Outsourcing Your Training & Professional Development Needs                                                                            (law firms, public interest organizations)

You can outsource all or some of your professional development needs, on a temporary or permanent basis, to the PracticePro team.  We can (1) design, implement, and coordinate an effective, cost-effective, and dynamic professional development program for your associate or summer associate class, at one or more of your offices; (2) improve your existing professional development or diversity program curriculum; and/or (3) provide temporary support in the absence of your organization’s professional development staff.

Whether you are hiring PracticePro to design and implement an entire professional development program at one of your offices or need our help to improve certain aspects of your existing professional development training, we guarantee that our programs will be:

  • Effective.  Using our experience in training law students and new graduates, our training encompasses all the skills that need to be mastered by an attorney.  This includes core practical skills (e.g., research & writing, court appearances) as well as soft skills (e.g., communication), managerial skills, business concepts, and career management.  In addition to a detailed curriculum, we will work with you to create learning resources and testing materials.
  • Efficient & Cost-effective.  Regardless of your training budget, we will deliver the same results at a fraction of your current cost.
  • Dynamic & Innovative.   We will continuously improve and adjust the curriculum based on associate reviews, partner feedback, and the special needs and learning styles of your associate class.  You put great effort in recruiting the best and the brightest.  Let our team provide them with the group and individual attention they need so they remain effective and stay!
