This webinar is a part 2 of the CBABC Talent Management Series.

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 leave their roles for many reasons (often a combination of): lack of advancement or engagement, high workloads, compensation, work-life balance, amongst others. 

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.
