Marc Luber host of Careers Out ThereA few weeks back in Episode 15 of the JDBlogger Podcast I discussed how you could build a law practice you don’t hate.  I received a lot of response to that episode and surprise – there are a lot of lawyers out there who really don’t like what they do for work each day.  But despite being unhappy with chosen profession many lawyers feel trapped and don’t see any other opportunities to use the education and skills that they have so heavily invested in.

On today’s podcast I speak with Marc Luber.   Marc is the author of 99 Things You Can Do With A Law Degree and the founder of a video website exploring what to do with a law degree and sharing advice for professional development called JD Careers Out There.   Marc is a graduate of the University of Michigan and the IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law and has used his law degree to work in the music industry and as a legal recruiter in Los Angeles.  Today you will get tips on how to make changes within the practice of law or to even venture out to a different career path – and just maybe find happiness along the way.

Tool of the Trade 

This week’s Tool of the Trade is Libsyn.  I use Libsyn to host my podcasts and to track the stats on how many downloads I get for each episode and where people are listening to the podcast from. It is a good idea to have a separate host for the audio files associated with your podcast.  Libsyn’s rates are very reasonable and I have had zero problems with them.  If you are thinking of starting a podcast head on over to Libsyn’s site and check them out.
