(May 1, 2012, Weil News)
Litigation partner Lori Pines discussed formal litigation training programs, both at Weil and in general, in an interview in the current issue of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel
. She is a member of the firm's Professional Development Committee, which coordinates Weil's in-house training program, and is committed to ensuring that Weil attorneys at all levels get the best training possible.
Weil's program has two main components: the first is a series of lectures given by partners on topics ranging from pleadings and removal to due diligence to appeals and oral advocacy that run over the course of the year; and the second is a year-long schedule of hands-on workshops, which begins with intermediate deposition workshops and preliminary programs. The program offers associates hands-on practical training as well as the opportunity to interact with partners, who are engaged as critics and judges.
The article containing the interview, entitled "Training Programs Provide Hands-On Experience For Young Lawyers And Benefits Attorneys At All Levels,"
is in the magazine's May 2012 issue and is also available on The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel's website
