One Hour Special Plenary Session

Virtual LegalTech: Thought Leader Series – Fixing the Broken Recruitment System

Each Virtual LegalTech will feature an hour long interview with one of the industry's foremost experts as conducted by an ALM editor.

Join us at our inaugural American Lawyer Thought Leader Series when Aric Press, Editor-in-Chief, The American Lawyer speaks with Ashish Nanda, Faculty Chair, Executive Education and Research Director, Center for Law and the Professions, Harvard Law School and Lynn Mestel, President, Mestel & Company and President, Hire Counsel who is sponsoring this session.

The legal profession is experiencing serious dramatic changes. The most obvious has been a season of associate layoffs, deferrals, and general hiring distress. It seems clear that the conventional associate recruitment model is broken and has been for some time. Ashish Nanda has an idea for a significant change- akin to the medical school model. For more information on this innovative idea, view the associate article here.

It's not just associates who are troubled. The lateral partner model is severely roiled, reflecting anxiety about the economy in general and the legal marketplace in particular. Lynn Mestel has been a maestro of laterals for decades. She will join the panel to discuss her views about the current situation. Ashish will apply his view from his studies of "hiring stars" in hiring and the legal profession. Don't miss this great opportunity to listen to groundbreaking thoughts that could change the legal profession.
