The path of career development can be challenging for young lawyers to navigate, regardless of whether you work at a small practice, a large national firm, or as part of an in-house team. The legal profession is experiencing rapid transformation as a result of recent events and technological advances, which has added another obstacle to career progression. To overcome these hurdles, young lawyers must be proactive in their career planning, taking advantage of networking, mentorship, and the valuable perspectives of industry peers.
The Young Lawyers Summit will conclude with the highly-anticipated Lexpert Rising Stars Awards presentation. These awards honour Canada’s leading lawyers under 40 – from law firms, in-house departments, and other practices – who have made outstanding contributions in their careers thus far.
