This is a case where the answers are not that hard. There are plenty of jobs, especially in Washington, D.C., and even more near Philadelphia, New York City and Boston. But if you want to match your skills with a job market where there’s no shortage of lawyers – many of whom will be willing to mentor you – then go west or south or beyond! You could also try actually going back to school as an attorney-trainer for those who have already been out of law school for some time but still need help getting started in the practice. Or consider starting my new career as a legal career coach/consultant/mentor/backup lawyer for those who really just want someone else to tell them what they can do next after they retire from practicing law (I specialize in this last one).
