4 Exciting Career Paths to Take After You Retire From Law

If you have spent your entire adult working life in the legal system, chances are good that you are looking forward to your retirement. Even though working as a lawyer can be a wonderful career path, it can cause burn-out over time. Luckily, there are a few exciting career paths that you can look into after you retire from law. These are a few potential careers to look into so that you can enjoy the rest of your working life.

Teach Law School

Are you the type of person who is great at showing and telling others how to do things? If so, you might want to look into a career teaching law school. It’s a great way to help young minds dive into the legal field, and you’ll be able to keep your mind fresh and up-to-date on what’s going on in the world of law without having to work as a lawyer anymore.

Focus on Public Speaking

As an attorney, you are probably well-accustomed to speaking in public. Now, you can start your own business delivering public speeches about topics of interest to you. You might want to talk about politics, the legal field, entrepreneurship or anything else that you are knowledgeable about and interested in.

Sell Real Estate

If you have a strong understanding of how real estate law works, chances are good that you might do very well at selling real estate. You’ll know the ins and outs of the contracts that buyers and sellers will have to fill out, and you’ll be able to help people find their dream homes. Plus, you can make great commissions while selling real estate, so it can be a fabulous way to enjoy a great income once you retire from the legal field.

Work in Public Administration

One option is to go back to school to earn your online masters in public administration. By taking your courses online, you can take things at your own pace while increasing your education. Afterwards, you can get a job in the non-profit, government or business sectors. You’ll still be able to help others and work in a professional environment like you did when you worked as an attorney, but it can be a great way to switch things up.

As you can see, there are a few different exciting career paths that you can look into after you retire from law. Consider researching these four potential career paths and a few other options, and you just might find that working is the main thing that you look forward to doing in your “retirement.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
