Nelson Schwartz from The New York Times recently wrote an article titled, Easing Out the Gray-Haired. Or Not. , spotlighting the fate of the Baby Boomer generation within law firms. Attorney and co-host Bob Ambrogi welcomes Attorney Valerie C. Samuels, a partner in the firm Posternak Blankstein & Lund LLP and co-chair of the Employment Law Group, and Attorney Roy Ginsburg, to take a look at this generation of baby boomers within law firms, retirement, their fate within the firm, options upon retirement and what this means for law firms: big, small and solo.
Over the past year, the legal community has been dogged by a down economy resulting in layoffs, pay cuts and lack of jobs from the largest law firms down to the smallest law firms. What does this mean for law students? On Lawyer2Lawyer, co-hosts and attorneys, Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams welcome Professor William D. Henderson from Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Dr. Silvia Hodges from Fordham University School of Law, to discuss what law students need to learn while in school, the present legal job market and what the future holds for law students when they graduate from law school.
