The pandemic has engendered a real war for talent, as lawyers at all levels of seniority are looking for better opportunities and work environments. For many lawyers, retaining the flexibility to work from home when and as often as they would like is a paramount consideration. Research surveys have confirmed that this is particularly true for women and diverse lawyers, especially those with young children. In fact, many of them have voted with their feet by leaving employers who failed to offer sufficiently attractive hybrid work policies. At the same time, however, clients are demanding that law firms have a pipeline of mid-to-senior level women and diverse lawyers who can handle their matters, and therefore attrition poses a serious problem.

In this program, we will explore how legal employers can create workplace policies and cultures that will attract and retain lawyers and keep them engaged and connected, regardless of where they work. We will also discuss the need for employers to prevent the recurrence of the pre-pandemic gender divide among those who availed themselves of part-time or flex-time work policies, and steps that individual lawyers can take to help ensure that working remotely does not impede their advancement and success.
