Bridging Generational Differences in Today's Law Firm | Leonard Chalnick, JD, CPA, MS, Stonebridge Connection, Asheville and Marla Chalnick, Ph.D., LPC, Stonebridge Connection, Asheville
Social scientists believe that each generation experiences "defining moments" during their formative years that shape their core values, motivations, and expectations of behaviors.
Each generation’s perspective is important, credible and relevant to them. So welcome to today's law firm, with as many as four generations of lawyers trying to work together.
Examine the different motivations, values, and work-life styles of the four generations; Traditionalist, Baby Boomer, Gen X and Millennials.
We explore how generational differences not only affect day to day working relationships but also impact many other aspects of the legal practice such as communications, technology, recruiting and retaining new lawyers, professional development and training, and attracting and keeping new clients.
This session provides practical tools that each generation of lawyers can use to understand, appreciate, and even embrace generational differences within their organization.
Learn to identify the major characteristics that define four generations (Traditionalist, Baby Boomer, Gen X and Millennials) including the differences in communication styles, motivation and loyalty, and work-life balance.
Lawyers of all generations will then be able to use this information within their legal organizations to enhance professional and client relationships.

Law of Robots: Changing Law for Thinking Machines | Edward J. Walters, Fastcase, Washington, D.C.
People often think of robots as the stuff of science fiction — but we’re surrounded by them every day.
Siri makes suggestions on your smartphone; IBM’s Watson is the world’s Jeopardy champion; Google is perfecting self-driving cars, and drones carry out military missions a world away, all with increasing autonomy.
How do we regulate and police a world in which actions are increasingly taken by machines, using laws drafted sometimes centuries ago?
Ed Walters, CEO of Fastcase and an Adjunct Professor at Georgetown Law, where he teaches a class on the Law of Robots, discusses the implications of artificial intelligence, robots, and law — not for some remote future, but for the systems invisibly surrounding us right now.
