2019 MILLENNIAL ATTORNEY SURVEY
NEW EXPECTATIONS, EVOLVING BELIEFS AND SHIFTING CAREER GOALS
Millennials currently make up the largest cohort of the legal profession, and their unique working style has shifted workplace dynamics and brought major change to the field of law. These evolving preferences and priorities of millennial lawyers have created both new opportunities and new challenges. To help law firms understand this changing landscape, we have partnered with our friends at Major, Lindsey & Africa for the second time to dig deeper into the dynamics of the cultural changes that this generation has brought to law firms.
Some of the findings in the report include:
- Work-life balance remains the top priority for millennial lawyers.
- 45% of women strongly agree that law firm culture is sexist, compared to 14% of men.
- 66% agree that law firm partnership is less desirable than it was a generation ago.
