There are so many things one can do...
That’s the problem with legal education.
It makes ppl square...
In-house, start your own business (hawkers are good place to start), pool money with your trainees to set up a small business, grab, deliveroo.
Be a influencer, etc.
branch out into Human Resources, Manufacturing, Banking, etc

What are the exit options for 1-3 PQE lawyers? How to move to say, finance or consulting? This would supposedly be an entry-level position?

A law degree holder stands a lower chance of getting hired than Mathematics or Engineering majors in finance or consulting. It is of limited value

What’s wrong with entry level position?
If law is not a viable option any longer, you have to start somewhere.
If a law trained person is capable, he will eventually rise the ranks wherever he goes

No idea why you guys seem to think finance is an exit option when law is "not a viable option" when the reason for this in the first place is a bad economy which affects finance even more than law... banks are undergoing massive retrenchments, hiring freezes and salary cuts now

No idea why people seem to think that a reference to “exit options” and “not a viable option” equates to leaving the profession because of “bad economy ... affect[ing] ... law”. If you read carefully, none of the foregoing suggests that, but you were too quick to jump to conclusions.

You'd definitely be in the vast majority (bad economy) if you left for 'exit options' now. I'm not OP but at least he calls a spade a spade
