21st Century law firm: Inheriting a new world Reports 20 Jan 2014
We are excited to announce the publication of our global, ground-breaking study into young lawyers for Eversheds.
‘21st Century Law Firm: Inheriting a new world’, the third report in Eversheds’ 21st Century Law Firm series, takes a deep dive into what young lawyers want from their chosen careers and employers. With thoughts and predictions into how they see the profession ten years from now, our survey of 1,800 lawyers (aged 23 – 40 years old) from around the world gives us a snapshot of how these future leaders of the legal world are thinking, what inspires them and where they would like to see change.
With growing emphasis on the business of law, the global ambition and push for modernisation is highlighted by young lawyers’ embracing of technology and their desire to see law as a commercial business (as opposed to a profession). Whilst these young lawyers have much in common with the previous generations, the report reveals a drive for change that will help shape the culture and characteristics of the 21st century law firm.
