I ran across this thread recently (Need ideas: second career for a lawyer
) which discussed the "second career for a lawyer," and some ideas included legal writing, mediator, tax preparer, etc.
Going off of those ideas, what types of skills should young lawyers try to obtain in order for a second career? For "second career," I'm defining that term as legal-related work outside of a law firm or company's legal department. For instance, one could do pro bono tax preparation to prepare themselves for a tax-related career later on.
Thanks to all!
