The legal industry in Canada faces several challenges as it looks towards the future. The current legal market in major Canadian cities is characterized by low demand Several factors have led Canadian law firms to develop an approach aimed at efficiency and careful management, these coming in the form of increased competition, pressure to reduce service prices, and the lack of growth in need for legal services.
Looking to the Future:
As technology continues to develop, young lawyers in Toronto and Ontario may find reality in employment at virtual law firms. The move toward digital communication in business transactions provides a potential platform for cutting costs. By paying lawyers to work remotely, they don’t have to pay the rent traditionally needed to maintain office space. The new generation brings a fresh set of values and expectations to the field, settling with working alternative jobs to maintain a better work-life balance. Latest trends find many lawyers seeking work outside of firms or organizations, using their training to find idiosyncratic forms of employment.
Negatives for Emerging Lawyers
As the workplace finds itself swarming with eager young JDs, many older lawyers are putting of retirement longer than the generation before, blocking opportunities for many newcomers. Canadian lawyers maintain a commitment to helping a broad range of Canadians, finding that more people are wanting help than needing help.
