Let's face it...

You're sick and tired of...

  • Feeling trapped and doomed to be a lawyer forever.

  • Feeling incompetent in your role as a lawyer.

  • Doubting your own abilities and skills to the point that you don't ever think they'll be transferable to a job outside of law.

We know what you're thinking:

All I feel I can do is be a lawyer... 

These are common worries. You've spent time, money, blood, sweat and tears to become a lawyer. And now you might feel like you've invested too much of those things to not keep doing it even though you hate your profession. You might have even enjoyed law school, but being a lawyer is the bane of your existence. You may hesitate to leave the law because you feel you don't want to lose your identity as an attorney. 

How will I pay the bills if I'm not an attorney?

Your salary as an attorney is dependent upon a lot of factors, but you probably feel like you couldn't make money ANY other way.  You might even feel like it's simply not possible with your large sum of student debt. You likely feel that you can't make any real money in a job outside of the law. That the only way to make money is to be an attorney. But there are multiple ways you can make as much, or even more, out of the law.

I wouldn't know where to start if I left law...

You feel it in your bones, that being a lawyer is NOT for you, but where would you even start? You've wanted to give it all up and pursue a higher purpose but you're stuck. While many professionals, and especially attorneys like you, may feel bored or frustrated or anxious with their current job, research shows they don't even know where to begin to find a career they love.

And maybe you constantly ask yourself questions like...

  • Can I really be happy in a career out of the law, or is that a pipe dream?

  • Will I burn bridges if I leave the law?

  • Everyone knows me as a lawyer, what if I lose my identity?

  • What would my strengths even be outside the law?

It's possible to leave the law, be successful, and feel better...

You honestly don't have to feel like your law career is sucking your soul. Your future could be as bright as you make it!

Founder

Casey Berman

Casey Berman (University of California, Hastings College of the Law ’99) is the founder of Leave Law Behind, a career coaching program to help attorneys transition out of the law and land “non-law”, alternative careers.

 

 

Leave Law Behind grew out of the reality that not every lawyer should continue to practice law … and that an attorney’s skill set can be applied to other industries to add value. Leave Law Behind helps attorneys who want to leave the law to showcase how their “legal” skills are actually transferable to alternative, non-law job in which they can add value and create a new life for themselves.

 

Casey Berman graduated University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 1999 and after five years of software licensing and transactional work, he left law behind to create a number of different enterprises.

 

The Hastings career services office asked him to speak about his professional experience in branching out from the law in July 2009 during its summer speaking series. After speaking to a packed room of lawyers and law students, Casey hatched another business idea – Leave Law Behind.

 

Since then, from his home base in San Francisco, He's been on a mission to help other unhappy, unfulfilled attorneys create their own alternative, dream careers out of the law like he has. He's helped hundreds of people through their course, LEAVE LAW BEHIND.

 

 

Head trainer

Adam Oullette

Adam practiced law for 21 years in Florida until he realized that he had found the law profession quite overwhelming. 

Adam practiced real estate law, real estate litigation, family law, guardianships, business litigation, business law, and commercial real estate, commercial real estate closings. He represented lenders and banks in their residential and commercial closings, contract law, wills, trusts and probate.

 

For many year he worked in a job that wasn't fulfilling until he decided to start focusing on what he loves doing, and the world opened up!

 

Despite the nice paycheck, Adam had done it all and was bored working in the law! He began to have some amazing success and decided to listen to his intuition and teach others full time through online videos and classes.

 

He is what some would call a “student of life,” since he was always asking questions about life, business, and the law on an everyday basis. As a result, he read thousands of books (usually 3 to 5 a week), went to any seminar he had time for and took a bunch of online classes.

 

The key was not just studying a bunch of stuff, but IMPLEMENTING those strategies into his life. He's part of the LLB team to share with you all he's learned and how you can use it to move toward your ideal life in every way.

 

Is this honestly even for me?

This course is obviously for ANYBODY that's actually ready to leave the law profession, however we always want to make sure everyone's a good fit.

  • You're unhappy practicing law

    Law might tick boxes, or give you income, but you still feel unhappy practicing. You wonder why you can't just "learn to like your job" but it's your source of anguish.

  • You're lost on how to begin changing careers

    You feel like you've lost direction. You're tired of floating through life and you can't get your bearings.

  • You feel incompetent in your job as a lawyer

    The feeling of incompetence you have in your job is unbearable and you absolutely hate it. 

  • You KNOW there is a better way to live

    You might know that there's a way out of law, you just don't know which way is the right way. 

  • You know NOW is the time to act

    You know that decisions are meant to be taken and when it comes to your own happiness, the decisions you take are even more important. 

  • You dream about not being a lawyer

    If you literally wake up from dreams about your life out of law, then it goes without saying that this course is for you. We literally have plenty of students in this category!

  • You don't want to do the work

    You think this is going to be easy, and you want everything handed to you.  That type of mindset won't work in this course. You're not a good fit. 

  • Complaining is an artform for you

    We LOVE and value open communication but you won't be successful if you view this community as a place to only vent. 

  • You're looking for a quick fix

    You want results quick and think this is the quick-fix to all of life's problems.  It's not. Life is hard, and while we have some amazing students that have gotten quick results, they've worked incredibly hard to do so. Nothing can fix you but you. 

  • You're chasing shiny objects

    You might not be sure you want to leave your job in law and the idea of this course is something entertaining just like the other 20 courses you purchased last year.  If you lack focus and commitment, this course is not for you. 

  • You'd rather be right than happy

    This course is life changing. We push each other to challenge our beliefs. If you are resistant to being self-reflective, then this course is not for you.
