WBA’s New Year! New Career!
January 11 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
If you are new to the legal profession and want to readjust your career path, please join the Women’s Bar Association of DC and many cosponsors for a discussion on career transitions! Our speakers have successfully navigated the road to their chosen practice areas and will share their insights. The program will cover 1) how to transition from a non-legal or quasi-legal job to a practicing attorney role; 2) tips on switching practice area tracks from a current attorney role to one that is more in line with a legal practice area closer to interests/passions; and 3) how to transition away from document review projects.
