This succinct paperback will fill a major information void for students and recent graduates who are interested in a legal career outside the typical large, corporate law firm. "Beyond the Big Firm" offers more than 30 engaging profiles of lawyers who have chosen to follow nontraditional legal careers, in a wide range of subject areas, practice settings, and types of work. This distinctive book explores the many possibilities open to graduates of law school through the use of profiles, written primarily by students interested in public interest law, of lawyers who made "alternative" career choices. The editors of this intriguing compilation are long-time public interest lawyers; the actual authors of the profiles are primarily students who capture the personalities of the subjects in a way that is sure to resonate with the audience because they share the same questions about career choices.
