Lawyers in Transition Special Committee


Attorneys will find themselves in a period of transition at one or more points in their careers. It may be due to their initial entry into the legal profession, their exiting the profession upon retirement, for brief or extended family leave, in order to pursue an alternative career opportunity, upon making a shift in the focus or path of their career, or an economic downsize in the private or public sector. Attorneys face challenges and uncertainties when entering or returning to the workforce. The Special Committee on Lawyers in Transition develops initiatives to help these attorneys identify and pursue possible and desired opportunities, to enable lawyers to remain connected to other lawyers and the profession before and during a career interruption while laying the groundwork for future re-entry and to arm them with the skills needed both during and following a transition.  

The Special Committee on Lawyers in Transition establishes programs and resources geared toward providing career and job services, presenting networking and mentoring opportunities, helping to establish and foster partnership and collaboration among attorneys, developing practical skills and offering needed training. The Committee collaborates with the sections and committees of the New Jersey State Bar Association to supplement and enhance the benefits, programs and services offered.

And then add on top of that, the realization that we want to take our practice to the next level, consider a new approach, go in a different direction altogether, or even just get that first job, or retire and slow-down from the last one. These ideas and changes bring about their own stress and challenges in any professional career....

    Yet Another Thing No One Ever Told You In Law School…….

    Lawyers In Transition

    There are a lot of things no one tells you in law school. Everyone who has put their JD or ESQ to use for at least 35 seconds knows that the practice of law is nothing like law school. But, on the job you have no choice but to quickly get up to speed and race around the track. For many this is thrilling. They will love the track they are on and will continue to love the race for many years. What they don’t tell you in law school is what to do if instantly or eventually you decide that you might...
