When I quit my job as a law firm associate to focus on Baked by Yael full-time, I wondered how my alma mater, GW Law would take the news that I had chucked my law firm job to pursue my baking and business aspirations. I couldn’t have imagined that they would be as supportive as they are. Not only do they order from Baked by Yael on a regular basis, but they totally embrace the notion that a law degree can be used for so much more than working at a law firm. Click here to read GW Law’s Q&A with me and see how I’m using my law degree in non-traditional (but still very useful) ways.
People sometimes ask me if I regret going to law school. To them I respond, how could I when I use my law degree so much as a business owner and when I have such a well-respected institution like GW supporting me and cheering me on!
