Career transition from athlete to lawyer: Interview with Andréanne Morin - Episode 42


Published 02 January 2017 | Authored by: Sean Cottrell

 

Life after sport can be a hurdle for athletes. Many athletes disconnect from the sports world entirely, while others may feel a sort of identity loss. To ease into this transition, retiring from sport is something current athletes continue to prepare for. As a means to assist from current and former athletes with this planning, we decided to speak with a former Olympian and now lawyer about her transition into "life after sport" and what can be done to prepare for and manage it. This podcast will also be useful to aspiring lawyers to learn about how to search for future opportunities in sports law.

In this podcast, LawInSport Founder & CEO, Sean Cottrell, speaks with Andréanne Morin (@andiemorin), a former Olympian and now a corporate commercial lawyer about her transition from being an Olympic athlete to becoming a practising lawyer.

This podcast also looks at issues surrounding whether the "athlete voice" is genuinely heard in organisations or athletes commission. Andréanne notes her experiences as an athlete in organisations and whether she felt her constructive feedback was used to implement change.

Lastly, Andréanne provides advice to current and former athletes by sharing how she stayed involved in sport, how to search for similar opportunities, and how she managed to balance life after sport along with her new career.
