In What Millennial Lawyers Want: A Bridge from the Past to the Future of Law Practice, author Susan Smith Blakely expands her audience beyond young women lawyers to ALL young lawyers and those who lead them. Following the success of her three-book Best Friends at that Bar series, Ms. Blakely shifts her focus to millennial lawyers who are the future of the law profession.

This book is for:

  • Law students to understand current practices, what needs to be changed, and how to fit into an evolving profession;
  • Law firm associates to validate their instincts about outdated law firm policies and toxic law firm cultures; and
  • Law firm leaders to understand millennial lawyers and to make the necessary changes to law firm cultures to retain talent and lead them into the next quarter of the 21st century.

Through extensive research about millennial lawyers and by millennial lawyers as well as entertaining and inspirational stories of lawyers from a generation past, Blakely makes a case that demonstrates a healthier path forward for a profession in transition—a path enriched by recapture of the values and beliefs, which successfully guided lawyers of the Greatest Generation. The message is that bad habits and toxic environments are not beyond repair if we listen to the voices of a new generation of lawyers and help them—and us—find a better way forward.

You will learn:

  • The facts about millennial lawyers;
  • The values that millennial lawyers bring to the profession;
  • What millennial lawyers want from law practice;
  • The challenge for law firms to initiate change to retain and develop millennial lawyers; and
  • Lessons from real life stories demonstrating values lost but not forgotten.
