It’s that time of the year again when I don my velvet robe and giant hoop earrings to gaze into the future. Here’s what I see in the new year:

Associates will have more freedom than ever. Firms will offer more corporate goodies like unlimited vacations and unlimited parental leave. (Two of the country’s hardest-working firms, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan and Susman Godfrey, already do so.) They’ll also require less face time in the office. Who cares where you work, how you’re doing it or what you look and smell like in the process? Just keep billing at least 2,800 hours a year and you can be as free as a butterfly.
