The shape of things to come - Future Lawyers roundtable
As the appetite for partnership among young lawyers continues to wane, how will this affect the future of the legal profession? This was one of the topics covered by the roundtable on Future Lawyers held by Legal Week in association with Badenoch & Clark on 8 June. The main results of the survey of more than 900 lawyers that was conducted in March highlighted a number of areas of conflict between partners and business owners on one hand and assistants and associates on the other. According to Badenoch & Clark senior manager Colin Loth, the state of the economy is a major factor in legal recruitment. "The economic background of the recession simply compounded, and in some cases accelerated, existing trends in the legal recruitment market," he said.
The Future Lawyers roundtable, held on 8 June, highlighted partnership prospects, associate specialisation and alternative business models. Des Cahill reports
