Criminal Law

When Jill Shiskin was in law school, if you’d told her she would become a happy and successful criminal lawyer, she never would have believed it. Jill entered law school in her late 30s with the goal of working in-house in oil & gas, or in employment and human rights law, or in regulatory law – or really in any area of law other than family or criminal law.

J.P.’s path to becoming a happy lawyer, podcaster, instructor and program coordinator was far from direct.
