Jumpstart your legal career
If you’re interested in an alternative career in law, look no further.
Are you thinking outside the box about your legal career?
For generations of lawyers, the standard, desired career trajectory was: attend the best law school you can, and then work for the best law firm you can before either becoming a law firm partner or going in-house. Like many other paradigms of the legal profession, consider this model disrupted.
Here at Bloomberg Industry Group, we’re pushing the boundaries on innovation and building the tools and intel that shape the legal industry. Consider an alternative career in one of the many roles available to those with law degrees or legal experience.
Whether you are a recent law school graduate or have years of legal industry experience, you can find your place with us.
Bloomberg Law Fellowship Program
This program invites early-career attorneys and aspiring legal tech professionals to experience multiple areas of our company with on-the-job training – as an associate legal analyst, legal content specialist, or content production specialist – and concludes in a permanent position.
A 4-month rotation provides the tools you need to launch your career and immerses you in Bloomberg Law culture, products, customers, teams, and processes.
Build skills, grow your career
A few ways our employees use their law degrees
After her bar exam, Amanda Allen was an editor at Congressional Quarterly. After eight years at CQ, Amanda joined Bloomberg Law. “I was never really enticed by the idea of leaving editorial work for practice. But not wanting to practice didn’t mean I tossed aside my legal education.” She has been a legal editor for Bloomberg Law and is now Team Lead – Government Contracting Analysis at Bloomberg Government.
After graduating from law school, Rachael Pikulski was an account executive for an eDiscovery and language services provider. She joined our company through Bloomberg Law’s Fellowship Program, a rotational program where she shadowed each Bloomberg Law team before becoming an associate legal analyst on the Data, Legal Analytics & Business team. “Legal technology and skill-based courses opened my eyes to nontraditional paths that exist after law school.”
After seven years as a litigation associate in a large New York City law firm, Miguel Villarreal had burned out. He joined Bloomberg Law, as he did enjoy legal writing. Miguel now works with a team of engineers to create legal software products. “Legal tech is still growing quickly, so the next decade of growth in the legal sector may be outside of the traditional firm framework.”
A place to excel
Be the best you can be and build your career where individuals are celebrated and encouraged to act on their ideas. Inclusion, engagement, personal growth, and well-being are daily priorities here, and our single-minded dedication to raising each other up includes the communities and environment in which we live.
Hear from employees who made the transition
I've had the chance to explore activities that I do and don't like, use my legal industry/practice knowledge to help me succeed in my various roles, and contribute ideas from a different perspective.
I quickly learned there are many other careers a lawyer could pursue here, and I transitioned from a legal editor to managing a production team. And after four years doing that, I have transitioned again to the Bloomberg Law product team.
The Bloomberg Law Fellowship Program really jumpstarted my career and gave me tools I wouldn’t have received anywhere else.
Use your J.D. and legal experience in a new way
Being open to different ways to use your law degree can yield unexpected and fruitful opportunities. Building on the skills learned in law school, you can thrive in a variety of roles available at Bloomberg Industry Group.
