This paper examines the significant benefits to your firm of upskilling and empowering your junior legal staff in an increasingly competitive and disrupted market for legal services. It makes the commercial case for investing more time and financial resources in upskilling your junior lawyers to:
- free senior legal staff to focus on more complex and high-value legal work, and business and strategic development
- boost organisational efficiency
- improve employee satisfaction, retention and engagement
- increase intra-firm collaboration and innovation.
We also examine some of the key ways to achieve upskilling of your firm’s junior lawyers and what some of the major law firms are currently doing in this space.
