Broaden Your Horizon: An Examination of Alternative Legal Careers

You are invited to attend a webinar presented by JAMS and the Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association (MBLA), titled "Broaden Your Horizon: An Examination of Alternative Legal Careers." The legal field offers many jobs and career opportunities encompassing a wide range of skills, experience, and interests. We all share the goal of increasing the number of diverse and underrepresented groups who enter into the law, but growth and success within the profession are equally important. Integral to growth is the awareness of all the various roles available to help you thrive and maintain an interest in your career.
