Welcome and thank you for submitting your information to be included in the Opportunity Docket! To view the Opportunity Docket, please visit www.opportunitydocket.com
The OppDock provides law firms, legal departments, and other organizations with quick and easy access to talented, experienced U.S. licensed lawyers who have been adversely affected by the recession, are considering a career or practice pivot, or want to return to the legal profession after an extended career hiatus.
It will be shared broadly within the legal community and accessible to anyone who would like to view it. The OppDock is searchable by practice area, years of practice, and prior organization type/size. Users may also enter key words that will search the "Professional Specialties" and "Leadership/Volunteer Roles & Affiliations" sections.
The Opportunity Docket is meant to be a first step towards greater visibility in the legal market for you and other talented lawyers in these challenging times.
