Alternative Law Jobs

Here’s a website that was long overdue: Stephen Fine has started a Canadian site that features alternative law jobs — jobs other than in the straight practice of law within a firm. From the ‘about’ page of Alternative Law Job:

Created by lawyers, for lawyers, our job posting board caters exclusively to lawyers seeking the following career opportunities:

  • In-house, government and non-profit counsel positions;
  • Law related careers;
  • Non-legal careers;
  • Opportunities to join start-ups and small businesses.

Stephen’s clearly aiming to get into the U.S. market as well, though at the moment all of the postings are for Canadian positions.

Although you can sort the list by province, you can’t filter things any finer than that. Nor can you sort by job type, which seems to be something of a lack.
