Judgment Reversed: Alternative Careers for Lawyers

Reversed Grown tired of the practice of law? If so, you may find Judgment Reversed: Alternative Careers for Lawyers to be a helpful resource. The author, Jeffrey Strausser, is a lawyer who successfully transitioned to an alternative career, including service as the Director of Marketing for a Fortune 500 Company. Interviews with key decision makers about the qualities they look for in hiring for high value positions supplement his own personal knowledge and experience in providing advice for the legal job changer.

Strausser covers the entire territory of a career change, beginning with the question, "Are you sure that you really want a change?" He recognizes that an attorney who has invested so much time, money, and effort in legal training will want to assure him or herself that the business sector can provide careers with similar material and psychic satisfactions. He lists the characteristics possessed by business leaders, and shows how law school and legal practice develop those very same characteristics. He emphasizes the importance of finding a position that will utilize the job seeker's personal and professional strengths, and provides worksheets and a plan for identifying strengths and career preferences.
