Wondering about the Former Lawyer Collaborative? In this episode, I talk about how the Collaborative works, past and upcoming workshops, and some of the amazing feedback I’ve received from members.

What is the Former Lawyer Collaborative?

In brief, the Collaborative is a confidential support community for lawyers who are trying to figure out whether they want to leave the law and what they want to do instead. It’s essentially a combination of a membership program, group coaching, and a mastermind. If you want even more details, you can click here.

Past and future workshops in the Former Lawyer Collaborative

One of the things that we provide to the members of the Collaborative are weekly workshops covering all sorts of topics that lawyers who are exploring other careers care about. We’ve had so many amazing workshops in the Collaborative over the last few months. Some of them include:

  • Is In-House The Answer? Panel Discussion and Q&A
  • Student Loan Repayment Options with Jessica Medina
  • DEI Careers Panel Discussion and Q&A
  • When You Can’t Leave Just Yet: Strategies To Move You Forward Even When You’re Staying Put with Gretchen Cleveland

Upcoming workshops in December and January include:

  • Careers In Recruiting Panel Discussion and Q&A
  • Tangible Steps Towards A Profitable SideBiz with Janelle Christian
  • Self-Care In Your Current Role Can Prevent Career Transition Burnout with Emily Hirsekorn
  • Careers in Non-Profit Development/Management Panel Discussion and Q&A

We’re always scheduling new workshops based on the needs and requests of our members!

What members have to say about the Former Lawyer Collaborative

I love hearing what members have to say about their experience in the Collaborative. I share a number of different testimonials in the episode, but here’s one from a senior associate at a law firm that I particularly love:

I’m so grateful for this program!

Before I joined, I felt like I was going through this process and figuring everything out on my own.

I spoke to lawyer friends, but didn’t know anyone personally going through a similar transition.

And, I just didn’t feel like I was able to find the information I needed to see what else was out there. I didn’t know what the possibilities were or what the path to getting there looked like.

This is what the program has given me. Possibilities and real life stories of people who have made changes and come out the other side!

And, that not only opened my mind to my own possibilities, but gave me courage to move forward through making these HUGE changes.

The changes are still terrifying and it has still been a lot of WORK, but the Collaborative has been invaluable.
