Fiona Trevelyan Hornblower has a unique vantage point on the legal employment market. She’s a litigator who previously oversaw Bingham McCutchen’s national recruiting operation. And she has spent the past seven years helping law students find jobs as the assistant dean for career development at Boston University School of Law. Hornblower is now bringing that experience to the NALP Foundation—which conducts research on the legal industry—as its new president and chief executive officer. She shares her thoughts on the power of data to pave the way for change in the profession. She also discusses her goals for the NALP Foundation and what’s next for changing legal employment landscape. Her answers have been edited for length and clarity.
