There has, arguably, never been a
better time to not practise as a lawyer. This is because, Sam
Burrett says, there are myriad opportunities for the next
generation of law grads to find roles in the legal profession that
can be more stimulating and exciting than anything we’ve seen
On this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Clayton Utz client relationship manager Sam Burrett to talk about his personal journey of coming to terms with not being a practising lawyer (something he’d envisioned for himself) and what this said about him and his career, the social influences around what being a lawyer is, what it means to be in a law-adjacent role, and what such roles could look like in the future.
Mr Burrett also dives into why such law-adjacent roles are shaping up to be so important in a post-pandemic world, what they entail day to day, the trajectory of such roles, how to learn more about them, why turning away from more traditional vocational pathways is so exciting, and why there has perhaps never been a better time to not be a lawyer.
