Part 2: What Lawyers Want: How to Recruit and Retain the Next Generation

Change, however, has been accelerated by the pandemic, forcing lawyers to take a broader re-evaluation of work and employers to tighten their vision and strategy. Lawyers leave their roles for many reasons (often a combination of): lack of advancement or engagement, high workloads, compensation, work-life balance, amongst others.
