Topical event

Have you noticed a shift in what top lawyers want from their employer? Attracting and retaining the best legal talent has always been a challenge. But since the pandemic, it has become even tougher. Will the legal industry be able to adapt – and what will happen if it doesn’t? Join our experts for an insightful discussion about how Covid-19 changed our priorities.

After the events of the last two years, the best legal minds are no longer satisfied with a high salary. They want more. And wellbeing, personal development and flexible working are high on their list of priorities.

Are big law firms ready to accommodate these needs? Will the sector be able to turn the tide and boost retention? And what impact will Gen Z have on the job market? Get answers to these questions at the next event from the Vlerick Legal Club. You’ll hear from expert speakers, take part in a Q&A – and have an opportunity to connect with peers at one of our famous walking dinners.
