Legal Diversity: Ageism, the Law Firm, and the New Lawyer

course overview:

More and more students are taking less traditional paths on their way through law school; not every “new" lawyer is a “young" lawyer. So how can the modern practice of law leverage the rich work experiences of older graduates while balancing against their relative inexperience in their new profession? What considerations can create a productive environment that is welcoming to all and also good for business?

This webinar was a discussion of this trend and its impact upon the legal community. It explores how to leverage professionals who bring a fresh view of legal practice and a wealth of knowledge in business, government, or other industries to today’s legal community.

Whether you are a career-reinventor coming to the practice of law late in life, or part of a firm or organization searching for ways to infuse new life, ideas and perspective into the changing legal landscape, you'll gain a different way of viewing what people can bring to the table or offer one another.

PRESENTED BY:

After watching the video presentation, complete a short Knowledge Check. Once you fill out an evaluation, a certificate can then be issued for attorneys wishing to self-report for CLE credit (this program should be valid for 1 - 1.5 CLE credits in most jurisdictions).

TIPS & TAKEAWAYS:

  • How candidates can most effectively highlight their previous career experience
  • Questions both parties can ask during interviews to address worries or concerns
  • Onboarding the career-reinventor with an eye towards leveraging experience
  • Ways both parties can integrate into a multi-generational space

PRICING:

Members: $30
Non-members: $45 

CLE Eligibility:

Our programs are now approved for CLE in Pennsylvania! We report participation once a month to PACLE; if you have any questions, please contact us.

Our on-demand programs are not pre-approved for CLE in other jurisdictions because we can’t know in advance which jurisdictions participants will be from, and because becoming pre-approved in every jurisdiction is cost-prohibitive. However, all our courses are designed in such a way that they meet the requirements of most CLE bodies; participants should be able to receive credit when self-reporting* in their jurisdiction. Check your state bar's website for details; more information is available in each course.

*Texas does not allow attorneys to self-report for online programs; we are working on a way to get our programs approved in Texas.
