21st Century Legal Career Series Volume 12 - JD Advantage Jobs in Corporations

21st Century Legal Career Series Volume 12 - JD Advantage Jobs in Corporations

Richard L. Hermann, 2017.

As a rule, corporations do not hire new law graduates for their in-house counsel offices. Instead, they favor lateral candidates armed with a few years of experience.

That is not the case, however, for JD Advantage jobs that have emerged in corporations in large numbers in the 21st century. The mere fact of having a law degree is becoming increasingly prized by companies for these positions. Today you will find attorneys working in a variety of corporate jobs outside of the legal counsel office. This is, of course, more often the case in large companies that can afford such divisions of labor. Moreover, these positions are more highly concentrated in certain industries than in others.

Find out how to identify which corporate departments in what industries are most likely to hire JDs, in 21st Legal Career Series, Volume 12, JD Advantage Jobs in Corporations: Expanding the Legal Function.

Contents include:

  • Why Are Corporate JD Advantage Jobs So Hot?
  • Selected JD Advantage Job Titles and Work Environments
  • A Look at JD Advantage-Heavy Industries
  • Positioning Yourself for a Corporate JD Advantage Job
  • What Do Corporate JD Advantage Jobs Pay?
  • Advance Notice of Corporate JD Advantage Opportunities
  • A Word About Nonprofit Corporations
