Liz Brown is an expert on new paths for ex-lawyers and a career changer herself. A Harvard-trained former law partner, Liz is the author of the best-selling new book, Life After Law: Finding Work You Love with the JD You Have. She has spoken about career change on CBS Radio, Bloomberg radio, at Harvard Business School, at Harvard Law School, and at many other venues. Speaking from experience and extensive research, Liz writes compellingly about why so many lawyers struggle with career change, their unique challenges and options, and creative, effective next steps. Her approach to career reinvention inspires real and positive change. She encourages unhappy lawyers to draw inspiration from some of the thirty ex-lawyers profiled in Life After Law, all of whom have found more engaging work outside of law.
Liz is also the former Executive Director in Boston of Golden Seeds, the largest source of angel funding for women entrepreneurs. She graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School and has practiced law in San Francisco, London, and Boston, advising senior executives at Fortune 500 companies on legal strategies and managing multi-million dollar cases from inception to successful resolution.
