Generational Shifts Affecting Law Firm Recruiting

The sixth white paper in Robert Half Legal's annual Future Law Office project, entitled "The Changing Face of the Legal Industry," notes that for the first time, lawyers from four generations are now working side by side. So-called Generation "Y" represents attorneys born after 1980. The other groups are Traditionalists, Baby Boomers and Generation X.

The mix has had an impact on recruitment and retention. Recruiters note that the younger generation of attorneys place a higher premium on work-life balance and are not willing to make the same sacrifices as their older colleagues did to make partner. Law firms are increasingly finding that they need to accommodate such expectations with more flexible working arrangements.
