Law Firms Prepare Their New Associates
Mitchell Roth, Chair of the firm's Management Committee, Caroline Belloff, Associate in the Business & Finance group, and Shawn Ronda, Associate, add commentary to "Law Firms Prepare Their New Associates," which was published in Chicago Lawyer.
Excerpt from the article:
Many companies refuse to pay for the so-called "training" of newer lawyers, who often get assigned to help handle their matters. Some firms hire fewer first-year associates, but others come up with ways to get them up to speed without billing clients. Chicago Lawyer spoke to firms and associates to see how these new programs work.
