Career development & training
We are committed to supporting your career by providing access to the experiences; relationships and training that will help you develop and progress in your time with us. Our approach balances what you might learn on the job and from others with our more formal training offering and Milestone programs. Throughout your career, we provide formal and informal mentoring and support to guide you in every aspect of your career development.
At each career level, we also have developed Milestone programs that develop both business and practice-specific technical skills aligned with each of our Associate Career Framework competencies. The Milestone programs complement and enhance the training provided in individual offices as part of the Firm's overall development program for associates.
They combine Business of Law and Practice of Law content, and are delivered in interactive workshops offered at specific "milestones" during the career of an associate with the Firm. They form an important element of our "One Firm" initiative, bringing peer groups of associates to meet and learn together in support of their continued professional development.
