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 first of the series is Making a Firm Exit – Transitioning to Government, In-house or Non-Profit Employment.

Have you decided that law firm life is not for you and you’re ready to practice law in a different setting? Hear from a panel of practitioners who left their law firms and are now working in the government, in-house at a corporation, and in a non-profit organization. They will share how they made their exit from the firm and provide been-there-done-that tips for a job search targeting these types of organizations.
