We are shining light on diverse law practices, so that lawyers feeling trapped and unfulfilled in their current role can find a better fit.

Many lawyers leave law or keep working despite being profoundly unhappy in soul-crushing law practices. Either way, this has a negative impact on lawyers, law firms and the legal profession as a whole. It also negatively impacts clients, the public and the justice system.

That is where we come in! Not Your Average Law Job was created to be a resource for lawyers who are unhappy or unsatisfied with their current roles. We profile happy lawyers who are in less-traditional roles to provide inspiration, and we feature job postings for those ready to take the leap.
