role
In Month 4, we begin to think about our skills, our strengths, the jobs we might like and taking action.
We focus on exploring our Unique Genius - those skills and strengths that come so naturally to us, so effortlessly to us, that we don’t even think of them as a skill.
It is upon these skills that we do so well that we will begin to base our post-lawyer life and career. It is with these strengths at which we excel that we will begin to create a life of confidence and self-worth.
In Month 4, this is where the rubber really hits the road. We learn how to:
- Ask the right questions from our network to truly understand what we excel at
- Take these skills and strengths and create a compelling personal narrative
- Utilize this narrative to one day impress hiring managers of jobs we think we're a fit for
How to Network with Non-Lawyers and Create Opportunities That Are In Alignment With What You Are Good At
In Month 5, we learn how to reach out and meet with other people in order to build sincere connections of trust so these people will help us find opportunities that align with our Unique Genius and personal narrative.
In Month 5, we learn how to:
- Identify jobs that align with our Unique Genius
- Find and meet people who have those jobs that align with our Unique Genius
- Research what they do and ask for more people to speak with
At the end of Month 5, we will have a plan that will enable us to speak to as many people as we can, in person (say over coffee) for a good amount of time (at least thirty minutes) with a warm lead (through someone you know) with someone who is qualified (they are in a field or have some connection to a field that you think would be a good fit with your Unique Genius).
