By Eleanor Southers

The meaning of "to morph" is derived from the word "metamorphosis," which The Merriam-Webster Dictionary 2016 defines as "a change of form". Yes, that awful word: CHANGE. Not only are taxes and death a certainty of life, so is change. In the modern legal profession, this is particularly true. It is not something to be afraid of but rather something to embrace, for morphing your legal career can lead to a wonderful rewarding professional life.
