    Liz Brown is Assistant Professor of Business Law at Bentley University. She is also the former Executive Director in Boston of Golden Seeds, one of the largest angel investor networks in the United States. Prior to joining Golden Seeds, Liz was a partner in a leading international law firm, specializing in intellectual property. Liz has practiced law in London, San Francisco, and Boston, advising senior executives at Fortune 500 companies on legal strategies and managing multi-million dollar cases from inception to successful resolution. As President of the Harvard Law School Association of Northern California, she developed an innovative series of programs for members and created a new women's network for HLS alumnae in the Bay Area. She also has significant pro bono experience representing low-income clients on a wide range of issues. Liz is a Boston native and graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School.
    Written by Harvard-trained ex-law firm partner Liz Brown, Life After Law: Finding Work You Love with the J.D. You Have provides specific, realistic, and honest advice on alternative careers for lawyers. Unlike generic career guides, Life After Law shows lawyers how to reframe their legal experience to their competitive advantage, no matter how long they have been in or out of practice, to find work they truly love. Brown herself moved from a high-powered partnership into an alternative career and draws from this experience, as well as that of dozens of former practicing attorneys, in the book. She acknowledges that changing careers is hard much harder than it was for most lawyers to get their first legal job after law school but it can ultimately be more fulfilling for many than a life in law. Life After Law offers an alternative framework and valuable analytic tools for potential careers to help launch lawyers into new fields and make them attractive hires for non-legal employers.
