At Calfee, we are firm in the belief that the best training is from hands-on experience and guidance from partners and other associates. To this end, the firm offers a structured program training for new associates. These sessions are designed to address basic skills and gain an understanding of related practice areas. Training session topics include legal writing, negotiation, ethical issues, due diligence, and drafting of pleadings.
In addition, we recognize that mentoring can come from many sources and encourage associates to seek mentoring relationships. All new associates participate in the Supreme Court of Ohio’s Lawyer to Lawyer Mentoring Program. Upon completion of this program, associates are assigned partners within their practice group or department to serve as mentors. The mentor’s goal is to help the associate focus on career development.
