Are you re-entering the legal profession after having taken a short or long term leave from practice, whether after a layoff, family leave or work in another field? Our panelists will share success stories and talk about tips and tactics for attorneys looking to return to traditional law practice. They will discuss networking, brushing up on experience, obtaining new skills and training, and addressing what employers want to know.

This program is part of the New York State Bar Association’s Committee on Lawyers in Transition series of free, live webcasts on Career Development to help lawyers better manage their careers. If you are looking to make a career change, leave your current job, or transition back to the workforce after time away from the profession, the Committee on Lawyers in Transition is here to help.
