Sometimes, lawyers and staff laid off from their jobs at major law firms are provided outplacement help including career counseling by their soon-to-be former employers. But for those who aren't, a growing library of Internet career offerings for legal professionals makes similar resources available for free.

Among the latest additions is a free podcast featuring Marcia Pennington Shannon and Susan Manch that was put together in a joint effort by ALI-ABA and the National Association for Law Placement.

Managing a Legal Career Transition in Tough Times, a 75-minute presentation by Shannon & Manch LLP, is directed both at practicing lawyers and third-year law students.

"Basically, what it does is it kind of boils down their counseling that they would give to any outplaced lawyer," says Leslie Belasco, who directs ALI-ABA's office of research and development. "It's extremely valuable advice."
