Searching for Balance: Millennial Lawyers’ Perspective on the Legal Industry

NALP Law Firm Recruiter Breakfast
Thursday, April 27 I 7:30 AM - 8:15 AM

Thank you for your interest in our breakfast. Registration is now closed as we are at capacity. If you’d like to join the waitlist, please contact Heather Nielsen at

We hope you will join us Thursday, April 27, from 7:30–8:15 a.m. for a bite to eat and to dive into the attitudes and ideals of Millennial lawyers. Some initial insights we found interesting, include: 

  • Over half of all respondents believe that the current generation of law firm leadership has outstayed their effectiveness.
  • Compensation and work/life balance were rated the most important factors for respondents evaluating potential employers.
  • Eighty-seven percent of respondents said that their firms allow them to work from home one or more days a week, with two days the most common option.

Register now to attend the breakfast, join in the engaging discussion and enter for a chance to win a $500 AMEX gift card. Note, you must be in attendance to win. We look forward to sharing content with you and getting your insights. See you in Vancouver!
