Significant shifts and consolidation in the legal profession mean that a degree in law no longer leads to guaranteed careers in private practice. The traditional and linear path of articles or graduate entry employment in a law firm, and making partner, is no longer the definition of success in the law. Nor is that traditional path available to most law graduates, as firms deleverage and automate. For current and next-generation lawyers who recognise that legal training and experience is a foundation for more entrepreneurial pursuits, what does career disruption mean when it happens mid-career? As the definition of success also changes, there are many examples of highly satisfied lawyers who have veered off the linear path to make their mark in business, the law, and in public life. Join us as we learn from the diverse experiences of our panel, including a government lawyer turned technology entrepreneur, solicitor turned legal academic, barrister and former politician, and solicitor turned company director and venture capitalist.
