Alternative Careers

Not all law school graduates practice law. People with law degrees are employed in virtually every industry in the country. Some of the most common examples of non-legal careers include management consulting, sports or entertainment agents, finance (banking, investment banking, private venture capital), education, legislative/lobbying, and work in non-profit organizations.

Every year the CDO hosts presentations about non-traditional careers for people with law degrees. There also are several references in the CDO devoted to non-traditional legal careers. Contact the CDO for more information.
