Contract Attorney Job Description

Contract attorneys work part time. They make a temporary contract with a firm or an individual lawyer, perhaps for a given amount of time, or for a specific assignment. This job could be looked at as the “substitute teacher” of the legal world, but perhaps it can sometimes be better than that, with the freedom it gives attorneys to work on different kinds of assignments without long term investments into a given firm or establishing a private practice. As these lawyers are hired on a case-by-case basis, they are freelancers, having both the freedom and the lack of security that characterizes freelancers in all fields.

Here are a few sample contract attorney job descriptions:
