Hate being a lawyer? I get it.
Hi, my name is Sarah Cottrell, and I'm the creator of Former Lawyer and the host of The Former Lawyer Podcast. For 10 years, I worked as a lawyer. I left the law in 2018 and now stay home with my kids and do freelance writing and editing.
I realized that I didn't want to be a lawyer long-term pretty early in my career, but it took a long time to get here from there. I know a lot of unhappy lawyers who want to leave the law, but aren't sure where to start. But it is possible, and you're not crazy for wanting to do it. That's why I created Former Lawyer.
Former Lawyer provides several different resources to help you on your journey out of the law, including:
The Former Lawyer Podcast
Inspiring interviews with former lawyers who left law to find careers & lives that they loved.
A free membership with all sorts of resources to help you leave the law.(See below for more details!)
