A Sneak Peak of The Priori-Moderated Diversity Roundtable 

Businesses are facing huge economic challenges and the resulting problems have trickled down to their in-house legal departments.

The economy faces an unusual combination of inflation, a looming recession, and a labor shortage. Even in these turbulent economic conditions, legal departments still need to procure and provide cost-effective legal services while reaching their company's hiring goals.

Join Erin Dunn, Priori’s Senior Client Development Manager, on October 18, 2022 at 4:30 p.m. EST as she moderates a roundtable discussion regarding such issues. Dunn will lead a conversation analyzing legal department staffing problems created by the Great Resignation and possible solutions to the high demand for legal professionals  despite the simultaneous shortage of qualified candidates. Dialogue will include the costs and benefits of filling headcount gaps on corporate legal teams with innovative staffing solutions such as:

  • Legal staffing agencies

  • Alternative legal service providers (ALSPs)

  • Marketplaces

Dunn will cover the effects of shrinking legal budgets for outside counsel, hiring freezes by businesses, along with dwindling numbers of available legal professions and how these staffing issues will affect your legal department’s ability to reach its diversity and inclusion goals.
