When Lori Krafte graduated with her doctorate degree in the philosophy of religion and theology, she quickly sought out positions that would allow her to pursue her dream of teaching. Although she had gained experience as an adjunct faculty member at prestigious universities, Krafte would soon find the professional landscape in her field to be a bleak one, with tenure-track jobs scarce to nonexistent.
“I thought, ‘Okay, I need to do something else,’” said the enterprising Krafte. “I’d always thought of going to law school since I was a young kid and I thought, ‘It’s not too late.’”
Krafte would discover a passion for the law, particularly in the area of trademark, copyright and advertising law, but she still had one regret about her choice to change career fields.
