Reconnect, Refocus, and Reclaim Your Legal Career

The decision to re-enter the legal profession after an absence may feel daunting - but it needn't be so. The Washington College of Law Lawyer Re-Entry Program makes this transition a rewarding, exciting, and energizing process. This six-day program, with a two hour follow-up one-on-one coaching session, will prepare you to renew your legal career in a way that works for you, your life, and your family.

The faculty and career professionals who designed the program appreciate the work/life challenges many lawyers face. In the program, you will explore career options, update your knowledge, and refresh your job search skills. You will also work individually with a professional coach to help motivate and sustain your re-entry efforts. Washington College of Law's exceptional faculty, together with experts in the field of career and professional development, lead and facilitate this program.

The Program is co-sponsored by the Women's Bar Association of DC, the National Association of Women Lawyers, and the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project.

What you can expect:

  • Instruction by Washington College of Law faculty
  • Facilitation by leaders in the field of career and professional development
  • Interactive and practical sessions
  • One-on-one professional coaching
  • Creation of an individual action plan for re-entry
  • Opportunities to connect with peers who share similar backgrounds and work/life challenges
