Professor featured in Life After Law

Katrina Lee

Katrina Lee


Professor Katrina Lee is one of 30 former practicing attorneys featured in a new book released this week, Life After Law. The book tells the stories of former lawyers who left law practice and successfully pursued rewarding careers.

Lee, who teaches in the areas of legal writing and alternative dispute resolution at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, is the only law professor featured in the book. Lee joined Moritz in 2011; the book captures Lee’s personal and professional journey from San Francisco law firm partner to professor at Moritz.

The book offers this appraisal: “Katrina Lee was, by any measure, phenomenally successful in private practice. … Her commercial litigation career was stellar.”

Lee was elevated to equity partner in her seventh year of practice, making her one of the youngest in the history of her firm to achieve that distinction. Based in San Francisco then, she litigated in California state and federal district courts and represented Fortune 100 companies in all phases of litigation. The author comments, “(Lee’s) skills as a writer and editor were admired throughout the firm and among her co-counsel, something I know from being one of them.”

The book takes note of Moritz’s “strong legal writing program” and its “renowned Alternative Dispute Resolution program.”

Life After Law’s author is Liz Brown, is a Harvard-trained former law firm partner and now an assistant professor of business law at Bentley University in the Boston area.
