New Lawyers

Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and Munich offer newly qualified and experienced lawyers a superior platform from which to develop their practices. Our global footprint has always attracted lawyers whose ambition has outgrown firms with more limited visions, resources, and footprints. Our One Firm Worldwide approach is the perfect fit for beginning lawyers who seek a client-focused and team-oriented environment in which to practice. All associates actively participate in our regular legal and soft skill training programs and seminars.

Lawyers at the start of their careers join our New Lawyers Group, where they have the opportunity to gain exposure to different practices and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. 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.
