The Employment Insider column over at the National Jurist Magazine periodically runs stories on "hot practice areas" for lawyers (here, here and here). The most recent column, though, takes a different approach by naming several hot alternative careers for lawyers. Call me skeptical for questioning whether "legal recruiting" is really a viable option these days given the general lack of legal hiring going on but "finance" and "higher education" certainly have potential for those with a law degree who either want to change jobs or are having trouble finding work as a lawyer. Check out for yourself the full list of suggestions here.
