    Millennial Generation, also called Generation Y--generally, those born between 1980 and 2000--are the largest generation in the United States and the fastest-growing segment of workers today. And as the baby boomers retire, this massive generation will begin taking the reins of law firms. The Millennial Lawyer is a dual guidebook--meant for both senior lawyers on effectively using this next generation, and for the young lawyer on adjusting to law practice and life in a firm--with side-by-side prescriptive sections for the Millennial lawyer and the attorney managing them. The book relies on a mix of empirical studies, case studies, personal interviews, and research to provide prescriptive advice, tips and techniques, and best practices. From mentoring and feedback tips and learning the best ways to emphasize professionalism and self sufficiency, to understanding (and embracing) Millennials' use of social media and capitalizing on their entrepreneurial spirit, this book offers best practices for both the firm and the young lawyer on how best to use this new generation to enhance your legal practice.
