Why a Career Path Isn’t a Straight Line
Even in law school with a career track in mind, promising lawyers don’t really know where they’ll land. Legal Innovators Chairman Jonathan Greenblatt talks with host Adriana Linares about modern career paths and their inevitable shifts because of challenges and unexpected opportunities. Greenblatt points out what he believes are fundamental flaws in BigLaw hiring and training junior talent and how his startup is creating alternatives for firms and corporate law departments while ensuring young lawyers from diverse backgrounds get on-the-job training. He and Linares talk through four good habits for developing a successful career: Go where opportunity takes you, network, develop mentors, and make yourself indispensable. Jonathan Greenblatt is a co-founder and chairman of Legal Innovators. Special thanks to our sponsors, Clio, Lawclerk, ROSS, and Alert Communications.
