194: You Don't Want to Be a Lawyer - What Now?

Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking about what to do if you're graduating (or have graduated) from law school, and you find yourself without a job, not wanting to practice law, and not sure how to figure out what to do next!

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why it's a good idea to sit for the bar, even if you're not sure you want to be a lawyer (and which exam to take)
  • The advantages (besides just paying the bills) of working side jobs while you are figuring out what to do next
  • The importance of meeting people through networking and conferences
  • How going on a short retreat can help you clear your mind, refocus, and come up with new ideas
  • Ways to hold yourself accountable and stay organized, so you can avoid procrastination
  • The danger of some pitfalls you might fall into while thinking about what you want to be doing in the future
