More about the Alternative Legal Careers Affinity 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 a quarterly basis, alternating between happy hour gatherings, lunch informal gatherings, and lunch programming.
