WBA Spring Career Series: Make Your Moves

The WBA Spring Career Series will feature women lawyers sharing how they have made moves in their careers. Whether it's moving to a new job or building a longer-term career view, the five sessions will feature been-there-done-that tips as well as networking with panelists and session attendees. Register for one or the whole series.

The second of the series is Change Your Firm, Change Your Life - Making Lateral Moves

Gone are the days when most attorneys spend their entire career at the same law firm. There are many reasons to move to a different law firm, and many factors to consider before doing so. This panel will feature lawyers from firms of various sizes who have made lateral moves between firms and relocated to different geographies. They will talk about the process involved in a lateral move, as well as how to evaluate lateral options available to you.
