Training and Development

Jones Day recognizes that your development into an exceptional lawyer is a journey that starts the first day you walk in the door and continues throughout your career. The Firm provides ongoing professional development and training opportunities to lawyers at every level of practice.

Informal Training

Despite the merits of formalized CLE and other training programs, for most of our lawyers, the best and most effective training comes from daily interactions with their peers. Whether drafting a deal document, taking a deposition, or trying a case, the opportunity to do your best work and receive constructive feedback from a more experienced colleague will teach you to write more concisely, ask questions more clearly, organize a brief more effectively, and make more persuasive arguments.

Formal Training

The Firm also boasts a number of Firmwide training programs, including sessions on accounting for lawyers, fact investigation, client interviews, business development, negotiation skills, oral communications, and legal writing.

Our practices also conduct practice-specific training. Examples of recent programs include labor and employment developments, e-discovery, trial graphics, depositions, expert testimony, and antitrust basics.

In addition, Jones Day maintains a Privileged Membership with the Practising Law Institute (PLI) that entitles all our lawyers unlimited access to traditional live training programs, on-demand web programs, and live webcasts, among other benefits.
