Training and Professional Development

Venable associates receive training and development opportunities that go beyond traditional CLE. Our "Venable Curriculum" prepares associates of all levels with a complement of professional skills. Junior associates prepare for early client interaction through programs that develop oral communication, writing, networking, and business acumen.

For more senior associates, programs on management and business development build the skills needed for leadership roles. This, in addition to virtually unlimited access to legal training programs by the West LegalEdcenter, will keep you up to date on trends and changes in the laws in your practice area and equip you with the skills needed to translate them for your clients.

In addition, each year every associate has a formal session with a designated evaluation partner to discuss not only feedback on performance, but also the professional goals of your personal Career Development Plan. Our Director of Professional Development will help you find the right resources—be it training or coaching opportunities—to help you achieve those goals.
