Our mission is to defend employers. We continually push the state-of-the-art on Best Practices in our practice area. Our attorneys are identified as the very best at what we do because we focus on a Firm-wide, highly developed training program.
Join the team focused on mastery. LOIS is a learning organization and we devote significant resources, out of a proportion to a Firm of of our size, to the training and development of our teams.
We Begin on Day One.
Our training program for all new employees begins on the first day. We welcome you to the team by closing the office and spending your first hour on breakfast and introductions to the entire office (50+ people) including the managing partner and leadership team.
Your first week at the Firm is spent in a rigorous training program, led by our Director of Training and Development. This program introduces the new team member to our standards, technology, and processes in a systemic and measured way.
New associates are not assigned to a team and are instead provided one-on-one training led by a Firm partner and daily seminars led by partner attorneys for the first 30 days. During this period the new attorney is immersed in subject-matter work and has an opportunity to ease into life at the Firm.
Our Learning Culture Extends Beyond the Initial Training Period.
Firm Wide Training Events
On the third Friday of every month, LOIS holds “on campus” training events for all partners, attorneys, paralegals, and staff. These events often include presentations from outside professionals, including recent Firm-wide seminars led by a neurosurgeon on cross-examination, an investigation firm on new tools in social media investigations, a pain management doctor on effective weaning programs, and experts on appellate brief-writing.
Our Focus on Continuing Legal Education
We go above-and-beyond to ensure that every attorney has ample opportunity to obtain Continuing Legal Education credits that are practice-specific. During our live Third Friday’s programs (our monthly on-campus training day) attorneys earn live CLE credits for attending. We have also partners with WestLegal Education Center to make available hundred of online, practice-specific training courses so that attorneys can stay up-to-date on legal topics. The Firm also provides a CLE-tracking system for attorneys and assists attorneys in staying compliant.
