The workplace of 2025 will look very different to what we see today. As legal teams and corporates start to navigate the changes of the workplace, we are considering the lawyer’s role of 2025, and how the industry might be impacted overall.
As addressed previously by LexisNexis, advances in legal tech, automation and AI are likely to alter the work of a lawyer substantially—but not necessarily in a negative way.
In this article, we look at various other key components affecting the future of work.
Driven by the expectations and new ideals of up-and-coming generations, the concepts of flexible working, mobility and the ability to work anywhere, are here to stay.
This year, both The Guardian, and Legal Week, reported increased remote and home working in the industry. Legal Week stated that almost three quarters of lawyers at large UK firms work from home at least once a month:
A Legal Week survey of hundreds of U.K. lawyers found 72% of those at firms with more than 1,000 fee-earners spend some time working from home, with nearly half of those doing so three days a month or more.
Global mobility will grow in importance in the workplace of 2025, particularly for the larger firms with more than 100,000 employees.
Mobility will likely change the working practices of both companies and law firms, with the concept of cross-border commuters – people living and working in different countries – becoming more prominent.
Employees will also be more likely to become mobile between different companies. Organisations will increasingly sharing talent on a temporary basis and structuring their resourcing on shorter project-based work, rather than long-term projects and full-time employees.
It may become ‘normal’ for people to have more than one employer in the future workplace of 2025.
Either way, this is a hugely challenging shift for companies to navigate, and unequivocally disruptive for traditional business models in place.
