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 the legal profession in various roles and venues. They will share stories of their own successes and challenges, and will offer strategies and resources for planning a successful re-entry.
