Do you see yourself practicing law if you can’t get back into your current firm?
Lots of places have JD/MBA combos.

Yes, I can see myself practicing law for business but I’m not interested in practicing criminal justice.

Wondering if it’s in my head… or if other have experienced the same? Up until recently at my new job, I’ve always experienced narcissistic/misogynistic men at work who like to mansplain to me as a woman in finance.

Any thoughts?
