Training and Continuing Legal Education

Each associate works with particular partners who are responsible for the associate's training and growth as an attorney; this is one of the most important responsibilities of our partners.  The goals of this supervision are both to instruct each associate in the day-to-day practice of law and to direct the development of the associate's areas of expertise.  These goals are attained through selection of assignments, project-by-project review and constructive feedback.  Formal performance reviews are conducted at least annually.  Lawyers, paralegals and summer associates in each department meet regularly to discuss current developments and matters in progress. 

We supplement on-the-job training with formal seminars and training programs that are conducted periodically by each department, as well as encouraging attendance at programs provided by continuing legal education organizations.  In addition, we routinely send our lawyers to industry conferences and events.
