Traditionally, law hasn't been thought of as the most progressive profession when it comes to work-life balance and job flexibility. And it's true - many law positions still require on-premises meetings, client work, and visits to make their firms run smoothly.
However, that's not the case everywhere. There's a growing contingent of location independent lawyers working remotely away from the office, and some are even living the digital nomad lifestyle, travelling the world while keeping up on their work from their trusty laptops.
While it is true that you still don't see as many digital nomad lawyers as one might see computer programmers, the number is growing steadily. Here's five digital nomad lawyers out there in the world living the lifestyle they're always dreamed of.
