Nontraditional Legal Careers
While the majority of law school graduates go immediately into traditional legal jobs – jobs with the title ―lawyer – thousands of law-trained people find that their career paths take them to jobs where legal training is crucial to performance, but where the title isn’t ―lawyer. These are jobs that do not require a law degree, but can be enhanced because of skills learned in law school. Many of the skills learned in law school (analytical skills, advocacy, communication, research, and the ability to break down a problem into its component parts) are directly transferable to other professions.
