In the legal field, lawyers often view issues and problems with urgency and with diligence. Shifting careers does not presuppose a changed work ethic, and it does not automatically imply a modified approach to pressure or anxiety. Those considerations often come from within a person, and they are greatly impacted by a variety of collective and individual factors.
This presentation will address some foundational pieces about non-traditional careers and discuss ongoing engagement, connection, and purpose in the legal community. The presentation will also focus on the Rules of Professional Conduct which may be implicated by non-traditional practice. If a lawyer elects to remove their presence entirely from all things attorney, that’s fully their decision. If a lawyer worries about losing that part of their identity, though, it’s significant to recognize that their voice and their passion can remain very active and heard.
