The JD Edge - What Else Can You Do With Your Law Degree?

The JD Edge - What Else Can You Do With Your Law Degree? 

Many of you came to law school to become a lawyer; but, did you know that as you progress your career, there are other options out there?  The Career and Professional Development Office is pleased to offer a panel on what we like to call “the JD edge.”
You can use your law degree to leverage entering other meaningful professional career paths. The road to such paths is usually far from linear, so we’ve invited several panelists from different fields to come tell you how they got to where they are today. From politics, to policy analysis, to more, don’t miss the chance to hear how these law graduates thought outside the box. Who knows – you may just be inspired to carve your own path one day too!


Honourable Stephanie McLean – Minister of Service Alberta and Status of Women (pending approval of absence from Cabinet on March 6)
Lieutenant-Commander Jay Headrick - JAG Branch, Canadian Armed Forces and Suncor legal counsel
