Note "Life After Law shows lawyers how to reframe their legal experience to their competitive advantage, no matter how long they have been in or out of practice, to find work they truly love. Brown herself moved from a high-powered partnership position into an alternate career and draws from this experience, as well as that of other former practicing attorneys who made the decision to transition their careers into becoming writers, advocates, entrepreneurs, healers, and more. She acknowledges that changing careers is hard, much harder than it was for most lawyers to get their first legal job, But, for many, it can ultimately be more fulfilling than a life in law"--Back cover.
