"Leave Law Behind is an organization that helps lawyers exit the profession, declaring on its website that “there is an easier, less painful, less stressful and lucrative way to make money.” The organization’s founder, a former lawyer named Casey Berman, told Quart that “he saw his mission as ‘motivating’ former lawyers who are either broke or deeply frustrated, or both.”

In the book, Quart illustrates how lawyers are weighed down with massive debt while making a fraction of what they used to before the Great Recession — if they’re lucky enough to find a job at all."

Is anyone a member of Leave Law Behind?

Member? No, but I'm on their marketing list.

From what they've sent me so far, they want to sell brochures and seminars on how to "Leave Law Behind." The problem is that these are priced for people who have been associates or better and are or were accustomed to pulling in >150K annually. If you want to leave the field because you haven't had a years that you got paid half what you borrowed for law school, you're sh#t outa luck.
