Life after the Law

Total views: 4726
A legal background can be the stepping stone to an array of careers. Many of our candidates have utilised their contacts and legal experience to step from the law into many challenging and diverse roles, including business developers, managing directors and even legal recruitment. I myself made the choice to step into legal recruitment after 6 years of working within private practice. I was looking for a new challenge and wanted a career that allowed me to utilise my interpersonal skills to the fullest. Having come from a private practice background, I realised that I could genuinely relate to my clientele and provide a real understanding of their recruitment needs.

However, I appreciate that a move from practising law can be somewhat daunting. Alongside your own concerns, many of your peers, friends and family don’t quite understand the career change. From my own experience, I found people expected that once I became a lawyer that was it, my career path had been set. Now I understand that there are many legal professionals that do build long and incredibly successful legal careers. I also realised that there also many legal professionals who have made the choice to move away from practice and have built long and successful careers in other fields such as business development and management positions.

The key is to think outside the box and realise that a legal career does not have to be the only career path but can be the stepping stone to many new and exciting opportunities.
