Programs for Lawyers in Transition

In an effort to provide support for lawyers facing career transitions, some states have established "Lawyer in Transition" programs. Initially, such programs were established to provide resources and information for attorneys who left the workplace temporarily for maternity or paternity leave or because of other family obligations, and then wish to return to the workforce. However, as a result of the economic downturn, such programs have expanded to focus on attorneys who have been laid off and are thus forced to make career transitions. Other types of career transitions, whether upon entry to or exit from one’s career, are addressed as well.
