The Milan Office staffs associate positions with Italian-qualified lawyers who have excellent command of written and spoken English. The Firm gives strong preference to those who have gone on to obtain an LL.M. degree from leading U.S. or U.K. universities.
New lawyers attend the New Lawyer Academy, an annual event held in Washington, DC. Each fall, new lawyers assemble from our more than 40 offices around the world to meet and network with each other and learn what it means to be One Firm Worldwide. Our Firm leaders, partners, and associates teach the new lawyers about Jones Day's culture, history, organization, and achievements and lead substantive and interactive training sessions. Every year, our new lawyers take away from the Academy a sense of great pride and excitement about being part of the Firm.
