The Revolution

ex judicata is the only employment platform built specifically to help attorneys find nonlegal positions. We believe that a JD degree should be a door opener and a foundation for myriad careers, not just the practice of law.

We provide resources to set you up for success, connect you with companies that want your skillset and a community of people who know what you are going through.

You are not alone.

We realized that what JDs need is a bridge. A bridge to:

  • New opportunities to use your skill set.
  • Enlightened companies hiring JDs for an expanding number of nonlegal roles
  • Guidance and motivation to help you move forward
  • And a career where you can thrive, outside of the legal world

Here you’ll find a wealth of resources to help you on your journey to a new career,

  • Let’s begin at the end.  With stories of success. We have 35 interviews with JDs who left the practice of law and achieved success in alternative careers.  From banking to baking to bestselling novelist. From marketing to music to media. They explain why they moved from law to business, how they did it and how you can too.  And we’ll be adding new interviews each month.
  • We’ll help you reposition yourself, change Your CV and LinkedIn profile Experts call it building your personal brand which is critical when transitioning out of the practice of law to business.
  • The first-ever job board where 100% of the positions are nonlegal roles for attorneys
  • Create your elevator pitch. The answer to the two questions you will be asked in every single interview
  • Courses like our debut offering: Financial Fluency for Lawyers Moving to Business to help you develop your professional skillset
  • Celebrating successfully moving from law to business, The Transitioning Traveler column is all about where to spend a week between your old life practicing law and your new career and, not to be overly dramatic…your new life
  • And our proprietary EXJ Diagnostic to help guide you in your choice of a new career

And this is just the start.

We’ve got wellness offerings, money management resources, the exj20 — and did someone say NFTs?

We’re adding new positions every day to the job board by extensively networking with Chief Human Resources Officers (CHROs) and Talent Acquisition leaders (TAs) from companies throughout the US.  It is very much a work in progress as in so many cases we are educating them as to why they should want to hire JDs and the skillset you bring. This is the heavy lifting and one of many ways ex judicata with its JD-only laser focus is different than the giant, general employment portals.

Check back often for the latest opportunities and resources, and to make new connections in our community of JDs.  The site is always free, and JDs can access our job board for two months at no cost.  So come join us! You’ve nothing to lose — and a richer, more fulfilling life to gain.

If you’ve already successfully moved from law to a new career, terrific. 

We’re here to help you get that next job — and the one after that — as you continue on your journey.

So much of this is about community.  ex judicata is building the first ever peer-to-peer network for non-practicing lawyers.  You can help us help other lawyers currently practicing who are endeavoring to make a transition as you did.  You’ll want to be included.  Click here.
