Finding Meaningful Work” is a networking and support group for lawyers making a job or career transition. The group will start on Thursday, September 3, 2020, and will meet for six consecutive sessions on Thursdays from 12-1 p.m. Topics are designed to assist lawyers create and execute a personalized job search plan; develop a mission statement and elevator speech; learn and practice networking skills; and hone their job search skills.

During our 6th session on October 8, from 12 -1 p.m., we will feature a guest speaker, Iris Cox, who made her own career change from in-house counsel to a law-adjacent career as a contract specialist in healthcare. Iris’s talk is part of the OAAP quarterly brown bag series called Lawyers in Transition, which allows participants to learn how the speaker successfully transitioned to another job or career. You do not need to be a member of the 6-week group to attend the speaking engagement.

In light of our utmost care and concern for your well-being, as well as the safety and health of our community during this time, we expect to be meeting with individuals and groups remotely. OAAP Attorney Counselor Shari R. Pearlman, LCSW, JD, will facilitate Finding Meaningful Work through video conferencing.
