A webinar presented by the IBA Latin America Regional Forum, supported by the IBA Young Lawyers’ Committee

Technology, innovation and shifts in the demands and expectations of clients have reshaped the way legal services are delivered. The dominance of the law firm partnership as the primary provider of legal services has been challenged by the rise of in-house legal departments, non-firm service providers and other new models that are emerging in this new remote/cloud era. Now, more than ever, law firms will have to show their skills to adapt to a world where opportunities and new career models abound for young lawyers seeking alternatives to the path offered in traditional law firms.

This session will:

  • explore these career models and discuss whether they have had any impact on the career prospects of young lawyers in Latin America;
  • examine how law firms in the region are responding to these changes, including the creation of new roles within law firms for those with legal backgrounds other than the traditional partner and associate roles;
  • help understand the current role of the in-house lawyer, how this role evolved and what they expect from external law firms; and
  • identify the qualities, traits or skills required for young lawyers looking to succeed as partners in a law firm.
