Recently, we had the good fortune to work with our great friends at Above the Law on a project to delve into the current associate mindset.  As with the recent midterm elections, the results were not what the received wisdom would have indicated. (Hint: Gobs of $$$ does not take the place of more meaningful efforts, though no one is going to spurn the extra cash!) Moreover, associates, as with the American voter, have a much more nuanced, and frankly interesting, view of the issues.

We believe this report provides trenchant insights into the associate cohort that will help firms engage more effectively with their associates.

Special kudos go to the folks at ATL – especially Vera Djordjevich, Director of Research and Brian Dalton, SVP, Editorial Director who shepherded the project and produced this beautifully analyzed and written report.  Read on!
