Have a Big Dream but feel stuck in Big Law? Have you ever considered launching that passion project while keeping your day job? Today I chat with an associate who did just that, Corey Laplante. As a junior associate, Corey founded the Associates’ Committee, a grant foundation that raised $200,000 in its first year! In this episode we chat about how Corey decide to pursue this passion project, how he got buy-in at his Firm and what you could be doing to bring more fulfillment to your practice.

What you’ll learn:


  • Why Corey started a grant foundation while working as a BigLaw Associate
  • How to get buy in from your firm for your passion project
  • How Corey finds the energy and motivation to run the Committee
  • Why happiness comes from being intentional
