Talent Management Series - Part 2: What Lawyers Want: How to Recruit and Retain the Next Generation

The legal profession, built on precedents, has been generally resistant to change. 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 now seek more from their organization: more flexibility, more acknowledgement and advancement, and more diversity and equity. In this session, we will cover considerations and strategies legal employers can leverage to recruit and retain the next generation of lawyers.
