Skadden’s commitment to the professional development of our attorneys is realized by enhancing and refining skills through challenging work experiences and formal learning opportunities. Our core curriculum, which is provided at all experience levels, incorporates the firm's competencies; technical, work management and people skills; and firm citizenship and core values. We believe success is achieved by exposing attorneys to learning opportunities that increase substantive knowledge and develop professional skills needed to provide superior client service. In addition, our various practice groups each assign one or more Attorney Development Partners to ensure seamless integration into the group, equitable distribution of work and timely development-related programming.
Attorney and professional staff well-being is a firm priority. Skadden is committed to creating a culture and tone that supports overall well-being. Our Live Well/Work Well platform offers robust resources and training that focuses on four spheres: emotional, financial, physical and social. In addition, we are a signatory to the ABA Well-Being Pledge highlighting our dedication to improving well-being not only within the firm but across the legal industry.
