CBA@noon - September 14
Learn how first year programs impact the firm, clients, professional development, and retention of new attorneys. This roundtable, sponsored by the Managing Partners Diversity Initiative, is designed to enhance retention of minority associates by addressing innovations in professional development.
Sometimes the connection is not clear between diversity efforts and the day to day functioning of a law firm, but research indicates there is a relationship. Retention and satisfaction within the legal profession of diverse as well as mainstream young attorneys hinges on factors like professional development, client access, internal relationships, mentoring and consideration of generational expectations.
Join Christopher Habel, from the Cincinnati office of Frost Brown Todd in a discussion about the first year of their apprenticeship program. Habel was one of the individuals who took the lead in implementing the program and had this to say in recent New York Lawyer article, “The clients understand that we are trying to improve the legal profession, and the partners have been happy with it.” Adam Hanley and Katherine M. Klingelhafter, first year associates at the Columbus office, will also be on hand to provide their perspective as inaugural participants.
Space is limited. Contact Annette at email@example.com today to reserve your spot. Cost is $8.00 and includes lunch.
