Overview

Though it’s commonly thought that law is a perennial career, today’s legal eagles are learning otherwise. And as recent news coverage suggests, most are in desperate need of guidance on how to keep their jobs and what to do if they’re let go. The legal landscape has shifted, and keen lawyers must know how to navigate it. With 25 years in legal career counseling, Hermann helps attorneys deal with downsizing in a precarious economy. The book provides a savvy outlook on the current job scene, with specifi c topics that include: opportunities impervious to economic flux; beating “recession depression”; using a law degree outside the “mainstream”; combining career opportunities; maximizing contacts; nailing an interview; and relocation considerations. This book focuses primarily on the job-search process for attorneys who’ve been recently displaced, with additional tips for those who wish to redirect their career focus as a result.
