Participate in a New Survey on Multiple Generations in Law Firms: Working Together

NALP is excited to launch an important new research project - Multiple Generations in Law Firms: Working Together. This project will build a data-based understanding of this generation of junior lawyers that has changed and will continue to change large law firms. Much has been written about the motivations and ambitions of this group. Our aim is to test some of the conventional wisdom and attempt to surface what is on the minds of these lawyers who will inherit and lead the law firms of the future. Over 500 lawyers have already responded -- learn how your firm can participate.
