Hi there, I'm Mariam, an aspiring lawyer and content creator and I'm often asked about my career journey after graduating from Law School. Today, I'm excited to share my experience as a Content Creator at Lawformer, where I've had the incredible opportunity to blend my legal expertise with the world of creative content.
Why work for a legal tech startup?
Choosing to work for a legal tech startup was a deliberate decision for me. Deciding on a career path is significant, and making the right choice involves exploring different avenues. I've always been intrigued by the startup environment, and Lawformer provided the perfect space for me to explore my creative side.
In my role as a Content Creator, I engaged with short video scripts, produced legal content for platforms like TikTok, and researched content strategies of other legal tech startups, which gave me a solid understanding of the industry and its offering. It was an experience that allowed me to explore the role of tech and digital content in the legal field and helped me decide on the direction of my legal career in a way that I had not imagined when I started law school.
Thinking out of the box
Contrary to the conventional perception of law as a less creative field, being with a startup encourages trial and error, allowing me to exercise my out-of-the-box thinking. Fortunately, the founding team at Lawformer is receptive to different perspectives, fostering an environment that truly celebrates creativity and innovation. This freedom to share and demonstrate ideas without fear has been one of the standout features of working with Lawformer, as the team not only encourages but celebrates individuality, creating a space where expressing oneself is highly valued.
Looking ahead, my plan is to continue growing in both my legal career and as a content creator. It's all about pushing boundaries and exploring new possibilities. If you're on the lookout for a workplace that encourages unique perspectives and values individuality, I highly recommend considering a legal tech startup. Find one that aligns with a problem you're passionate about – it's an opportunity to develop crucial skills that extend beyond the legal realm but are immensely valuable nonetheless.
