Let’s deep dive into one of the major doubts getting in your way of leaving your law practice: You do not believe you have the transferable skills to begin an “alternative” career.
You want to leave the law: You are unhappy and dissatisfied with your work situation. That’s why you’re here.
You suffer long hours. You find your day-to-day lawyer tasks mostly uninteresting. You are demotivated because you are not included in the partner track discussions. You feel you receive little-to-no mentoring. You are weighed down by high student loans.
And maybe, most importantly, you feel that your professional skill set is not really in alignment with the duties and responsibilities required to be a lawyer. You are not fully confident that you can be a real good lawyer. It’s turning out that what you are good at doing and what you enjoy doing isn’t what an attorney does. You’re pretty sure that this lawyer gig is really not for you.
But you don’t leave the law because you have sincere doubts that any of your legal job skills are transferrable to any non-legal jobs.
