Written by Harvard-trained ex-law firm partner Liz Brown, Life After Law: Finding Work You Love with the J.D. You Have provides specific, realistic, and honest advice on alternative careers for lawyers. Unlike generic career guides, Life After Law shows lawyers how to reframe their legal experience to their competitive advantage, no matter how long they have been in or out of practice, to find work they truly love. Brown herself moved from a high-powered partnership into an alternative career and draws from this experience, as well as that of dozens of former practicing attorneys, in the book. She acknowledges that changing careers is hard much harder than it was for most lawyers to get their first legal job after law school but it can ultimately be more fulfilling for many than a life in law. Life After Law offers an alternative framework and valuable analytic tools for potential careers to help launch lawyers into new fields and make them attractive hires for non-legal employers.

Whether you’re considering law school or are already committed, The Law School Decision Game: A Playbook for Prospective Lawyers explains your choice to enter the legal profession with the candor readers have come to expect from Ann Levine's Law School Expert blog including: • What lawyers do, how much money they make, and how hard they work. • What’s important in choosing a law school. • What BigLaw is really like. • What to consider before taking on student loan debt in today's job market. • What you can do now to increase your likelihood of getting hired later. • What is important in choosing an area of specialization. • What you need to know and do in law school and in the first few years of your career to set yourself up for success. “Law school admissions directors are going to hate this book, but it’s critical for potential lawyers who wish to make an informed decision about their careers before they spend three long years in law school and potentially a lifetime paying off their debt. I know many miserable law students and even more unhappy lawyers who I am sure wish they had read this book before ever taking the LSAT.” Spencer Aronfeld, Esq., author of Make It Your Own Law Firm.
