Join the MWL Alternative Legal Careers Group for a breakfast round-table discussion on Thursday, March 5, 2020.


"You Don't Need a 5-Year Plan"

The focus of our roundtable discussion will be this article (only 3-5 minutes to read; worth it!)

We are excited to have Jennifer Henderson of Henderson Search LLC and Kristin Haugen of Rock Solid Consultants LLC as panelists.  Jen and Kristin are vibrant, outside-the-box thinkers and are well-positioned to speak about how to leverage whatever legal (and non-legal) experiences you have in making the leap to your next work/career venture.

Questions or comments about the event?  Email Ruth Isaacson at

We look forward to seeing you there!



About the Alternative Legal Careers Group

There have always been many ways in which attorneys could use their law degrees, and alternative career paths in the legal profession are becoming increasingly popular and relevant as law school graduates broaden their career options to include non-practice career settings. That being said, a number of current and potential MWL members have been in alternative careers (non-traditional, non-practice) for many years. The goals in forming an Alternative Legal Careers Affinity Group is to 1) promote the many career options available to newer and more senior attorneys who choose not to practice but are still law school graduates; 2) provide professional development opportunities not related to practice but to the broad range of skills and experiences represented by the many alternative career attorneys in MWL, as well as potential members; 3) create an opportunity to exchange ideas, perspectives, and career options with each other; 4) validate alternative careers as viable, intentional, and important ways in which an attorney can use her law degree, rather than a secondary, less-preferred option to practicing law; and 5) provide networking opportunities for alternative career attorneys to get to know new people, connect with existing contacts, and learn about the various ways we are all using our legal education. Gatherings will be held on at least a quarterly basis, alternating between happy hour gatherings, lunch informal gatherings, and lunch programming. All MWL members are welcome to participate.
