There is a millennial shift happening in the law firms of today, which is only natural. Those who are a millennial are getting out of law school and finding firms to join. Over the years, there have been stigmas associated with those who are a part of the younger generation as being lazy and not having a work ethic.
However, this is an unfair stigma, and it is one that older generations always see in younger generations even when it is not true. There are some millennial attorneys who will likely have some of the worst traits of the millennial generation. However, there are attorneys of every generation who have those types of character defects.
Millennial attorneys have the same values that those who have been attorneys for years have. They also tend to bring a lot of benefits with them. They often have a better sense of the social changes that are taking place in the world with the younger generation. They tend to be good at speaking to people and empathizing with them. These millennial attorneys are also well-versed in various types of technology, and they find ways to utilize that tech to make many aspects of their job easier.
Millennials work hard when they need to, but they are not fond of inefficiency. They often look for ways that they can increase the efficiency of the places where they are employed. This is something that should be seen as a huge benefit for your firm because it means that they can find ways to improve the processes you have in place. You might not see anything wrong with the processes used for years, but a fresh look can often find ways to make those processes far more efficient.
Because millennials are often trained in various types of technology, it means that they can adapt to tech faster than others. They can also help to make sure that everyone in the firm is on board with how to use various types of legal tech that is integrated into the practice.
Millennial attorneys have a positive impact on the firms that they join, and they can bring these same types of benefits to your firm. Bringing in more millennials could be the best choice for a firm that needs to be reinvigorated.
