There have been many famous lawyers throughout history who, in addition to practicing law, also built and ran successful businesses or participated in ventures that didn’t always relate directly to law. Elizabeth Halloway Marston, for example, after receiving an LLB degree from Boston University, helped develop systolic blood pressure test. John Adams, in addition to many other primary responsibilities he had, acted as the main writer of the Massachusetts Constitution, which served as a model for the Constitution of the United States of America. This tradition of lawyers investing time and resources into other unrelated ventures has continued over time. The following infographic highlights a few entrepreneurial lawyers who have found great success in other ventures they chose to develop or invested in after receiving their law degrees.
