Written by Harvard-trained ex-law firm partner Liz Brown, Life After Law: Finding Work You Love with the J.D. You Have provides specific, realistic, and honest advice on alternative careers for lawyers. Unlike generic career guides, Life AfterLaw 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 into an alternative career and draws from this experience, as well as that of dozens of former practicing attorneys, in the book. She acknowledges that changing careers is hard much harder than it was for most lawyers to get their first legal job after law school but it can ultimately be more fulfilling for many than a life in law. Life After Law offers an alternative framework and valuable analytic tools for potential careers to help launch lawyers into new fields and make them attractive hires for non-legal employers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This wonderful book is the answer to the ‘Thank-God-it’s-Friday’ syndrome that affects so many lawyers who dread Monday. Liz Brown shows that you can find work you love. You just have to know where to look. You can do good and do well. You just have to be creative about your job. Read Life After Law. It will change your life and the law.”

    Alan M. Dershowitz, author of Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law

  • “I’m a big believer in the power of serendipity, and Life After Law is an excellent guide for lawyers who are thinking about making a career change. The lawyers Liz Brown profiles are terrific examples of people who have taken their skills and education and applied them in new ways. Law and medicine are probably two of the most difficult professions to leave, and yet the skills and knowledge both require are broadly adaptable in other kinds of work. Life After Law is a must-read book for lawyers who dream of different careers.”

    Jim Koch, founder of Boston Beer Company

  • Life After Law is not just a great book for lawyers, former lawyers, and law students considering non-traditional paths but also a great reminder for all of us to ‘follow our North Star’ and carve our own path—a creative and meaningful one. This is not merely a ‘think outside of the box’ book, it is a ‘leap outside of the box’ dare.”

    Peter H. Reynolds, Founder of FableVision Studios
