The traditional career paths are atrophying. Not only are there fewer openings on the 2,000 annual billables “up or out” track, today’s entrepreneurial and technologically fluent law graduates increasingly want no part of that grind. Technology and information abundance are rapidly disrupting every facet of our economy, and the legal industry is no different. Today, trailblazing legal professionals and employers leverage new delivery models, data analytics, process management, service design, and many other tools and approaches to create careers that look very different from the law jobs of yore.
Radically new legal career paths are here. Join us at the inaugural alternative legal career fair.
Find your own path, build your network, and connect with peers, mentors, employers, and schools.
