Younger Lawyers Forum and Lawyer Exchanges

LAWorld member firms regularly exchange lawyers for periods of time.  In November 2013 a new initiative will be launched to further strengthen our members abilities to attract and hold top young lawyers.  Called LAWorld Next Generation (LNG), it is a forum for younger lawyers.  The first meeting will be held in Frankfurt am Main at the offices of A C Tischendorf on Saturday 2 November.

Lawyer exchanges offer the following benefits:

  • Unique career opportunities for trainees and younger lawyers
  • Helps to attract and hold the best law applicants to your firm
  • Effective way of 'getting to know' LAWorld colleagues and strengthen awareness of LAWorld with all lawyers in member firms
  • Fast track improvement of language skills and foreign laws and judiciary systems

LAWorld encourages all its members to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity.

For more information on lawyer exchanges, please email the LAWorld Executive Director, Jacqui Nash at mail@laworld.com
