Change has come to the legal profession, as never before. Once hallowed law firms face unprecedented financial pressures, with corporate clients demanding more predictability in pricing, increased flexibility in staffing and added value from all legal service providers. Lawyers themselves, overworked and worried about job security, are more stressed and anxiety ridden than ever. At this event, ABA best-selling author, consultant and legal industry expert Deborah Epstein Henry will share creative and disruptive solutions to improve the delivery of legal services and the daily lives of lawyers based on the findings of her new co-authored book, Finding Bliss.

In a facilitated conversation with Matthew Diller of Fordham University School of Law, Sandra Leung of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, and Thomas J. Reid of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, the panel will explore the book's seven themes to improve legal practice and client service, including: innovation; value; predictability and trust; flexibility; talent development; diversity and inclusion; and, relationship building. Through dialogue, innovative foresight and penetrating understanding, attendees will leave the program armed with wisdom and inspiration for how to successfully navigate this critical moment of upheaval and opportunity facing the legal profession.
