The Former Lawyer Podcast

Dec 16, 2019

In Episode 019 of The Former Lawyer Podcast, Sarah talks with Morgan Hall. Morgan left legal practice after 4 1/2 years and is now a sales executive at a tech company.

In this conversation, Morgan shares about:

  • Why she’s “happier than ever” working in sales;
  • Being raised to think that her only three career options were doctor, lawyer, or engineer;
  • Being pushed in the direction of becoming a lawyer because she had a strong personality and “liked to argue,”
  • Hating law school, but thinking that was normal;
  • Why worrying about looking like a quitter kept her in law school, even though she was unhappy;
  • Disliking her first job after law school, but thinking at first that she just needed to find a different lawyer job;
  • How she dealt with others not understanding why she wanted to leave;
  • How generational differences regarding the perception of work complicate these conversations;
  • The most important thing to remember when considering leaving the law;
  • Dealing with the reality of having a large amount of student loan debt;
  • and much more!
