Firsthand Accounts of Re-entry
Wednesday, February 8, 2012 8:30 am-10:30 am

Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.

Many attorneys – both men and women – take a break from the legal profession to care for children, to pursue non-legal careers or business ventures, or for other reasons. Re-entering the legal world may be a daunting and frustrating process. This panel will include several attorneys who have successfully re-entered in various roles and venues, including an attorney who returned to large firm practice after being home for over 15 years, an attorney who now uses his legal skills as a government investigator after running a business abroad, and a non-profit executive who pursued a new path after being out of the paid workforce for several years. The panel will share strategies and resources for planning a successful re-entry.
