Davis Polk Revisited


Helping alumni return to law
and advance their careers

stairs

At Davis Polk, we understand that a lawyer’s career path may include taking a break from the legal profession for a number of reasons, including to pursue careers outside the law or due to childcare or other personal priorities. We are committed to helping alumni transition back to the legal profession.

Davis Polk Revisited is a year-long reentry program designed to support former Davis Polk lawyers who have taken a break from the legal profession and wish to return to full-time legal careers. The program is open to alumni who have two or more years of Davis Polk experience and who have been away from the legal profession for at least one year. Revisited lawyers can be placed in practice groups and can also serve in other legal roles throughout the firm (e.g., as Practice Resource lawyers or Pro Bono lawyers). Participants will receive the training, CLE and reintegration support they need to resume their careers.
