Choosing an Alternative Career Path with a Law Degree

Part of the Law School For Dummies Cheat Sheet

You put in the time, money, blood, sweat, and tears necessary to make it through law school, but find that you don’t really want to be a lawyer. Rest assured that you’re not alone. Many law school graduates find fulfilling careers far away from courtrooms and law offices.

Points to ponder as you decide your next job move include the following:

  • Decide whether you want to find a job that’s related or completely unrelated to the legal field.

  • Figure out why you don’t like law (if you don’t) and use that knowledge to avoid future job mistakes.

  • Do self-assessment exercises to figure out where your strengths and talents lie.

  • Reach an understanding that not wanting to practice law is okay.
