The shape, scope and the trajectory of the legal career is shifting. The impact on the nature of work due to the ongoing pandemic, a legal sector reckoning with structural pressures and a generational transfer of power underway all number as key drivers.
For many lawyers, no longer is making partner or the corporate board the primary yardstick of success. Other considerations such as embarking on alternative career paths, expanding a skillset beyond traditional lawyering and finding purpose in their work are equally as important. Lawyers are looking to their traditional employers - law firms and legal departments - to support and sustain these new career paths. And, they are looking beyond these same traditional employers to alternative legal sector service providers and other organizations to help them meet these aspirations.
On this 60 minute webinar, our speakers will discuss their own experiences on their own career paths. And, they will consider how to reimagine the legal career of the future.
