Jobs after Biglaw

Postby BigOpen » Fri Jul 22, 2016 5:25 pm

First time posting so sorry if this is in the wrong section or something like that.
I was wondering what kind of jobs people who leave biglaw can expect to find and how salaries/amounts of work compare.
Thanks in advance.

An alumni mentor of mine is now an in-house corporate counsel for a big name company after years of biglaw. She says she's never been happier and gets to go home at 6PM lol

I went in-house after biglaw as well. I generally work 7:30-5 with every other Friday off and maybe 1 Saturday and 1 late night a year.

Compensation is a bit different from biglaw (more benefits and bonus potential, less base pay). Overall, my pay did not really drop.

I did actually became a Pokemon Master. It is largely because I started my own law firm and my desk in my office is covered by 2 pokestops and someone always set off a lore.
